TO ENROLL                     

Once again this year, Andy’s Summer Playhouse is taking on a different approach to enrollment. OPEN ENROLLMENT will be active from JANUARY 30 – MAY 1 for children to apply for our summer season.

Enrollment is for one of our Mainstage productions (Mainstage, Tour or Musical), with the ability to also participate in additional programming for our John C. Russell Playwrighting Lab, Director's Lab, Apprenticeship Program, and Film Workshop (when available).

TO ENROLL, you must fill out our online application and submit a $100 deposit. This deposit is used towards the total tuition. If you would like to apply for scholarship, there is an additional online form to submit as well.

Once applications are submitted, you must RSVP to an orientation.

 

At orientations, children will be ask to:

Fill out their mainstage production preference (Mainstage, Tour, or Musical) and any conflicts they have over the summer.
Participate in acting and design workshops led by our professional staff. These workshops focus on acting, design, improvisation, ensemble, puppetry, media, vocal work, physical work, and scene study. This is a great way for families to interact with our staff as well as the staff get to know the kids.
The group will also have a chance to read through drafts of some of the shows. What a great way to discover what our season will become!

Parents are also asked to attend a 30-minute parent orientation at the beginning of the orientation. 


OUR FINAL ORIENTATION WILL BE: MAY 13, 2017 at ANDY'S SUMMER PLAYHOUSE, FROM 12pm-3pm!

ALL ENROLLED WILL BE REQUIRED TO ATTEND FOR PLACEMENT/CASTING AUDITIONS WITH ALL DIRECTORS

NEW APPLICANTS ARE STILL WELCOME AND ENCOURAGED TO JOIN! 


NOTE: Even if your child is not sure whether to enroll or not, they may attend these orientations at no extra cost! We hope this will be an opportunity to see if Andy’s is the right fit for your summer plans!
