About The Show

The Young Performers’ Edition of The Wizard of Oz is a one-hour adaptation specifically tailored for elementary school and middle school aged children.

HEALTH AND SAFETY PROTOCOLS

The wellbeing of our campers, staff, and their families is our number one priority. We are taking the following steps this summer to ensure a safe environment:

  • Twice daily deep cleaning of all facilities with hospital-grade cleaning supplies, with regular disinfecting throughout the day
  • Daily contact-free temperature checks for campers and staff
  • Limited enrollment and maximal use of facilities to create space for learning, including the use of outdoor space in White Plains
  • Regular breaks for hand washing and sanitizing

We will continue to monitor the latest developments and will comply with all state and local summer camp guidance.

REFUND POLICY

Normally, WPPAC does not offer refunds for our camps and classes after purchase. Due to the profound impact of Covid 19 on our community, we are offering an adjusted refund policy this summer:

If a parent wishes to withdraw from a camp, a refund (minus a 20% administrative fee) will be processed as follows: 

  • Like all arts organizations, Covid-19 has severely impacted WPPAC. In the event of withdrawal or cancellation, parents have the opportunity to make a tax-deductible contribution of the refund, supporting this essential part of the White Plains community
  • OR, 25% of refund balance sent immediately, the remainder of refund processed within 90 days
  • OR, a full refund can be issued immediately as a gift certificate for any WPPAC program

If WPPAC cancels any summer camp programming, a refund will be issued as follows: 

  • Parents have the opportunity to make a tax-deductible contribution of the refund, supporting this essential part of the White Plains community
  • OR, 25% of refund balance sent immediately, the remainder of refund processed within 90 days
