FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WILL PARTICIPANTS NEED TO AUDITION TO BE IN ONE OF YOUR PROGRAMS?
If you've registered, you're guaranteed a spot in our cast! Auditions are only to determine where everyone is placed. But don't worry, every role matters, and everyone will have their moment to shine. Auditions for our summer programs will take place on the first day of each session, with participants receiving the required materials ahead of time. The first portion of our first day will also be spent workshopping and preparing for those auditions.
WHEN ARE THE PERFORMANCES? DO I NEED TO BUY TICKETS?
For our summer programs, there will be a single live performance based on current CDC guidelines and recommendations. The performance will take place in the evening on the last Friday of each session. Each child will receive one family ticket, and the rest will be on sale online following the start of each session. Performances will also be recorded. For programs during the school year, the date and time of our Friday or Saturday performance will be communicated ahead of time.
WHAT TYPE OF TRAINING DO YOUR STAFF RECEIVE?
Our staff have received training in a wide range of creative fields, from dance, to playwriting, education, and more. For more information on their backgrounds, please refer to their staff bios. ON! Theater employee's are required to submit a LIVE-Scan in accordance to school district policy, to reveal all criminal history. ON! Theater employees are all trained with the various prerequisites of the California Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act that is required for all school personnel. All of our core staff are also certified in CPR and First Aid.
ARE YOUR PARTICIPANTS SEPARATED BY GRADE OR AGE DURING THE DAY?
We've found it to be incredibly beneficial, both for the directors and the cast members, to have participants of all ages working together on a production. It gives the older kids a sense of leadership and responsibility, while the younger ones look up to them. They have so much to learn from each other.
WHAT SHOULD I SEND MY CHILD TO CAMP/REHEARSAL WITH?
A snack, lunch, water bottle, scripts...and their show faces, of course! Additional items (such as undershirts or dance shoes) may be requested prior to dress rehearsals. For our after school programs, please make sure your child has an extra snack, water, and their script!
COVID SAFETY AT ON! THEATER
CAN MY CHILD USE THEIR PHONE DURING THE DAY?
ON! Theater is following the most current guidance health screening protocols as recommended by the CDC and the LA County Department of Public Health, including masks, hand hygiene, and proof of vaccination/negative Covid tests for our in-person audiences. All instructors are fully vaccinated. For summer and after school programs, no outside visitors will be allowed in the building space during rehearsal.
It's important that our cast members stay present and engaged during the day. For our summer programs, your child may only use their phone after the camp day ends. If for any reason they need to call home during the day, an instructor will do so using their own phone.
Payments must be received in order for your child to attend our programs. Please reach out if you have any additional questions.
Currently, our program ends at 4pm and begins at 9am. However, you may drop your child off as early as 8:30am each morning.
WHAT IS YOUR SPACE LIKE?
Our summer program space at Harmony Toluca Lake consists of multiple, spacious rehearsal rooms, as well as a safe outdoor space for lunch and breaks.
