We appreciate your cooperation with CAST policies to make sure things run smoothly for everyone!
All tuition amounts listed on the website, with the exception of the summer intensive camp, are monthly tuition fees. To register for a class, you should pay for the first month’s tuition through the shopping cart. Any payment that is not honored by a financial institution will result in a $10 late fee. Any returned check will result in a $25 service charge. You may also pay the total tuition in full at time of registration by adding multiple months to your shopping cart.
A refund of tuition is granted ONLY if a program session is cancelled. No reduction in fees is given for late arrival, early departure, vacations, special events, short-term illness or expulsion for disciplinary reasons. Cancellation requests must be submitted via email to email@example.com at least a week prior to the first day of class to be considered for a credit or a refund. The registration fee is nonrefundable.
If a student decides not to continue with a class, a fee of 50% of the tuition for the months that are not completed will be assessed. This is due to the fees and administration costs that CAST must commit when a student enrolls in a class but then does not complete the class.
It is your responsibility to make sure the correct email address and phone number is on file with CAST. It is also your responsibility to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your contact list to keep emails from going to SPAM. We will send the majority of our communications through email.
Costumes for major productions are the responsibility of the student and the production, but additional and specific information will be given regarding the nature of these costumes throughout the course of the production. Students are expected to dress appropriately for classes and rehearsals. Actors should arrive in comfortable clothing that they can move in without exposing themselves. Skirts and dresses without shorts beneath and opened toed shoes will not be permitted.

The undersigned gives permission to CAST and its owners and operators to seek medical treatment for the participant in the event they are not able to reach a parent or guardian. I hereby declare any physical/mental problems, restrictions, or condition and/or declare the participant to be in good physical and mental health.

Missing technical/dress rehearsals will not be permitted and will result in the student being pulled from the production or recital.

- Disruptive or dangerous behavior by students or their parents.
