Camp Guidelines and Expectations


A Friendly Reminder to All Parents and Guardians -


With over 100 children in our camp, we can only function successfully with a few rules and expectations:


  • Rule 1: Our doors will not open until 8:30am except on the first day of camp (the doors will be open at 8:00am for check-in and to finalize registration and payment). The doors will be locked at 5:00pm. Should you not be there at 5:10pm to pick your child, I will take the child home with me.

  • Rule 2: No chewing gum EVER in the building!

  • Rule 3: No liquids to drink except water.

  • Rule 4: No flip flops, crocs, high heels, or wedges.

  • Rule 5: No cooking (bring a cold lunch).

  • Rule 6: No bullying or hurtful language.

  • Rule 7: No wandering around the building- you must stay with your class at ALL times!

  • Rule 8: If you bring jewelry, money, or expensive items for social media- we will not be responsible for your loss… Leave it at home.

  • Rule 9: No running in the building at any time


Please call Linda Haskett at 254-776-0707 or email info@wacochildrenstheatre.org if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you!

Audition Information


To All Campers from Linda Haskett:


I understand that many of you are concerned about our audition process. The first thing you need to know is that everyone will be in the show!


On Sunday, June 3rd at 3:30 pm, we will hear vocal auditions from 6th to 12th grade students if they are prepared to sing that day. We prefer that everyone sing a song from one of the shows that we are doing this summer - we will have the sheet music from both Cinderella and Oklahoma at auditions. If you are not singing from the show, you must bring your own sheet music; no recorded accompaniments please.


Children in grades K-5 will be auditioning during the day at camp, and those 7 and younger may sing any song they are familiar with. Our choreographer will be responsible for all dance auditions. Please understand that these are not competitive auditions, and no parts are precast!


We will post the cast list as soon as possible along with what you need to provide for your child’s costume. I look forward to looking at these shows with a clean eye so that I can be surprised and thrilled by the auditions. Keep reminding your children that it isn’t important what part they play in the show. It is important, however, that they learn to do their best and SPARKLE!


“The play is not in the words. It's in you.”
