Depending on school guidelines, our performances will take place either inside the school (gym) or on an outdoor stage (weather permitting).

We do not offer payment plans or refunds.  Payments will not be accepted after Jan. 20.  After Jan. 20, any students who have not been paid for will not be permitted to continue with the program.  Being that we need to purchase licenses and materials for costumes, props and scenery, our show t-shirts, and cover other expenses early in our show season, we do not offer refunds. If for some reason we are unable to perform as scheduled, PSBcreative will arrange other performance opportunities.

MANDATORY PRACTICES:  Friday, March 18 in the evening & Saturday, March 19 in the afternoon and evening.  Performers must attend both of these practice.  DO NOT REGISTER for this program if you foresee scheduling conflicts with other activities (family event, dancing, gymnastics, other athletics, etc.).  Students who do not attend these mandatory practices will not be permitted to perform in the shows.  We will not have more specific times until approx. 2 weeks prior.

STUDENT RESPONSIBILITES:  PSBcreative has a 3-Strike Policy. Any Kincaid teacher or staff member may inform PSBcreative that a participating student may deserve a strike. If a student receives 3 strikes at any time during our show season, he/she will no longer be allowed to continue in our program. If your child receives a strike, you will be sent a notification sheet to sign and return the following school day.  Should a student be dismissed from our program, the participation fee will not be refunded.  A strike may be earned when a student does not: 

  • Adhere to school rules & consistently exhibits positive character traits.  

  • Respect all teachers, staff, volunteers, and students.  

  • Complete class and homework on time & maintain positive grades.  

  • Attend each rehearsal and performance as assigned. 

  • Learn new songs and skills at rehearsal and commit them to memory by consistently practicing at home.  

MAKE-UP/HAIR:  Because we use stage lighting, basic make-up and hair will be required for all boys and girls and must be applied at home before for the shows. We will send home basic directions. Students performing certain characters will need to have their make-up and hair applied at school before shows. We will have a schedule for this.  More details to come.
CLOTHING/COSTUMES:  Students should wear comfortable clothing to all practices. For performances, items such as proper shoes, under shirts and shorts must be supplied from home.  Costumes (beyond typical base clothing) will be provided by PSBcreative.  All costume pieces must be returned to PSBcreative.
