    Admission to all programs of KingDom Theatre is on the audition basis. Accepted students receive a formal invitation from the Artistic Director to register for the season. KingDom Theatre’s Artistic Committee reserves the right to make decisions regarding student’s admission and transition from one level of the program to another. Registration for the season implies that the student is signed for the program that runs from September to June. Registration is considered active only after the student's payment has been processed AND all registration documents are signed by parents/ guardians. DUE dates: payments must be made before or on the 1st date of each month. Fees must be paid in full by the due dates or students will not be permitted in class. Late payments may result in loss of a spot in the class. The studio will administer a $25 charge to all late payments and postponed/held tuition payments for whatever reason. Payments not submitted by studio closing on the due date are considered late. In case of failure of payment, student's registration becomes inactive and consequently canceled for the season. KingDom Theatre reserves the right to refuse and/or cancel a student's registration and enrollment at any time due to excessive lateness and/or absence, disruptive behavior, and/or non-payment of tuition or other charges due.
