About HPA Kids!        

  • For students aged 8-12 as of September 1 for all shows (students who are 8 by January 1 can join the Spring shows).
  • Performances are under an hour long and have limited sets, props, and costumes.  
  • Although the performance is important, the purpose is individual actor development. 
  • There are approximately 10 weekly rehearsals prior to show (some variation for each show). 
  • There is one performance date with two shows.
  • Ticket prices for the performances are minimal ($2 each) and immediate family members receive free tickets to one show.  
  • Parents are not required to serve on committees or sell ads to support the show. 
  • Students will NOT need to audition to participate in HPA Kids! this year.
    • Students may sign up via the website.
    • Everyone who signs up will receive a role.
    • Auditions for specific roles will be held on the first rehearsal day for each show.
  • Tuition will include a show t-shirt and is $175 for 1 student in 1 show. 
    • A multi-tuition discount will apply for families with students in HPA Kids! according to the following breakdown:  Two tuitions - $165 each;   Three tuitions - $145 each;   Four tuitions- $120 each;   Five or more tuitions- $110 each
    • The same student participating in both semesters will receive the multi-tuition discount IF they register for second semester when they register for first semester.  Families who opt to wait to register for 2nd semester later will not receive the discount retroactively for 1st semester.
