First Stage Players (FSP):

Performance Workshop (PW):

Each child enrolled in the workshop receives a speaking role in the play which rehearses every day, culminating in a fully mounted performance for family and friends on Friday evening. Tuition $230

Musical Theatre Revue (MTR):
Musical Theatre Revue is designed for students who wish to develop their musical performance and presentation skills as they learn about the history and world of musical theatre. Each session has a different theme that ties the music together. The class culminates in a musical revue for family and friends on Friday evening. Tuition $250

Students must be the minimum age of a class’s designated age range by the first day of class (i.e. – a young person must turn 6 on or before the first day of a Play Makers class for ages 6-8). We do not allow students to age up into any class for any reason.

Summer classes at LCT will operate on a staggered start and dismissal schedule. Please pay careful attention to your class’s designated start and end times. We ask that students arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before their class’s scheduled start time for drop off in the mornings. Families have a 15-minute window to pick up their young person at the end of each day. Should a young person be picked up after the 15-minute window, families will be charged the $15 daily fee for Extended Care.

Additionally, if you need to pick up your young person early from class, you must do so no less than 30 minutes prior to their class’s scheduled dismissal.

Every class has a mid-morning and afternoon snack break. Every class will also have a thirty-minute lunch break. Please pack snacks and lunches that do not contain peanuts/tree nuts and don’t require refrigeration or microwaving.

All classes will have a final sharing performance on the last day of class. Performances run approximately 25-30 minutes and are open to family members and friends. Friday sharing times remain the same all summer:

FSP (Ages 4-6): 3:00 PM
PM (Ages 6-8): 4:00 PM
PW (Ages 8-13): 5:00 PM
PW/MTR (Ages 10-16): 6:00 PM

Each year, LCT Theatre School designs a T-shirt to commemorate the summer. Cost for the shirt is $15. To order, you will see a Tuition + CS option when ordering. The plus (+ CS) is the shirt size. We offer:
  • Child Small (CS)
  • Child Medium (CM),
  • Adult Small (AS)
  • Adult Medium (AM)
  • Adult Large (AL)
  • Adult Extra Large (AXL)

If your young person needs a different size, please contact us.

The service is provided in the mornings from 8:00 – 9:15 AM and in the afternoons from 4:00 – 6:00 PM. Extended Care is available for a rate of $15 a day or $70 for the full week.
