We strongly recommend that all theater students complement their theater training with a dance, voice and/or acting classes.

 

Costume fees - For Theatre 1, 2, and Advanced Theatre students, the Costume Fee may be more or double per student, depending on the size of the show and size of the cast that specific year. Each student may have more than one character to portray and as a result more than one costume to acquire.
