By the time our kids reach middle school we have figured out that anything they do will require some effort from us, and that is no different for a Panther Playhouse production. Parents must request an exception to any of the following requirements if you are unable to meet them for whatever reason. This list applies to parents of both actors and crew.

Parent Responsibilities

  • Turn in completed participation form for student on time.
  • Attend the parent meeting one week prior to auditions.
  • Make any required payments.
    We will never turn away a student for financial reasons. Please reach out to director for scholarship information.
  • Report all potential student rehearsal conflicts.
    We can work around conflicts, but note that significant conflicts can impact casting decisions.
  • Set realistic casting expectations for actors and themselves.
    Every role will get an opportunity to shine.
  • Pick you your student from rehearsal on time and verify their student signed out on sign-in sheet.
    Contact your student or adult at rehearsal if you will be late due to traffic or other reasons.
  • Actors must attend every "required" rehearsal.
  • Actors and crew must take part in every performance. No exceptions.
  • Parent must chaperone two rehearsals for each student involved.
  • All parent chaperones must be a LWSD approved volunteer.
  • Parent must participate in one parent committee for each student involved.
    There are options that can accommodate various working schedules.
