Policies & Procedures
At Kaleidoscope Theatre for Young People, our relationship with our students, families, and artists is critical to our success. We welcome students, families, and artists in our studios to participate in high quality programs and do our best to provide them with a safe and enjoyable environment.
As an employer, Kaleidoscope Theatre for Young People is responsible for providing our employees with a rewarding, challenging, and safe work environment. For that reason, Kaleidoscope Theatre for Young People has expectations of its clients in its day-to-day operations:
- Treat fellow students, families, artists, and Kaleidoscope Theatre staff, board, and business partners with respect and courtesy. Unsociable behaviour, including harassing clients, students, families, artists, or staff, and the use of swearing or other obscenities, is not acceptable.
- Respect the needs of other students and artists to enjoy our programs and facility. Disruptive behaviour and excessive noise are not acceptable.
- Refrain from bringing food or beverages into the studios.
- If you appear to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol or if you are in possession of illegal drugs or alcohol, you will be refused service and will be asked to leave the premises.
