Parent Guidelines

The Kids Theater Company offers friendly, encouraging, and expert guidance. We anticipate that every child can shine and will discover breakthroughs in the limelight.
Show Prep Guidelines
Here are some helpful guidelines to make this journey a terrific experience:
  • Make sure that your actor brings their SCRIPT and a PENCIL/PEN to every rehearsal. The script is their road map, without it, they will fall behind or quickly lose their way.

  • If a script is lost or misplaced, please let TKTC know so that we may email another copy to you.

  • Most rehearsals are 2 hours, occasionally longer. It’s a good idea to send your actor or actress with snacks/drinks to re-energize his/herself during our break times. We do not provide snacks.

  • Taking on a role in a theatrical production requires a significant time commitment. Cast members should plan on attending EVERY rehearsal. If a scheduling conflict occurs for your family, please let TKTC know well in advance so that we may try to accommodate. We do our best to be flexible, and are sensitive to other extra curriculars.

  • Encourage your actor to review his or her scenes prior to rehearsal. The more practice with lines, then the more familiar and comfortable they'll be during rehearsal, and the more they'll be able to innovate with his or her character. Every production has a deadline date by which ALL LINES MUST BE MEMORIZED.

  • We request your volunteer support during each production. There are a number of production committees to choose from, and you can do so via Sign-up Genius or during each production's Parent Meeting. We appreciate your contributions towards each production. It takes many hands to put on a show. 

  • The use of electronic devices are PROHIBITED during rehearsal hours as they are distractors. YES, actors may use their mobile phones to contact you for pick up. BUT, gaming, texting, uploading, etc. is not permitted during rehearsals.

TKTC productions are BULLY-FREE ZONES.

  • There is ABSOLUTELY NO name calling, or bullying permitted. If your actor has been teased or physically harmed in any way, alert TKTC immediately to intervene. We prefer a face-to-face conversation, but a note via e-mail or a phone call works too.

  • TKTC is a safe haven for kids of all ages and all walks of life. It is very important to us that every actor has a chance to succeed: One of the main goals of TKTC is to teach young actors how to believe in themselves and find their inner strengths.

  • Most importantly, please remind your actor to respect their fellow cast members. We are a family here.  Let’s use each production as a chance to continue to grow and develop even further as actors and people.
