How do I contact Summer Theatre during the day?
There are several ways we may be reached.

Are you Nut Free?
Although we can not guarantee a nut free environment, parents are asked to please refrain from giving students any food and beverage products that may contain NUTS. The safety of all our children is our top priority. If your child has an allergy, we require they be able to administer their own EpiPen in case of an emergency. They must have their EpiPen with them each day.
Do I need to call someone if my child is going to be absent?
Tardiness and absenteeism crucially effects the quality of our show. If you will be arriving late or not coming a specific day we kindly ask you to let us know in advance. It’s best to email our office at firstname.lastname@example.org if your child will need to miss a day.
What is your dress code?
Although formal dance wear is not required we kindly ask that both girls and boys wear comfortable clothing.
NO Skirts, flip flops, sandals or open toe shoes of any kind
Boys - Deodorant, T-shirts, Tank tops, shorts, sweatpants, or jazz pants and socks/sneakers. No Jeans or other restrictive clothing.
Girls - Deodorant, T shirts, Tank tops, shorts, sweatpants, dance shorts, jazz pants, leotards socks and sneakers are all acceptable. Please wear hair in pony tails or bun.
If you own your own dance shoes please bring them. Students will need Flat jazz/character shows. We will try our hardest to provide used shoes for those students who do not own their own. If you have old dance shoes you no longer use and can donate them we would truly appreciate it.
Do you provide lunch?
Each child must bring their own lunch, snacks and water. Please make sure they do not contain any nut products. In addition to lunch break, students will receive a minimum of 1 snack break per day not to exceed 2. If your child’s lunch needs to stay cold please make sure they have an ice pack. We do not have enough refrigeration to refrigerate every student’s lunch.
How do you handle casting?
Our motto has always been there are no “small parts”. Each actor brings something very important to every performance. We believe each child is a star! On the first day of each session every child will have the opportunity to audition for our directors and parts will be distributed on day two. We ask each parent to respect the directors choices and support your child’s role. We understand not everyone will get the role they wanted. Some young actors are anxious to play the lead role, and some are happy just to perform.
How do I buy tickets to my child’s show?
Ticket’s go on sale at the beginning of each session with early ticket sales discounts available to friends and family.
