Attendance Policy:

All absences and known conflicts must be given to PAA by an adult for students 18 or under.

  • For conflicts that are not emergencies email producer@paacolorado.org
  • In the case of emergencies and last minute illnesses call 303-900-7041 X0.

 

Spring and Fall Production Audition and Attendance Protocol

  • Placement auditions are required for most PAA productions. The length of time required to stay at the audition varies by program. Video auditions are discouraged and allowed if requested in advance to producer@paacolorado.org. Video auditions do not afford students the same level of opportunity as a live audition and should be considered a last resort option. 

  • All known conflicts must be written on the Conflict Sheet provided to each student at auditions. If there are several rehearsal conflicts, the result may impact the student’s casting and/or the full participation in the production.
  • In the case of emergencies and last minute illnesses please call 303-900-7041 x 0 to leave a message or speak with the producer. 
  • Because of the collaborative nature of the productions, absences are highly discouraged. If there are too many absences or late arrivals, PAA in addition to the artistic team may reassign role/s to support the integrity of the production and the preparation process for the entire cast. 
  • Attendance during Tech Week and at Performances is required.  
  • Participation during strike (Organizing props and costumes, clearing set pieces after the last performance) is required unless otherwise arranged or communicated from the team PAA leaders. 

 

Class Attendance Protocol

  • Because of the collaborative nature of the classes, absences are highly discouraged. If there are more than 2 absences or late arrivals, the instructor may reassign the role the student had for the shareformance to support the integrity of the preparation process for the entire class. The Shareformance is a time of sharing and performing for friends and family on the final day of classes and encompasses many if not all of the learning each student experienced throughout the program.   
  • Absences are reported to PAA’s Producer at producer@paacolorado.org.  Please allow one week notice prior to a student being absent from class. In the case of emergencies or last minute illnesses, please call 303-900-7041 X0 to speak to or leave a message for PAA’s Producer.

 

Fall 2021 Show/Class Schedule Conflict Credit
Based on years of experience, students who take classes in addition to participating in shows demonstrate the most growth and improvement over time.  However, a scheduling conflict exists between classes and shows during the Fall 2021 semester.  In order to remedy this situation, a monetary credit in your Sawyer account will be issued.   The schedule conflicts occur during the stated weeks below:

  • Students enrolled in Descendants will not be able to attend classes during the week of November 15, 2021.
  • Students enrolled in The Addams Family will not be able to attend classes during the week of November 8, 2021.
  • Students enrolled in Puffs will not be able to attend classes the week of October 25, 2021.

A $15 credit will be issued to the student’s Sawyer account for each day of class they will miss due to enrollment in a Fall 2021 show.  If you have any questions regarding your credit in Sawyer, please contact Taletha Pogge, Financial and Operations Manager at Taletha@paacolorado.org

 

 

Summer Camp Audition and Attendance Protocol 

  • Placement auditions are required for most PAA camps. The length of time required to stay at the audition varies by program.

Early Elementary (Pre-K through 2nd Grade) camps DO NOT have auditions.
  • All known conflicts must be written on the Conflict Sheet provided to each student at auditions. If there are several rehearsal conflicts, the result may impact the student’s casting and/or the full participation in the production.
  • Full participation during PAA’s Early Elementary Camps is critical to the student’s success.  The Shareformance is a time of sharing and performing for friends and family on the final day of camp and encompasses many if not all of the learning each student experienced throughout the week.   
  • In the case of emergencies or last minute illnesses please call 303-900-7041 x 0 to leave a message or speak with the producer. 
  • Because of the collaborative nature of the camps, absences are highly discouraged. If there are too many absences or late arrivals, PAA in addition to the artistic team may reassign role/s to support the integrity of the production and the preparation process for the entire cast.
