Our Scheduling

What sets 3 Sister Youth theatre performances out in our community is our  detail to production with the support of local Professional artists directors and industry professionals.

We encourage a  intense of Community spirit within the Youth. In accepting a role the Youth are expected to agree to there own

commitment contract. 

This document is a statement or self contract for al performers that they sign and have their parents witness. It asked that each member agree not to miss any rehearsal 4 weeks prior to the performance date, and to be available for the extra Sunday rehearsal, commonly used for wardrobe fittings and prop runs.

We have found that the  agreement re-enforces a sense of ownership and professional attitude that the Youth take empowering them with their own sense of ownership and responsibility
