BEHIND THE CURTAIN: AFTER-SCHOOL CLASSES

CTL is excited to launch our After-School classes for this Spring! We are inviting all of our local performers, students and interested kids of all ages ‘behind the curtain’ and into our safe learning space to develop the skills to help them become rock star performers! Whether you are brand new to CTL’s classes and summer camps or the stage performer veteran we have something for everyone!

As of 1/10 – all students and teachers will be MASKED the entire time in the building as part of CTL’s COVID-19 mandates following state and federal guidelines.

Please note that all classes will participate in a Final Performance for friends and family members on

Saturday, April 23rd at noon (Tickets for event will go on sale April 1st!)

All Classes are $150 – scholarship and payment plan information can be attained by emailing our Director of Educational Programming, Brandy Aguirre at baguirre@CTLshows.com

Financial Aid Opportunities

CTL is a place for everyone. If interested in being considered for a scholarship to help offset the cost of classes, please fill out the Scholarship Request Form found HERE! Financial aid, in the form of tuition assistance grants, is awarded to deserving students to partially off-set the costs of attending. Financial Aid is available on a limited basis; therefore, applicants must demonstrate a clear financial need and a strong desire to participate in the after-school program.  The questions asked in this application are designed to help the CTL staff understand the family situation and financial position, and to make certain that assistance is awarded to students whose need is greatest.  The information you provide in this application is considered strictly confidential. All decisions regarding financial assistance are made by the Educational Coordinator and CTL Executive staff.

 

While reasonable considerations will be made to accommodate the needs of each student. Community Theatre League reserves the right to reconsider enrollment or send a student home should issues require support beyond the capabilities of the CAST staff.
