Where do you perform? We perform in different venues. For the past few years we have presented our Main Stage Musical on the stage of the Phoenixville Area Middle School. We also offer Summer Workshops at Phoenixville Area Middle School, Arcola Intermediate School and the Colonial Theatre. Finally we offer a Holiday Revue at the Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville and Saturday morning acting classes from September - May.
How much are your tickets? Ticket prices vary depending on the scope of the show and the royalty costs. We aim to provide affordable entertainment for the family. We consider our ticket prices to be a great value –seeing live musical performances, often with live orchestra, and full costumes in a wonderful venue.
What age range are your shows for? Most shows are appropriate for ages 5 and up. If a show is geared to an older audience, we will state that on the ticket website. We do understand that people often want to bring toddlers or babies to our shows. Parents who bring extremely young children to live shows should sit on an aisle so they can easily escort the young child out to the lobby if he or she gets upset or starts crying. We request this so other audience members can enjoy the performance and more importantly so our young performers do not get distracted by noise in the house.
Why do I need to purchase tickets if I paid tuition for my child? Producing a live performance has many “unseen” costs. Your tuition covers the stipend for our director and teacher staff. Workshop performances also incur costs like costumes, props, rent, and royalty and licensing, which can be hundreds of dollars or more.
Some workshops do include ticket vouchers with a paid tuition.
My child is just a year younger than the age range for your workshop. Can she sign up anyway? Our workshop directors have worked with children of all ages for many years. They design their workshops for a particular age range; often a too-young participant will not enjoy the experience or will require more of the teacher’s time than is allotted. Therefore we must adhere to the advertised age range.
Why do you call them “workshops’ instead of “camp”? Our summer day programs are specifically designed to teach young performers all aspects of musical theatre: singing, dancing, blocking, acting, plus backstage and technical skills. We produce a high-quality performance and the students learn multiple skills. While our workshops are also a lot of fun, we do not feel that the term “camp” is accurate, as we do a lot more than just occupy or entertain your child for a few hours. They receive intensive instruction from our experienced teachers and interns.
