Class Advice 

8th Graders

You may notice that our 8th graders have a choice of two courses. Ultimately, as the classes increase in age, the responsibilities increase and the material may get more difficult. Please know that there is no wrong answer, and our staff will have plenty of time with your students, so no one is left to fall through the cracks!


If your 8th-grader is hoping to play a principal role and have more responsibility in a class of students younger than them, then staying in our 4-8th grade range would be best. This show will be shorter in length, allowing for more time overall to work on the performance. Your child may also choose this class if they have friends in this age group.


If your 8th-grader is looking to be alongside more advanced students and accepts the challenge of a full-length production in a short amount of time, then entering our 8-12th grade range would be best. In full disclosure, this may involve taking on an ensemble role, which will still be incredibly involved. 

Please talk to your student prior to making this decision to ensure that they understand what they are signing up for.
