Young People

How to Enrol – All Students

  1. Important! Read the Terms and Conditions of enrolment (see page 2 of enrolment form).
  2. Complete the Enrolment Form and email it to us (this also applies to continuing students to ensure we have all contact/medical/collector details up to date).
  3. Students are not permitted to leave the venue unless collected by a parent or authorised carer. Name(s) and contact detail(s) for all authorised carers MUST be listed on the enrolment form.
  4. We will invoice you for the fees due via email.
  5. Fees are due 7 days from invoice.

Enrolment forms must be completed, signed and given to the tutor before the student is accepted into class.
This is to ensure that we have medical, allergy information and parent/carer contact details on in case of emergency.

Coming to Class

What to bring

  • Comfortable clothes and closed-in flat shoes with soft soles (no thongs, sandals or heels) OR bare feet (socks alone are too slippery).

  • Bring a filled water bottle and make sure you have had a healthy snack before class if you are coming straight from school – this is really important as drama games are quite physical and if you are hungry and thirsty straight after school or work you will quickly run out of energy and feel tired (please no lollies or sugary/energy drinks).

  • Toilets are located behind the hall. Just let the tutor know if you need to be excused during class.

  • Students under 16 are not permitted to leave the venue unless accompanied by a parent or authorised carer. Name(s) and contact detail(s) for authorised carers MUST be listed on the enrolment form.
  • From time to time, the tutor may ask you to bring some props or costume items from home or ask you to do some research before the next class. Details will be sent home via email.

What NOT to bring Pets, smoking, drug and alcohol consumption are not permitted anywhere or any time within or around Pambula Town Hall.

Absences Please call, text or email the tutor if you know you (or your child) are not coming to class. This is good manners, particularly if you want to become part of the theatre ensemble, so that the other actors and the director do not waste valuable time waiting for you in rehearsals.

Parents and Other Family Members Parents are welcome to attend the first session of the year and any performances later in the year. If your child is finding it difficult to settle into class without you, please discuss your child’s needs with the tutor. If you are waiting for your child’s class to finish, please wait quietly at the back of the classroom or wait in the Supper Room. We cannot provide supervision for children other than those enrolled as students – siblings must not be left with a student without carer/parental supervision. StageFlight also offers separate classes for adults if you are interested.

Warmups Each class begins with warmup exercises to prepare your voice, body and mind for the main class activities. It’s important that you arrive ready to jump straight in, so make sure you’ve had your snack/drink, been to the toilet, washed hands etc before class starts.

Illness/Injury Please do not come to class if you are sick or injured. Many of our activities involve physical movement and you risk making your illness/injury worse or passing on your illness. Please email or text the tutor on 0438 957160 if you can’t come to class or you will be marked “absent without explanation”. Absences that are explained before class will not affect your attendance record.

Attendance Certificate Your tutor keeps a record of class attendance. Students who attend an average of at least 7 classes per term, will receive an Attendance Certificate from StageFlight at the end of Term 4.

References/Recommendations If you are auditioning for roles at theatre companies or films, we are happy to provide a reference based on your participation in class activities and performances. A solid attendance record at drama school will be one of the factors that can work in your favour. We are sometimes asked for recommendations for young actors for theatre/TV/film work and will contact parents of young actors who we think might best be suited to roles.
