Pick-up, Drop-off, or Is your student in a conflicting activity? We realize families may need to drop-off students late, pick-up early, or have students participating in a conflicting activity. Please let a cast member know about your situation so that they can teach your student what they’ve missed during any portion of the event.

Meals: Participants should bring a sack lunch for every meal break.

Show Tickets: will be sold for the final show at the end of the workshop day & 30 minutes prior to the performance. We want to stress the importance of purchasing tickets before the show day to ensure you have a seat. As a reminder, your student(s) that are in the workshop do not need a ticket.  ADULTS ›› $10 & STUDENTS ›› $8

WE NEED HOST FAMILY VOLUNTEERS: We need your help to host two or more Young Americans during this event. Be one of 3,000 families across the world opening their doors to this amazing experience! The Young Americans are coming to our community. As a non-profit organization, they rely on families, like ours, to help house their touring group as they do their community outreach. Please consider opening your home for two or more cast members. Host families have helped house over 3,000 Young Americans in 25 countries. It’s really one of the most rewarding aspects for the workshop participants and their families. You can volunteer during the registration process.
