Your commitment to NYT

To provide prompt feedback to Nelson Youth Theatre Company regarding any concerns you may have regarding the involvement of your, or any other, child in Nelson Youth Theatre Company.
To ensure that your child is able to get to rehearsals on time and is dropped off and collected in accordance with Nelson Youth Theatre Company’s policy.
That all fees are paid on time to allow Nelson Youth Theatre Company to meet its financial commitments.
To encourage and support your child by helping them learn lines, practice songs and in particular to help them deal with disappointments and view all productions as a team effort.
To recognise that everybody has strengths and weaknesses, but that public comparison of different actors abilities in a production can be profoundly damaging to the actors, to the production and to Nelson Youth Theatre Company as a whole.
