  • All students must be physically signed out by an authorized adult
  • Please pickup promptly at 12:00pm. There is a 15-min grace period, after this we will charge $1.00 per minute and send an invoice.

How are students supervised?

Students are never left alone and are always with at least one adult present.

How do Dress Up Days work?

Each session will have one Dress Up Day where students can dress in the theme of the session. This is just for fun and costumes are not required.

  • Please don’t buy/rent anything! Again, this is just for fun
  • Dress Up Days are typically Wednesday for 1-Weeks and the first Friday for 2-Weeks

Can I take multiple sessions?

Of course! Each session will focus on a different series of shows, styles, historical periods, composers, and choreographers. Students will learn songs, scenes, and dances from a variety of theatrical sources.

Location & Parking:

Where are you guys?!

Theatre 360 rents space in the First Baptist Church.

Our exact address for directions and GPS is:
75 N Marengo Ave
Pasadena, CA 91101

HOWEVER, the entrance for us is on Union Street, through the gate.

You’ll see a black gate with a park inside and a pair of doors that lead into a gym (where our office is located). Our big, bright green banner will be on the gate too!

Where do we park?

Parking is available for free with validation in the Holly Street Garage directly behind the First Baptist Church. The entrance is on Holly Street only!

Before Care:

How does Before Care work?

On the first day of camp we will collect your credit card information to keep on file until the end of your child’s session. Through our sign in sheets we keep track of days use and charge you only for before care enrolled in.

For Before Care you must sign-in at the office each day you use the service.

Any student that is dropped off before 8:45am will automatically be enrolled in our services regardless of how long they stayed. You will be called, emailed, and sent an invoice.

Do you have After Care for Showbiz Kidz?

Unfortunately, at this time, we are unable to have After Care for this program. Students will need to be picked up at 12:00pm.

The Final Showcase:

Is there a showcase that parents, family, and friends can attend?

Yes! On the very last Friday of each session there is a final showcase.

  • This is free and open to anyone who wants to come!
  • Showcases begin at 11:30am.

What’s the dress code for performances?

  • Please wear your summer camp t-shirt shirt and dark colored bottoms (black/dark blue)
  • Bottoms should still be easy to move in

Can we record the performance?

Certainly! We just ask that while recording you stand off to the side or in the back so as not to obstruct anyone’s view.

Absences, Lateness, & Missing Camp:

We’re going to miss a day! Is that okay?

We love it when our students can commit to a whole session as they are constantly building on new skills and working together.

However we do know it is summertime, we ask that you please just let us know in advance, or if your student suddenly becomes ill or an unexpected conflict arises please call our office as soon as possible so we are aware of their absence: 626-577-5922.

The students are working on an end of session showcase. If you cannot attend the last day please let us know as soon as possible as that affects all students and teachers involved.

Please note, though, we do not prorate or give money back for missed classes/days of camp.

Can we come for just one week of a two week session?

We don’t recommend this as it prevents the student from having the full summer camp experience and they simply miss out on a lot!

Building Info:

Is there air conditioning?

Unfortunately, since the building is so old is it unable to have air conditioning.

  • Every room we use for camp has multiple fans, swamp coolers, and our teachers make sure the students take breaks and drink plenty of water.
  • We also have drinking fountains by the washrooms and of course we encourage students to bring water bottles if they prefer.
