PVTC Children’s Programs


At PVTC, we believe that theatre does remarkable things for each individual child. We are committed to helping every student realize their full creative potential. We celebrate diversity and offer classes to all children without exception.

Late Fee & Refund Policies for Year-Round Classes


1) Payment: You must pay for class at the time of registration. Students who have not paid by the first class will not be admitted into the    



2) Refunds: $25 of payment for class is non-refundable. There are no refunds after the first week of class. If you drop a class by the end of

    the first week, you may choose to receive a partial refund or a credit towards a future class. 


3) Late Registration: If you would like to register after the first day of a class, you may do so up until the second class meeting. After the

    second class meeting, we cannot add students since the script is being developed. We do not pro-rate classes that are added late.


4) We understand that some of our younger artists may be hesitant about trying a theatre class. If you have a young student and wish to

    test a class, please feel free to call the theatre office at (650) 530-2428 to make arrangements for a trial class before formally

    registering online.
