SPRING WORKSHOP PRODUCTION: Grades 3-5, 5-8 or 3-8

The delicious adventures experienced by Charlie Bucket on his visit to Willy Wonka's mysterious chocolate factory light up the stage in this captivating adaptation of Roald Dahl's fantastical tale. Willy Wonka KIDS follows enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whomever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats, but the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka's rules in the factory – or suffer the consequences.

TUITION*
$615 - Subsidized tuition
$1,025 - 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. We ask families to choose the tuition tier they can afford on good faith; no application for the subsidized tuition is required.
 
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.
 
While Random Farms will provide the majority of each performer's costume, participants are responsible for providing his/her own shoes/tights and undergarments as per the costume memo (to be provided once rehearsals start).
 
*Each registrant is also responsible for a $10 processing fee at the time of registration.
 
SCHOLARSHIPS
A limited number of financial aid packages are available. Please visit www.randomfarms.com/scholarship for info and application. 

HOW TO REGISTER
Enrollment in this program is first-come, first-served.  Registration begins at 8:00pm on Wednesday, February 13. Random Farms is pleased to announce that we have a new 2-part registration process with Patron Manager and Formstack.  We hope that this new system will create a smoother, more enjoyable registration experience over all.  

In this 2-part process, you'll first secure your spot in the program by making your selection and completing payment in Patron Manager.  As soon as your spot has been secured, you will receive a confirmation email which will direct you to a registration form in Formstack to provide us with all of your information.

WAIT LIST / PRIORITY REGISTRATION
There is no cost to join a wait list. If a spot becomes available, we will email you and you can decide at that time if you would like to take it. If we are not able to find a spot for your child in any group, your child will receive priority registration for the next Workshop production. That means that you will be given the opportunity to register the day before the program opens to the public. In most cases, this means you will get a spot in your first choice group. To find out where your child is on a wait list (you can join as many as you want, even if you are already in a group), email our Registration Team at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . It is difficult for us to know if/when that will happen, but typically children drop right before the program starts.

NOTE TO PARENTS
The RFKT workshop schedule is designed to be manageable for families and children. The commitment is just once a week, with only one extra rehearsal right before the show. Each performer can take up to one full absence, plus up to two "shadows," which allows performers to come during another section, if they have a conflict during their own time. The mandatory rehearsals leading up to the show are extremely important and ensure that every cast member is comfortable and prepared when it is time to do the show.

PLEASE READ OUR STANDARD AGREEMENT BEFORE REGISTERING

For Sessions 1 – 8: Children may take up to 1 absence. Children may also shadow up to 2 rehearsals. If a child is 30 minutes late to rehearsal twice, this will count as one full absence, per the absence policy.

For Sessions 9 – 10 (Mandatory): Children are required to participate in the dress rehearsal and the final dress/performance for his/her own cast. Switches, shadowing, and absences are not permitted for Sessions 9 or 10.

Additional absences due to illness or emergency are permitted solely at the discretion of the director. 

Participants who do not comply with this participation policy may be removed from the program and their account put On Hold, as described in RFKT's Standard Agreement, until parents, participant and RFKT can reach agreement moving forward. Please note that there are no refunds/credits.

*A shadow is like a make-up. If your child misses a session, s/he can make-up the same session with another group. For example, if you are in group B and miss session 3, you can shadow session 3 with group C.
