Dear Students & Parents,
Welcome to Theatre Arts for Kids. My name is Leah Kolar, and I am the Artistic Director of Theatre Arts for Kids.
Prepare to be overwhelmed with the total theatrical experience as we tap in to your abilities as actors, dancers, singers, and performers through activities, rehearsals, and workshops of all kinds.
Before we get to the fun stuff, we must attend to some business items. It is very important that you read the entire Welcome Letter and Parent's Guide (below) so that your expectations will be aligned with ours, and we will begin our time together on the same page. By registering for any of our workshops, you have indicated that you have read the Welcome Letter and Paren'ts Guide and that you agree to abide by all of the policies, procedures, and protocol outlined.
The libretto (script/music) and practice CD will be given out on the first day of class. Auditions begin on the first day and may take up to two days. We work to make the audition experience comfortable and low key. We will all learn the audition songs, scenes, and dances as a group. There is no need to prepare any material in advance.
Everyone will have a special part to play in our final production. There is no "small part"; all parts are crucial to the success of our show. I must ask that you accept your part gracefully and show your support and enthusiasm for everyone in the cast. We are a team. Our show will only be successful if everyone gives 100%.
Now that I have your complete commitment to this project…Our time together is never as long as it seems. With everything that we need to learn and polish before our performance, it is very important that you commit yourself not only during rehearsals at Theatre Arts for Kids, but you must be willing to put in time at home memorizing lines, music, and dances.
Together, we will produce a show that will leave the audience wanting more. As a performer you will learn about all the magical parts of the theatrical experience as well as the not-so-magical parts of being a performer. We will work hard and strive to present a professional quality performance. I can guarantee you that there is a lot of fun along the way and all of the hard work along the way is well worth it in the end.
I can’t wait to meet you all!
