All registered children will be required to attend workshops held at Island Kung Fu on June 24th 11:00-1:00 for 6-8 year olds and 2:00-6:00 for 9-19 year olds and June 25th from 9:00-11:00am for 6-8 year olds and 12:00-4:00 9-19 year olds to be considered for enrolment in Chalkboard Theatre. This will include song, dance and short choreography. This is not an audition.

We will evaluate not solely on talent but more importantly on behaviour, participation, willingness to learn and take direction. This will give our production team an opportunity to meet everyone and see their individual imagination, creativity and self expression.

For children to be considered for enrolment parents need to attend the last hour of boot camp, which will include an information session for parents.  Parents also need to commit to all the rehearsal dates and most importantly the performance dates and to the volunteer policy. Also the $50 deposit is non-refundable and pays for the mandatory boot camp participation. A $50 charge for boot camp is on top of the  regular fees.

An email with workshop details will be sent once we receive registration. Approximately 75 Children will be selected for the 2018 Production of Peter Pan.

Any questions regarding this years process can be sent to chalkboardregistrar@outlook.com
