Parents Welcome

The Kids Theater Company programs are friendly, encouraging, and offer safe, expert guidance. We anticipate that every child can shine and will discover breakthroughs in the limelight. When your child joins a TKTC cast, each production becomes a unique "family road trip" where even you, are along for a six-week adventure.
“We are so grateful to Kyle and TKTC. My girls are currently in their third show and have loved every minute. This is the best kid’s theatre program we could find, from L.A. to OC. We talked to other parents and kids about the productions, and comments came back 100% positive. Kyle Becker and his team really teach the kids improv and theatre techniques. The kids involved are wonderful and kind to each other." — Erik F. 
Show Prep Guidelines. Here are some helpful guidelines to make the journey a terrific experience:

  • Make sure that your actor brings his or her SCRIPT and a PENCIL or 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… Only one bound script will be distributed per cast member.

  • Rehearsals tend to go 2½ to 3 hours. It’s a good idea to send your actor or actress with snacks/drinks to re-energize his/herself during our break times.

  • It’s true. Taking 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. Please note that missing rehearsals IMPACTS the rest
    of our cast and crew.

  • Encourage your actor to review his or her scenes prior to rehearsal. The more practice with lines, then the more familiar and comfortable s/he’ll be during rehearsal, and the more s/he’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 such as iPhones, Blackberries, iPads, iPods, DSs, and similar items, IS PROHIBITED during rehearsal hours as they are distractors. YES, actors may use their mobile
    phones to contact you for pick up. BUT, gaming, texting, tweeting, 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 sooo important to us that every actor has a chance to succeed: “You have to believe it before you can be it!”  And 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. Even though certain roles may be double cast, actors are not in competition with one another. Being double cast simply means each actor takes an equal part of the whole. We are a family here. Taking part in a TKTC show isn’t about being featured as a single actor, but about a group of actors sharing an experience together. Let’s use each production as a chance to continue to
    grow and develop even further as actors and people.
