Show 2021 Saturday Night At The Movies
SHOW 2021 IMPORTANT UPDATE
I am thrilled to tell you, after many sleepless nights and endless chats with Queen Mary’s College, our show can go ahead. However, we need to add an extra show and make it available for everyone to see. I am so excited this can happen and know from talking to some of the girls how elated they are to perform their show pieces several times!
Therefore, this is the proposal:
FIRST SHOW: 12pm
SECOND SHOW: 3.30pm
EVENING SHOW: 7.30pm
We may feel exhausted on Sunday, but I am hoping we all pull together and think about creating a wonderful experience for our children at the end of this awful pandemic. You have all been amazing this is the last big pull!
Unfortunately, there will have to be some changes to the ticketing as we are now only allowed 175 people per show. The current ticketing is as follows:
MATINEE: 213 (12pm show). 40 people approx need to swap to 3.30pm
EVENING: 270 (7.30pm show) 100 people approx need to swap to 3.30pm
Purchasing of tickets has been suspended. there is a waiting list if you have not purchased tickets.
We need your urgent help solve this problem. We obviously need many of you to change your tickets to the 3.30pm show and give the performers the audience they deserve. If you’ve booked a large number of tickets, perhaps split them between two shows?
I’m afraid I have to stress that without people’s willingness to change or amend their plans, the show cannot proceed. So, if there is any way you could help in this logistical conundrum, I know the dancers would be extremely appreciative (not to mention myself!)
If you can change your plans, please contact the box office
PHONE: 01256 418318
Once at the hall, face coverings must be worn and the rule of 6 or two households must be observed.
Thank you all so much for your support, it means the world to me and the other teachers.
Show 2021 Saturday Night At The Movies
SATURDAY 3 JULY 2021
PERFORMANCES AT 12PM, 3.30PM, 7.30PM
* PLEASE TELL YOUR CHAPERONE IF YOU CARRY AN EPIPEN INHALER OR ANYTHING ELSE WE SHOULD BE MADE AWARE
* DON'T FORGET TO NAME EVERYTHING AND TO WRITE DOWN EMERGENCY CONTACT DETAILS
All children are in the Finale. At dress rehearsals we will start with the finale and then proceed with the running order. This enables the children to go home once their final item is completed. Although staring with the finale, please arrive in your first costume.
Make-up is to be worn at all dress rehearsals and performances. The children must wear make-up; otherwise they will look washed out on the stage with the strong lighting.
- Light brown foundation
- Brown/reddish lipstick
- Eyeshadow – natural tones
- Eyeliner – black or brown
Children up to the age of 7 do not need to wear foundation or eye-liner, as this can become quite messy!
Boys need a little bit of blusher and mascara.
All items of costumes must be named including dance shoes and accessories. Please make sure all costumes fit correctly and are ironed before the first dress rehearsal
FRIDAY 2 JULY
Please arrive for the dress rehearsal at the Drop off point at QMC at 4.45pm. Your child will be taken from you after being signed in. Do not go to the dressing room with your child otherwise we will exceed the regulation numbers for fire and safety rules.
Please send each child to QMC with an attached label on them or their bag stating:
- Dressing Room
- Telephone Contact number
Pick up times from the Stage Door at the QMC are as follows:
|Items 1-7||finish at 7pm|
|Items 8-16||finish at 7.45pm|
|Items 17-24||finish at 8.30pm|
|Items 25-32||finish at 9.15pm|
These are approximate timings. It is a dress rehearsal for the children but also a technical run thru. Please be patient.
SIGNING IN AT QMC
This is something we have to do before and after every show and rehearsal. We have many helpers doing their best to sign children in and then escort them to their dressing rooms. You will not be allowed access to the dressing rooms. Please be patient when picking up your child. It takes time to make sure every child finds their parent!
We cannot let children sign themselves out unless I have received a signed letter from a parent or legal guardian. Please do this well ahead of the show.
At the rehearsals and both shows, the children will sign in at stage door and be collected at stage door.
One dressing room will exit at a time. Parents are asked not to enter the stage door foyer; your children will exit with a chaperone.
MATINEE SHOW. 12PM
|Pick up:||2pm approx.|
- Come wearing first costume (obviously this applies to smaller children) with hair and make-up done
- Provide food and drink. Drinks to be in plastic bottles. No messy food. NO NUTS - DUE TO ALLERGIES
