She confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before– keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

FAQ

What time should I arrive?

Students may arrive up to ten minutes early for their class.

What if a student needs to miss a class?

That's okay! We know "life" happens. Please note, refunds cannot be made for missed classes.

May parents sit in and watch the class?

In order to help students let go of their inhibitions and develop a strong stage presence, we ask parents not to stay and watch their child in class, as it is often disruptive to the students.

What time should I pick up my child?

Classes are one-hour and your student's class end time will be listed in your confirmation email. A late penalty of $25 per each extra 10 minutes after the class end time will be imposed.

Will there be a performance at the end of classes?

All class descriptions have information about a performance. Some classes perform at the Final Showcase, others have an informal final class performance, and others do not have a performance at all. If a performance is planned, it is intended to be very informal and almost always done without lights, sets, props or costumes.

POLICIES

Refunds

Any requests for changes or refunds must be made in writing at least one week prior to your first class or camp. A full refund will be issued minus a $5 processing fee. No refunds after this point, only credit toward tuition of a future class, camp or workshop within a year of the cancellation. No exceptions for injury or illness.

Cancellation of Class

If your class or workshop is canceled, you will have the choice of a full refund (no processing fee charge) or a credit toward a future class or workshop.

Behavior: In order to ensure students derive maximum benefit and enjoyment from the classroom experience, students who become disruptive or disrespectful will be removed from class with no refund of tuition.
