CLASS PERFORMANCE POLICIES:

South Bend Civic Theatre values the idea of process over production in our classes and so to make sure the students have the most time learning the skills we minimize the final “performance” to a demonstration. For most of our classes, the final class of each session has 30 minutes set aside at the end for family and friends to observe what the students have learned. This is not a performance or production, but rather an opportunity to get a better sense of what the students experienced throughout the session.

 

CANCELATION POLICIES:

CASTING / OUTSIDE PRODUCTION POLICIES:

Casting is based solely on talent and requirments laid out by each individual director. Being involved in the academy will equip you with the tools to help perform well at an audition but does not guarantee casting. Company students have specific performance opportunities that are only cast from members within that season's company. We value and encourage our students to work with as many programs and directors as possible to become well-rounded performers. In order to not overwhelm the student's workload they may be excused from their acting class obligations during the week before final tech, and throughout the performance. The student will be asked to provide their director with an evaluation/comment form in order to track the student's progress during their time away. We value students being able to participate in outside productions, but students must communicate clearly with their director in regards to their Academy schedule. If a student is cast in a production and is unable to participate in workshops, they will be released, without refund, from the current session. 

 

PERFORMANCE FEES:

Our typical classes do not end in a performance but rather a demonstration that is free to the public to view. Other types of classes/camps that are connected to a full performance will be a ticketed event in which audience members will pay $5-10 a seat. All proceeds from ticket sales go directly to our scholarship fund or to underwrite the cost of producing the work.
