All lessons and plays, drama and dance resource materials are subject to VAT in the UK and EU. Due to new regulations -January 2015 VAT will be added according to the VAT percentage of the buyer's country within the EU.

Copyright restrictions apply to all products.

We offer a free consultation service by e-mail to help you with any questions or help you might need regarding the materials.

Lessons To Order

It is recommended that you e-mail us if you want any more information about Lessons and Plays before purchasing.

Once you have ordered and paid for your lessons they will reach you by e-mail in Word Format usually within 2 days unless otherwise stated beside the product information. If they do not you should contact us. If you wish the lessons to come in any other file format such as pdf please let us know.

You may copy lessons for your own organisation's use only and you can make changes where appropriate for your students. All lessons are copyrighted. Copyright is very serious and is upheld by Law.

You cannot transfer copies to anyone outside your organisation in printed or electronic form. If you work for several organisations you will need to purchase several copies for each organisation should that organisation wish to have their own copy.

If we send you a lesson in error that you have not ordered you will be fully refunded or re-sent the correct order providing we are notified within 7 days within your receiving  that order.

If you wish to use a lesson plan to present as a performance to an audience you may have to purchase a Performance Licence for the number of performances you wish to do. Please contact us for advice on presentations.  

The Drama Studio retains the right to disallow a sale or order of lessons for whatever reason, in which case you would be fully refunded.

Downloads

Some of the lessons can be downloaded. Go through the payment procedure and then Click on My Orders. Click on the corresponding Licence Number and then the Download Link. We regret that Downloads are non-refundable.

Plays

Once purchased, plays will be sent to you by e-mail to reach you within 1-7 days.

If you need a play quickly please check on the status of a play by e-mailing us to confirm timescale as plays are updated from time to time.

Plays will be e-mailed to you in Word format unless requested in a different file format.

All plays are copyrighted and cannot be represented as your own work. Copyright is very serious and is upheld by Law.

You may copy plays/scripts and improvisations for your own organisation's use only.

You cannot transfer copies to anyone outside your organisation in printed or electronic form. If you work for several organisations you will need to purchase several copies. For example a Freelance teacher wishing to use the same play in several schools would need to purchase a copy for each school. This cost is usually passed on to that organisation or accounted for in the Freelancer's Fee.

Plays may be slightly adapted to suit the creativity and ideas of your students. Major changes should be made in consultation with The Drama Studio.

If we send you a play in error that you have not ordered you will be fully refunded or re-sent the correct order providing we are notified within 7 days within your receiving of the order.

If you wish to perform a play to an audience you will have to purchase a Performance Licence for the number of performances you wish to do.

The Drama Studio retains the right to disallow a sale or order of lessons for whatever reason, in which case you would be fully refunded.

Royalties and Licences

Should you wish to perform a play (scripted or improvised) to an audience you may need also to purchase a Licence for the number of times you wish to perform that play.

Royalties are paid to the writer/author of the work.

Licences fall into 2 categories

1)Public Performance to a paying audience

2)Public Performance to a non-paying audience

We do not charge to perform a play to another class of students within your organisation.

The author/writer should be given mention on all advertisements, promotions, programmmes etc. Additionally all publicising should read "By arrangement with The Drama Studio."

If you decide to perform a play more times than sepcified in the original agreement you can pay for additions to the Licence by e-mailing us with the details.

Licences will only be granted to persons or organisations that have purchased the Script, improvisation or lesson in question. They are valid for 4 months from date of issue.

Videos of Performances

Videos have the same Royalty conditions as Performing Licences.

You can make one video of the performance free of charge. Thereafter copies of that video are chargeable at £0.50 per copy.

Your copies must display on the video text, the label and cover the writer/author of the play and "By arrangement with The Drama Studio."

Videos for professional or commercial use and training are strictly forbidden.

Terms and Conditions - Class Fees


All class fees are payable by the term or for a Holiday Activity Week.

Fees are payable before the start of the term.

Any other type of payment is strictly by arrangement only.

There are 4 terms in our year.



 

Weekly Class Fee Refunds

The Drama Studio is committed to pay Hall fees and Class Teacher fees and can only do so based on class bookings and student commitment to the term.

Some of our Weekday Classes offer Early Bird Payment options. These will be refunded  if the class is cancelled prior to  the start of term.

A £5 refund fee will be charged for class cancellations.

For new students we recommend paying for a one-off class to try it before paying for a term fee. This trial session is not available in school clubs.                                               

We regret we cannot give term refunds of any kind after the term has started.

Holiday School Refunds

Holiday School refunds cannot be given in the two week period before the start of the Holiday School.

A £5 refund fee will be charged for refunds.

We cannot give refunds should students become ill or injured either at the Drama class or outwith it during term-time or holiday clubs.

Class Cancellation

Should we have to cancel a class due to teacher illness or unavailability that class will be credited or refunded to the students.

Classes may also be cancelled due to venue closures (at times such as bad weather conditions or school closures for any reason).

The Drama Studio has no control over venue closures and has a commitment to pay all Tutors and Admin Staff who are booked, available and able to work.

We cannot therefore instantly give credits for these types of cancellations.

However after 2 consecutive sessions of disruption we will apply the refund/credit policy from that point on.

Casting

Drama Studio students can join our Casting Agency to be put forward for opportunities in TV, Radio, Film, Theatre etc. This is a free service and parents will be asked to complete a Casting Agreement Form for us. Should a teacher put a student forward who has not yet completed a form the same Terms and Conditions will apply.
