HOW DO I REGISTER FOR THE SATURDAY PERFORMANCE WORKSHOP?
You can call the office 7 days a week between 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and we'll set you up over the phone, OR you can use the ONLINE form located on the left. The office phone number is (760) 806-7905.
OUR WORKSHOPS FILL UP FAST, so register early.
Ages....Enrollment fees....Rehearsal and Performance location
Kids between the ages of 7 and 17 may enroll. All rehearsals and performances will be held at the Broadway Theater in Vista. So don't put off registering. EVERY CHILD IN THE WORKSHOP will have speaking lines. This is another reason kids and parents LOVE our workshops - everyone gets a chance to shine. We will fill up fast.
As for the participation fee....We pride ourselves on keeping our participation fees lower than any youth company around. Being in a show shouldn't break Mom and Dad's budget The cost of the Workshop is - $100.00 and every child registered must sell a required seven tickets to the show. They may sell as many as they want, but they must sell their required seven. Ticket prices are $7.00 for kids under 12 / $8.00 for seniors and military / $10.00 for adults. If tickets are purchased by friends and family at the door tickets are $2.00 more.
The day you register for the workshop you will be charged a $20.00 non-refundable, ’hold my slot’ fee. This fee was implemented because during the past three years we have had an epidemic of parents registering and then dropping the workshop a week or so before the workshop starts. With such short notice, filling that slot with an alternate is impossible. Why? Because parents - even those on the waiting list - have already found something else for their child to do. The remaining $80.00 will be charged one week prior to the start of workshop. Your child’s enrollment fee helps to cover crafts and supplies, and your child's costume rental and cleaning. GREAT DEAL!! NO PARTIAL enrollments will be allowed. Your child must attend all 6 Saturdays AND the final three dress rehearsals on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday following the 6th Saturday and NO ONE is allowed to miss any performance.
If you decide to drop your child after the first day of workshop you will only be refunded $50.00

Workshops / Camps We began our Workshops 25 years ago AND our summer Drama Camp program came about 15 years ago. There would be no camps if it weren't for the Workshop format. We pride ourselves on giving the kids MORE crafts, and MORE fun, yet we still charge LESS than any other youthprogram.
Co-owners Randall Hickman and Douglas Davis both come from very large families. They know that your child’s extra-curricular activity should not break a working family’s budget.

VISTA YOUTH CAMPS, (Ages 7 to 14), ENROLLMENT FEE
We pride ourselves on our affordable camps. The cost of each camp is - $275.00 per two week session. That around $2.95 cents AN HOUR! The day you register you will be charged a $50.00 non-refundable, ’hold my slot’ fee. This fee was implemented because during the past three years we have had an epidemic of parents registering and then dropping the camp a week prior to the start of the camp - and filling that slot with an alternate is impossible. Why? Because parents at this late stage have already found something else for their child to do. The remaining $225.00 will be charged one week prior to the start of camp. Your child’s enrollment fee covers two snacks a day; one field trip a week; all crafts and supplies, and your child's costume rental and cleaning. GREAT DEAL!! NO PARTIAL enrollments will be allowed because the first day of camp we cast the SHOW and the kids perform in that show the second Thursday or Friday of camp. This is NOT a 'drop in' camp. In order to be a part of the fun you MUST be there everyday or we will be unable to accept your registration. If you decide to drop your child after the first day of camp you will only be refunded $100.00 because $50.00 non-refundable 'hold my slot' fee, insurance, field trip, snacks, costume cleaning, Hearth Theater rental and craft supplies have already been paid for. ALL the VISTA DRAMA CAMPS will present their show on the San Marcos Hearth Theater Stage in the San Marcos community center—3 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos, 92069.
The Vista camps are held in our downtown Vista Theater - The BROADWAY. The Broadway Theater is located directly behind Vista's Avo Playhouse, on the quiet street of East Broadway—340 East Broadway. We are across the street from the Yellow Deli.
TIMES of CAMP
The STRUCTURED DAY, (when the kids work with the Director's), is from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.. However, you may drop your child off as early 9:00 a.m., and pick up must be made by 6:00 p.m. or you will be charged a $1.00 per minute late fee. If you require drop off earlier than 9:00 a.m., we do have staff that arrives at 8:00 a.m.. The charge for EARLY DROP-OFF is an additional $5.00 per day. Every year one of our camps ALWAYS seems to fall on the 4th of July. We DO NOT hold camps on this day and we do not prorate the day. All of our camps are a flat fee. We wanted to give you a heads-up about this when choosing your camp.
AGES of PARTICIPANTS and STAFF
To be a part of our REGULAR camps your child must be between the ages of 7 and 14 years on the day they begin the camp. If your child is 6 years old or younger - and you knowingly register your child for this camp - your child will be immediately removed from the camp with no refund. We are very firm on the 7 to 14 years. Our insurance DOES NOT cover children under 7 years of age.
Camp Directors are PREMIERE FOR KIDS founders, Randall Hickman and Douglas Davis. Camp staff are 18 years and up and jr. councelors are 16 years and up. Our entire staff is made up of young men and women who we've watched grow up in our program. Our staff to kids ratio is one director, and 2 staff members. TO find out more about camp directors, Randall Hickman and Douglas Davis and our 2018 staff come back on May 1st and we will have a CAMP STAFF DAY posted for you to look at.
We currently have no workshop registering. Come back on Ocotber 15th to see what
we are offering this Christmas!
CAMP #5: August 6th through 17th - 2018
What exactly is an 'On Stage - Saturday Only - Performance workshop'?
Well, the format is what started it all for us 25 years ago. Back in 1993 I came up with idea to start a Saturday workshop that would run for 6 weeks - 3 hours each Saturday. There would be no formal audition - all you had to do was sign your child up and they were automatically in the show. The first day I would cast the show and then for the next 5 Saturdays we would rehearse the kids and do various crafts that related to the show. All of this fit perfectly into a 3 hour format each Saturday. Following the 6th Saturday, the kids would meet on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. and rehearse their show in costume, on the set with full lighting and sound. Finally, the show would then play for 5 performances - Thursday and Friday at 7:30 p.m. / Saturday at 2:00 and 6:00 p.m. and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. Parents LOVE this format because their child is able to do a show without having to rehearse 3 to 4 days a week after school for a month. Minimal commitment but MAXIMUM fun. All the benefits of a full show without all the rehearsal time.
