Corbett Theater @ School for Creative and Performing Arts

On Saturday, May 28, students must arrive IN COSTUME at the theater by their designated drop-off time and be ready for rehearsal. That means their hair and any optional light makeup they may desire to wear should be done in advance. Every class rehearses once on the stage before the show, and this is their only opportunity to do so. A timely arrival is crucial! Students who are not at their rehearsal will not be able to perform in the show.

As staff will be in the theater quite a bit over the course of the week and especially on performance days, our ability to answer incoming calls to our Administrative Office will be extremely limited. To report an absence or a late arrival to a rehearsal or performance, or for any other urgent communication related to Spring Production, please use our Absence Notification Line (513.562.1111 Option 1) to leave a message for our team.
Please discuss the expectations below with your student prior to their arrival at the first theater rehearsal:

What to bring:
☐ An extra pair of footed tights
☐ Ballet shoes
☐ Cover-up (zippered sweater or jacket for over their costume)
☐ A blanket, towel or yoga mat to sit on
☐ A small “clean” snack. Clean snack examples: pretzels, animal crackers, veggie sticks, crackers, string cheese. PLEASE: No nuts.
☐ Water in a closed container (please label your student’s water bottle)
☐ Books or a quiet game/activity are permitted as there will be some breaks
☐ Masks (if desired)
What to leave at home:
☒ Messy or sticky food
☒ Beverages other than water
☒ Noisy games, video games, electronic devices, cameras, tablets, laptops
☒ Jewelry and valuables
Please make sure all your student’s belongings are clearly labeled. The Academy is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
All female students should arrive at the theater with their hair in a medium bun unless otherwise instructed. For guidance in making the perfect bun, below are a few helpful tips.
All bun supplies may be purchased at your local drugstore in the hair styling section.
Our colleagues at Houston Ballet Academy have also created this video with examples of various hair textures:
Ticket On Sale Date: Wednesday, April 6, 2022
Spring Production tickets will go on sale Wednesday, April 6, 2022. All Academy families will receive an email that includes a link to purchase tickets. Please keep in mind the specific performance time your student is performing in when purchasing tickets. Tickets may be purchased online, in person at the Cincinnati Ballet Box Office, or by phone.

Because of the number of young performers in Spring Production, we divide our Children’s Division classes between three performances, at 10:00 AM, 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM. The chart below designates which classes are performing during each performance time. A mandatory rehearsal precedes each performance, so your student has opportunity to be comfortable on stage prior to the performance. Families should anticipate students needing to be at the theater up to 2 hours prior to their performance time.

Regular attendance is important! Children’s Division instructors are using a portion of regular class time to work on Spring Production choreography. As we get closer to our production date, consistent attendance is important in helping students prepare well for their performance. However, we kindly ask you continue to observe all health and safety protocols and keep your student at home if they are sick. Their health and safety come ahead of rehearsal!
A Note on Makeup Classes: In the event a student misses their regular class, they are still welcome to schedule a makeup but be aware they won’t have opportunity to rehearse their specific performance piece in the makeup class. Each Children’s Division class works on a different performance piece choreographed by their instructor.
Communication is key! Please let us know if your student will have to miss a class by using our online Academy Absence Reporting Form or contacting the Academy at 513.562.1111 (select Option 1).
Costume Distribution Week: May 9 – 15
Costumes will be distributed during your student’s class the week of May 9-15. During that week, we encourage a parent or guardian be present to pick up your student and sign for their costume. It’s important each student’s costume makes it into the right hands. All students are required to have their costume in order to participate in Spring Production, and should costumes not make it home, there’s not sufficient time to order another.
A Note on Sizing: Once these costumes are received, they are yours to keep. We do our best to ensure we order the proper size for your student based on the measurements provided. Because the costumes come in standard sizes and because students grow quickly, some costumes may need to be altered slightly to ensure proper fit. Families should feel free to make minor alterations to strap length and other areas to ensure proper fit as long as the look of the costume is not altered.
Spring Production t-shirt pre-orders have closed. A limited supply will be available for purchase at the performance May 28.
While COVID-19 protocols are relaxing, Cincinnati Ballet may need to implement certain health and safety policies to ensure the well-being of all participants. Cincinnati Ballet will offer ample notice of their safety protocols for Spring Production 2022 in order for participants to adequately prepare to comply.
We currently anticipate masking to remain optional. Limited capacities may be enforced in certain areas. All COVID-19 protocols are subject to change.
Professional photos of students will be taken from the audience during the performance. Approximately 6 weeks following the performance, families will be provided with a link to an online gallery so they may purchase prints directly from the photographer if desired. The performance will also be professionally filmed, and a complimentary copy will be sent to each participant approximately 8 weeks following the production. Please remember all other photography and video recording is prohibited during the Spring Production performance.
It takes a great team of parent/guardian volunteers to support our students behind the scenes at rehearsals and performances. All volunteers get one free ticket to the Spring Production performance of their choice! Visit the link below to learn more and sign up.
