Jr Drama Club
Acting, Creative Dramatics, & Musical Theatre for prek-1st graders
Wednesdays, 3-4 pm
Calling all young performers who love to be in the spotlight! We will sing, dance, and act in class each week! We'll use our imaginations to make up stories, learn how to express our feelings and create characters, and we'll rehearse portions of the big Parkside spring musical (Encanto & Aladdin) to put our performance skills to use! Fun theatre games, music, puppetry, crafts, and other creative activities will help students grow artistically while working as a team and having fun.
The JR Drama Club will perform alongside the Parkside Drama Club in the spring shows (Encanto & Aladdin) in March 2023. The class will continue meeting weekly through May and students are encouraged *but not required* to perform in the Forefront Arts Spring Showcase recital at the end of the school year in May 2023!

Classes will meet weekly September - May (30 classes over the course of the school year) and will follow the APS school calendar. Classes will start after Labor Day.
We have set the class calendar for 30 classes but only charged tuition for 28 classes so if 1-2 weeks have to be canceled due to bad weather or teacher illness we will not need to schedule a make-up lesson.
PARKSIDE DRAMA TUITION
For installment options the total cost can be evenly split into installments for convenience & affordability. All accounts must be paid in full by April 1st. For monthly installments you will pay the same whether your class meets 3, 4, or 5 times that month because you are not paying for those specific weeks in the month, but rather a straight installment plan for the total year. Enrollment is not month-to-month. If selecting an installment option families are committing to paying the full amount for the program (1 semester for Jr Drama Club or the full year for Drama Club), simply split up into smaller monthly or semester payments.
1. Using the link below families will register for the Parkside Drama Club or Parkside Jr Drama Club and pay a $35 annual registration fee (the registration fee covers admin expenses such as insurance, processing & confirming registrations, emailing class calendars, etc)
2. On the registration form you'll select from the monthly, semester, or upfront tuition options. After you click "submit" you'll be routed to a payment page to pay your upfront tuition or 1st installment at that time.
3. Students will be fully enrolled and their spot reserved once they have submitted the registration form, paid their upfront tuition or 1st installment, and received the automatic confirmation email!
