Youtheatre Club Point System
We will have an end of the year celebration for those that have received a minimum of 20 points during the 2019-2020 Club Year. Here is how you are able to earn points:
- 1 point – For each meeting you attend
- 1 point – For being present the entire meeting
- 2 points – For any “theatre” event/production you go see and have your ticket signed and turned in. No limit.
Youtheatre Club Attendance Policy
I understand that in order to keep good standing as a member of the Youtheatre Club, I must attend all scheduled Youtheatre Club meetings. Please note:
- Excused Absences: Absences may be excused if a note from a parent is submitted or in the event of sickness or family emergency. Only two excused absences will be accepted.
- Unexcused Absences: Unexcused absences will not be tolerated. Each student will only be allowed one unexcused absence. More than one unexcused absence will result in an automatic termination from the club and no refunds will be given.
*If a student misses club due to an excused absence, points can be made up by attending a theatre event/production you go see and have your ticket/program signed and turned in.
