FALL WORKSHOP PRODUCTION: Grades 3-8

2020 Fall Workshop  
Updated with new, Covid-19 Safety Protocol

Matilda has astonishing wit, intelligence... and special powers! She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace!

SCHEDULE
Program runs early-September to mid-October. Each Workshop group rehearses once a week with the exception of a couple weeks when groups will have two sessions. Scroll down to view each group's schedule!

NEW COVID-19 SAFETY MEASURES
Rather than running our workshop sessions with 24 kids, each session will be broken up into two smaller casts with no more than 14 children and 3 adults (the director, assistant director, and counselor). The small cast size will allow each cast to rehearse and perform in a socially distant way, with children being kept six feet away from one another.  This also gives each performer more individualized instruction, and plenty of production involvement and features.

Our updated Workshop schedule allows all Elmsford groups to rehearse outdoors (weather permitting). If the weather requires children to be inside, each cast will have their own entrance and exit to the building and will be in a dedicated space in the rehearsal studio. Casts will be kept separated from one another and will not mingle. 

Group G in Rye, at the Wainwright House, will rehearse entirely outdoors. A large tent (overlooking the water) will allow rehearsals to be held outdoors rain or shine. Students will go inside (with a mask) only to use the bathroom. 

All participants are required to bring a mask every day. Masks will be worn while indoors or if children are unable to socially distance outside.

If a child falls ill, we ask parents to inform staff and share their child's symptoms. If a child presents with symptoms that may be COVID-19, we will inform the families in that child's cast that a child has presented with possible symptoms. We may also suspend the session or move to virtual rehearsals until the symptomatic child has been tested.


TUITION*
$640 - Subsidized tuition
$1,066.67 - Actual cost

Did you know Random Farms is a non-profit and tuition only covers 60% of the cost of putting a child through the program?  
 
Our subsidized tuition prices make participating affordable to a more diverse community. 
 
Please consider paying the actual cost, and everything over the subsidized tuition amount will be a tax-deductible donation! This will help support our outreach efforts, which include providing scholarships, discounted tickets, and free performances to those in need.
 
*Each registrant is also responsible for a $10 processing fee at the time of registration.

HOW TO REGISTER
Enrollment in this program is first-come, first-served. 

REFUND POLICY 
Covid-19 Accommodations:
Register with peace of mind! Program credits and refunds will be available for the full value of the subsidized tuition if Random Farms is unable to run a group. Program credits and refunds will also be available for the partial value of subsidized tuition if the program can only run virtually for part or all of the session. 

SCHOLARSHIPS
A limited number of financial aid packages are available. Please click here for info and application.

COSTUMES
Traditional costumes for our final performance will not allow for appropriate social distancing, due to the physical closeness with adult staff required for fittings and getting into and out of them. Instead, each child will receive a complimentary show t-shirt. They will wear that, along with 'character specific' headpieces and accessories (that will not be shared and that can be put on by the child without assistance) for our final dress rehearsal and performance.
