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.

FOR THE ENDS OF SESSION 1 AND 3, THERE WILL BE AN IN-CLASS DEMONSTRATION. WE WILL HAVE FINAL SHOWCASE AT THE ENDS OF SESSIONS 2 AND 4. THERE WILL BE ONE ADDITIONAL REHEARSAL FOR SHOWCASES. 

 

CANCELATION POLICIES:

 

Bad Weather Cancelation Policy:

Our families' safety is important to us. We use various methods to decide whether or not to close education programs due to bad weather conditions, including school closures, weather warnings, and common sense. Because schools must consider children's safety waiting or walking outside in extreme cold, they may close when we stay open. If the weather is inclement but we do not cancel rehearsals or classes, participants in SBCT programs should use their own best judgement to determine whether or not it is safe to attend.

Please let your instructor know if weather prevents you from attending your class or rehearsal! If a class or rehearsal is canceled, we will make every effort to contact families individually by email. If you are not sure of your class status check our site, call our box office, or call the Director of Education's emergency contact number at 574-780-3574
