REGISTRATION PROCESSING FEE: add $10 per child.
Waived for Summer 2020!

TO REGISTER:
By mail or email – use form on website. Copy and Paste into an email, or Save and Email as an attachment, or send via regular mail – see addresses at top of form. We will email confirmation, or call you if your selected class is full. Class space is very competitive and sending a registration does not necessarily guarantee a space. Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, and space will not be reserved until registration form is received, and payment is received and processed. Make sure your computer allows mail from EssexYouthTheater@comcast.net.

ONLINE CLASS MATERIALS:
Students will get the scripts and music emailed to them on the first day of each show. Please print out the script and have a method of playing an mp3 music track for classes and the recital.

ONLINE RECITALS:
Essex Youth Theater will email a free recording of your child’s Summer 2020 online performance to parents the afternoon of or the day after the show. Parents and family are also invited to be in the online “audience” as well as record it themselves if they wish. All recordings are for family use only. Posting on social media is a violation of copyright and privacy laws.

TUITION:
By check, Visa or MasterCard. We will not process your check or credit card unless you get a space. Confirmation is via email. Withdrawals must follow our Refund Policy. $30 fee for bounced checks. Proof of payment may be required to enter first class

REFUND POLICY:
Since Essex Youth Theater provides custom-written scripts that guarantee equal roles for all students and limits class size, there are no “extra” roles or “ensemble” parts. Every student gets a starring role. Therefore, there is a Holding Fee to hold your child’s space, which increases in a tiered manner as we approach the first day of class.

Withdrawals must be in writing (email okay). Withdrawals 3 weeks before the class’ start date: 80% refund (20% Holding Fee); Withdrawals 2 weeks before the class’ start date: 50% refund (50% Holding Fee). No refund 1 week before class’ start date. Any refunds sent will be in the original method of payment. You may not use your credit card's “Dispute-A-Payment” or chargeback process for withdrawals. Refund Policy is firm with no exceptions - please do not ask.

REFUNDS FOR SUMMER 2020 IN-PERSON CLASSES::
The price of our online Theater Camp has been reduced to $250 per week. If you have already sent tuition for the in-person Camp and are transferring to an online class, there are two ways to manage your already purchased tuition:
#1 transferring the residual amount towards a tax-deductible donation to Essex Youth Theater.
#2 receiving a residual amount refund. Call or email us to make a donation, otherwise we will refund you. And thank you!

CLASS SWITCHING:
In some instances, scheduling conflicts can be remedied by switching your child's class within the same semester. We will do everything we can to accommodate you, but if other classes are full you will be committed to your original choice.

CLASS CANCELLATION:
It’s never happened yet, but should a previously-scheduled class ever need to be cancelled by EYT, all tuition will be promptly refunded to you in full.

COMPOSITION OF CLASS:
Summer Theater Day Camp classes are all multi-age. Composition of each class is random and EYT cannot make any guarantees regarding the ages or gender of the students in each class.

MEDICAL CONDITIONS:
If your child has any medical or behavioral condition you must indicate it on the Registration Form. Subsequent discovery of a behavioral or medical condition that parent has failed to disclose will be grounds for immediate dismissal from the program with no refund.

RELEASE OF LIABILITY:
As the legal parent or guardian, you release, absolve, indemnify and hold harmless Essex Youth Theater (EYT), its owners and operators, from any and all liability, claims, demands, and causes of action whatsoever, arising out of or related to any loss, damage, or injury, including death, that may be sustained by the participant while in or upon the premises or any premises under the control and supervision of EYT. For anyone attending the school, you agree and disclose that you are carrying your own medical insurance and assume all risks and hazards incidental to the conduct of EYT activities.

MEDIA RELEASE:
I understand that EYT occasionally uses group photos of students in local newspapers and on its website and social media for school-related publicity. EYT will never use a student’s full name online. Some names may be mentioned in local newspapers for publicity purposes.

CLASS ETIQUETTE:
Essex Youth Theater reserves the right to deny enrollment based on a student's past behavior. Inappropriate or disruptive conduct will be grounds for dismissal from the program with no refund.

 


While we make every effort, EYT’s calendar cannot always coincide with all school closings and/or all religious observances. Please consider this when choosing your child’s class day.
