Class Acts

 

Through the Class Acts series of daytime performing arts events, your students can experience artistic, educational, and high quality performances created for young audiences.  Attendance at any Class Acts performance can help your students meet Common Core Standards in Reading, which include dance, music, theatre, and visual arts within the definition of a "text."

We hope you will integrate this arts experience into your classroom by using the Teacher Guide, which is mailed 3-4 weeks before the performance.  The Teacher Guide includes Attendance Information with directions, a campus map, arrival procedures, and information about appropriate behavior.  Students whose behavior is disruptive to others will be asked to wait in the lobby with a chaperone.

If your class includes low income students, please ask the Ticket Office about out Seat Scholarship Program.

    --- Be sure your estimated number of attendees includes everyone who will be watching the performance - students, teachers, parent chaperons, and bus drivers. Classes should have one chaperon for every 15 students; every 16th ticket is complementary.
    --- Inform the Ticket Office if anyone in your group needs accessibility services.
    --- Limited space is available for groups to eat lunch at UIS.  Please inform the Ticket Office if you would like to request lunch space.
  2. After your reservation is processed, you will receive a letter requesting that you confirm the details of your order and submit payment.
  3. When confirmation and payment are received by the Ticket Office, your group will be placed in the best available seats.
  4. A voucher with your seating information will be mailed to you.  Please bring the voucher with you to the performance.

Confirmation & Payment: You must confirm the total number of attendees 3 weeks before the performance.  If your order is not confirmed by this deadline, your seats will be given to the next group on our wait list.  Once the final number is confirmed, no seats may be released; based on availability, seats may be added to your confirmed order.  Payment must be received 2 weeks before the performance. Payment can be made by credit card, money order, cash, or check payable to Sangamon Auditorium Tickets and mailed to:

    Sangamon Auditorium Ticket Office
    University of Illinois Springfield
    One University Plaza, MS PAC 292
    Springfield, IL 62703-5407

Cancellation: All sales are final. We are not able to give refunds or exchanges. Only if your school officially closes on the day of a planned Class Acts attendance can we allow an exchange for another performance within the same season.  We must receive notification in writing from the school principal within 3 business days of the performance before an adjustment can be made to your account.

Accessibility Services: Students with accessible seating needs will be seated with their escort in the appropriate area, which may be separate from the rest of the group. Please request accessibility services two weeks or more before a performance to provide sufficient time to make and secure the appropriate arrangements. If advance notice has not been arranged, every reasonable effort will be made to accommodate your group based on remaining available seating upon your arrival. Accessibility services may not be available for every performance. Services are not arranged until requested and are contingent on the availability of the service providers.

Recommended Grade Levels: We recommend grade levels based on information provided by the performance company. Teachers at other grade levels may consider bringing their students to a performance, but they may experience some dissatisfaction. Please contact Amy Zepp at 217.206.6150 or azepp2@uis.edu if you have questions.
