Bad Weather/Studio Closings Policy
In the case of inclement weather please check the website, email, and Facebook for information regarding classes being cancelled or postponed. | facebook.com/ActTooPlayers
Observers are not permitted in the studio during a class period or technical rehearsals. Parents are responsible for children in the lobby area and we ask that you respect the Studio's property.
Please wear tennis shoes or dance shoes and clothes that you can move in. Please no skirts, crocs, or flip flops.
Before Class Procedure
Please try to arrive at the studio five minutes before class. A late arrival can be distracting to the rehearsal process which will have already begun. While waiting please be courteous and quiet in the hall as there are other businesses and residences located near the studio. Sondra will not be available to answer questions at class time, if you have question or concern please let Sondra know through email preferably 24 hours before the next class.
Personal video taping of our performances is not permitted due to contractual agreements with licensing companies and the Franklin Theatre. A professional videographer will be present to video our performances, and you may order a copy at the beginning and end of each semester. No photography is permitted during the show.
There is a registration fee of $50.00 per student. There is no deposit required to reserve your place in the class. The registration fee is nonrefundable and is automatically deducted within 48 hours of registering. The registration fee is not per class...just per student. For example, if you have 2 students who take 6 classes the total registration fee is $100.00. The purpose of the registration is to help secure your spot in the program. There is a considerable amount of interest in our program and often times are classes end up with wait lists. By having a registration fee, you are showing your commitment to the program and to the class. This fee also covers the cost of supplies for the semester including binders, scripts, cds, as well as, facility fees.
Tuition Fees, Refunds & Drop Policy
For Full Production Classes: No refunds for dropped classes will be given after casting is complete. In a Full Production class, each student is a vital member of each production, and therefore we want to encourage all students to honor their commitment through the end of the semester and the final show. If a student drops out after casting is done, the full tuition for the remainder of the semester will be immediately processed. If a refund is requested after payment is processed (before casting is complete), there will be a $20 processing fee.
For all Other Classes: If a student chooses to drop a class, you are still responsible for paying that month's tuition in full. If you are paying monthly we must receive written notification via email that you are dropping a class. Future payments will be cancelled after receiving the written notification.
For Summer Camps: A full refund is granted if a program session is cancelled. No reduction in fees is given for late arrival, early departure, vacations, special events, short-term illness or expulsion for disciplinary reasons. Cancellation requests must be submitted via email to twelve (12) working days prior to the first day of the scheduled session; a $50 weekly per session handling charge will be deducted. Refunds will not be granted for requests received less than twelve (12) days before your session begins.
Payment will be made on a monthly basis through automatic payment via the customer portal. You can add your choice of credit card/debit card. Payment will be automatically withdrawn on the 1st of the month. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the funds within the account to cover all tuition fees. There will be a $20.00 fee for payments that are not successfully processed. If you realize that you are unable to make a payment, please contact us so that we can find a solution that will work for everyone without the need for fees.
Please understand that tuition is a monthly payment.
We will provide the majority of the costumes for each show, but we require students to provide their own dance shoes (character, jazz, etc) and basic costume apparel including shirt, shoes, tights, leggings, etc.
It is your responsibility to make sure that you have given the correct email address to Sondra Morton. The majority of our communication is through email, constant contact and through the handouts to the students. You may contact Act Too Players by email at or you can look at the quick reference for emails to specific instructors and staff.
For the Fall Semester we break for Thanksgiving Week and Christmas Week through New Years. For the Spring Semester there will not be classes the week of WCS and FSSD Spring Break.
Tickets will go on sale approximately one month prior to the opening of the show. You can order tickets by either calling the Franklin Theatre at 615-538-2076 or by ordering tickets online at Ticket prices vary between $13.00 and $25.00. Parents are able to earn comp tickets by becoming a participating member of Parent Stagers.
All performances and dress rehearsals will be held at the Franklin Theatre. Both performances and dress rehearsals are mandatory. Students will need to arrive one hour and a half before show times on performance dates.
If a student is ill or misses class, the student is responsible for learning what he/she missed. We recommend finding a classmate to retrieve the missed information with similar blocking/choreography. While we do understand the importance of school and family functions, we also expect students to be in attendance as frequent absences restrict the potential of the group as a whole. Every member is important. If a student is going to miss class, please notify Sondra via email as soon as possible.
This is an opportunity for the parents to participate in the production as well. You can offer your sewing, organizing, painting, and set building talents to the show and earn additional comp tickets to see your child perform.
