We believe it is essential to push the artistic boundaries of both artisans and audience!! Design teams brainstorm the most inventive creative solutions available (within budget and resource constraints) striving to create the most engaging production possible. Every production allows you to get lost in the stories, characters and worlds created onstage. So join us for an hour or two during this our 71st season. Engage your willing suspension of disbelief - the magic does run out a midnight, dig yourself out of a hole, or travel to the depths of the deepest seas. We hope you'll carry the stories with you as you leave the theatre.  Ask more questions. Imagine what might have happened "if only!" Laugh louder,  enjoy each moment and remember to grab your tickets for the next show!

Theatre School FAQ

What is LCT's Theatre School?
The mission of Lexington Children's Theatre's Education Department is to provide students of all ages with the means to actively explore the beauty, diversity, complexity and challenges of the world around them through the dramatic process. We strive for our students to develop their own unique creative voice, their imagination and their understanding of drama and its role in society.
Theatre school classes are offered in four seasonal quarters. Each quarter offers a variety of classes designed to give our students a rewarding experience while still targeting and meeting their needs physically, mentally and creatively. We offer classes for young people ages 4 to 18, with a purpose of producing a valuable educational and creative experience for the young artist.


What if my child has already taken
several of your classes?
Learning to act is a skill that must be developed over time and with scores of hours dedicated to practice.  Please read our article entitled Training the Young Actor to find out more about providing your child the best drama education possible.

How will I receive confirmation?
Once your registration is received, we send a confirmation letter one week before the class is scheduled to begin. This letter confirms dates and times, location and instructor, as well as any specific instructions for the class.

How many students are in each class? 
Each class has a minimum and maximum number of students. Minimum enrollment is generally five students. LCT reserves the right to cancel any class with insufficient enrollment. The maximum number of students varies with each class, depending on the age range and type of program.

What if I need to cancel my registration? 
A $15 non-refundable registration fee is included in the tuition. If student cancels more than two weeks before class begins, student will receive a full refund, less the $15 registration fee. If student cancels less than two weeks prior but before class begins, student will receive full credit towards another theatre school class during that fiscal year. If student cancels after class begins, a credit will be issued for 70% of the tuition. After the second class, no adjustments will be made. If LCT cancels the class for any reason, the student will receive a full refund.

Is financial aid available for LCT classes? 
Financial aid is available for all classes and is awarded based solely on financial need. Generally, qualified applicants receive a 25% or 50% waiver of the tuition fee. Applications must be submitted two weeks before a class begins. Call Jeremy Kisling @ 254-4546 x226 to request an application.

What are LCT's attendance policies?
Students should be brought inside by a parent or guardian on the first day. We invited the parents to stay for the first ten minutes of the class to meet the teacher and ask questions. After the first day students can meet the teacher in the lobby fifteen minutes before class starts. 
When class is over the group is lead downstairs to the Lobby. A parent or guardian should come inside to meet their child. If other arrangements are needed, please send a note authorizing LCT to release your child. 
If a child is left in our care for more than ten minutes a late fee will be charged for every ten minutes until the child is collected. 

Where do I park when bringing my child to LCT? 
We have a pick-up/drop-off area where you may stand for a brief period of time. Parking is available at the Victorian Square Garage, St. Peter & Paul church lot (Saunier) city lots (Short St, Mill St) meters (Short St, Algonquin, Main St) and residential areas (such as 2nd St.)

What are LCT'S business hours?
LCT's business hours are 9:00-6:00 Monday-Friday and 9:00-12:00 on Saturdays when classes are in session. If your class falls outside of these hours, the Lobby doors will be locked. If student is more than 10 minutes late or 15 minutes early for class, he/she may not be able to get into the building.

What else do I need to know? 
A Student's Information Form must be filled out and turned in the first day. We keep a copy on file for one year, so returning students will only need to verify the information is correct.
