Class info – The Playsical Players: For Actors & Singers in Grades 3-5

Every Playsical session includes fun and laughter, and so much more! We start each class with a snack. We spend most of our class time learning and rehearsing the musical play that we’ll present at the end of the session.

The fee also includes the opportunity for your child to rehearse with director Kristin Erickson personally up to twice per week. We offer these 20-minute sessions for no extra fee. Just contact us to set up a time.

Your child will be given a script which they are responsible for and must bring to class each day. There’s a $10 replacement fee for a lost script.

Playsical generally provides costumes for the performance. Use of the costumes is included in the price -- there's no extra charge to you.

We may ask your child to provide some basic costuming. In case we have any such needs -- for example, "wear black pants and a white shirt" -- we'll let you know before the show.

Each Playsical session culminates in an amazing musical performance! 

Performances are held on the final class day of the session.

On performance day, students report to Playsical class right after school, as usual. During that final session, the Playsical Players have their dress rehearsal and get into costume and makeup for the big show!

The performance begins at 4:45.
