WEST Performing Arts ad for the "Academy at WEST" summer classes.

West End Studio Theatre has released their summer 2012 schedule.  They have 19 programs that they are running this summer.  Each program has a specified age or grade range (ages 4–7, grades 4–10, grades 7–12, ages 14–21, and so forth).  The age range, when all the programs are combined, is 4–21, and I know that they hit both ends.

My son usually does 2 or 3 programs with them each summer.  This year he is planning to do the Teen Conservatory Scene Study Intensive, which is lead by professional actors from Shakespeare Santa Cruz, and the Hunger Games teen production.  He hasn’t decided about the other teen production yet, Beyond Xanadu, though there is a $100 discount if you register for both teen productions at the same time. He’s done the Shakespeare Santa Cruz Conservatory for the past 2 years, and it was quite different each time.  He’s expecting another quite different 2 weeks this summer.

I was pleased to see that WEST had taken a full-page color ad on the back page of the April edition of Growing Up in Santa Cruz, which is the issue that list local summer camps.  Although WEST has been growing rapidly mainly by word of mouth, I think that they have so much going on this summer that they may need the advertising to fill all their classes.

I’m wondering if the theater classes (which will take up at least 120 hours) can be included on his official transcript for his home-schooling through Alternative Family Education.
