All classes are conducted in the Prospect Playhouse classroom - upstairs - classes are private to tutor and students. Parents or guardians must drop-off the students and either return for them at the end of the allotted class or wait in their cars. It is not possible to allow unsupervised access to any other part of the theatre. You are welcome to sit at our picnic tables outside. We ask that all students come in appropriate clothing and footwear for moving around in, and that they bring plenty of water.
