DYT CODE OF CONDUCT
Our Code of Conduct is a representation of our core values and an outline of expected behaviour and attitude for all members of our Theatre Family.
Demonstrate courtesy to others. Use appropriate language and behaviour at all times.
Behave in a positive and responsible manner. Our intention is not only to set an expectation of professional and respectful behavior at DYT but to instill our students with an expectation of being ambassadors in the community at large. We hope that students experience a safe and accepting environment at DYT and take that into their lives outside of our organization.
Attend regularly with requested permission for absences. Attendance and participation are an essential part of the educational process. Regular attendance is necessary for student success. All students are expected to be present and prompt. Rehearsal attendance is the responsibility of both parents and students. Parents will be contacted if a pattern of late arrivals is noted.
Be prepared for rehearsals and shows. Bring appropriate materials, be ready to work and expect to be challenged.
Demonstrate respect for yourself and others. Never intentionally harm another performer and refrain from inappropriate physical contact. If you or someone you know is being bullied either tell them to stop, remove yourself from the physical environment immediately and or ask for help. Always report any signs of abuse, violence, bullying or harassment to an adult in charge or your parents. Parents please know that we want to know if your student is ever uncomfortable at DYT for any reason.
Acknowledge your contribution to the success of the show. Take your part in the show seriously. Do not become a distraction for others. Give every other performer, crew, creative team and production team member the opportunity to maximize their potential. Encourage your DYT peers, never tear them down.
Cooperate with others. This includes peers, crew members, directors, administrators, volunteers, parents and visitors. Be polite and respectful.
Dress appropriately. Be ready to move at rehearsal and do not come wearing clothing that look like pajamas. If you wear clothes that look like you are ready for bed, you will work like you are ready for bed. No giant sweatshirts please!
Dressing room conduct.
1. Boys and Girls dressing rooms are separate. Boys will not be allowed in the girl’s dressing rooms and vice versa.
2. No music will be allowed in dressing rooms. If you want to listen to music you can do so with earphones/earbuds.
3. Please dress appropriately while in the hallways backstage. We realize that there are unavoidable quick changes and that “the theatre” presents circumstances where what is normally appropriate gives way to necessity. In spite of this please dress and behave appropriately.
4. Please refrain from inappropriate language and any behavior that will discourage your fellow performers. Sexually explicit behavior and/or language will not be tolerated.
5. DYT takes pride in bringing together students between the ages of 9-21. We expect that our older students will act as positive examples to our younger performers and to look out for them.
Frozen JR. is based on the 2018 Broadway musical, and brings Elsa, Anna, and the magical land of Arendelle to life, onstage. The show features all of the memorable songs from the animated film, with music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, plus five new songs written for the Broadway production.
The Music Man jr.
Based on Meredith Willson's six-time-Tony-Award-winning musical comedy, The Music Man JR. features some of musical theatre’s most iconic songs and a story filled with wit, warmth and good old-fashioned romance. The Music Man JR. is family entertainment at its best — a bold, brassy show that will have the whole town atwitter!
