UPDATE 10 : Tickets Take Two

SATURDAY 10th JUNE - 2.15pm - KITSON HALL

On Saturday afternoon, the second wave of tickets sales will be taking place on a first come, first served basis.

Classes finish at 1.45pm when we will close the doors to pack up. We will then reopen the foyer at 2.15pm to take your orders. 

You will be able to purchase TWO more adult tickets at this time. You will be able to purchase as many child tickets as required. This policy is due to fairness, not because we want to exclude your extended family + friends.

If there are any tickets left after Saturday, we will then announce a Round 3! 

Payment: cash or cheque only ON THE DAY. Please do not ask if you can transfer and collect as we will have to refuse.

UPDATE 9 : Rehearsal Schedule - specific

Please find below a more detailed breakdown of the 4 rehearsals after half term. If you wish to download + save/print, here are the PDF links:

Sunday 11th June
Wednesday 14th June

Sunday 25th June
Running Order

The timetable(s) have been carefully thought out in order to rehearse scene changes and costume changes (therefore needing to go in order) as well as taking into account energy levels of different age groups and their stamina. 

Please look carefully at the schedule and work out your drop off and pick up times. Your child will need to be present whenever their dance is mentioned. Please look at the whole session's timetable, as it may be that your child will have a break and then be required to dance again.

If you have questions please email them to Jo or Ellis rather than ask teachers or assistants between classes. Not only are we usually trying to ensure the safety of children entering + exiting the studio, but we are not able to hold the personal schedule of each child in our heads unfortunately!

UPDATE 8 : Tickets - May 2017

SHOW TICKETS

There are 129 adult tickets and 25 child tickets available for each show. Adult tickets are priced at £15.00 and include a drink. Child tickets are priced at £7.50 and include a drink.* Seating at the theatre is unallocated.

The fairest system we have come up with is for each family to be allocated 2 tickets for a night of their choice in the first wave of ticket sales. Child tickets will not be available to purchase in this first wave - these will be first come first served AFTER half term with the remaining tickets.

These first 2 tickets will be available for payment + collection at the following times:

Friday 19th May - 5.15 - 6.00pm - Kitson Hall
Saturday 20th May - 9.00 - 11.45am - Kitson Hall
Monday 22nd May - 5.30 - 6.30pm - Kitson Hall
Wednesday 24th May - 4.45 - 6.00pm - Kitson Hall
Thursday 25th May - during class changeovers at Kitson Hall**

Payment can be made by cash or cheque and no tickets will be given without payment. Online transfer is not available for this.

After Thursday 25th May, any unclaimed tickets will then be added to the remaining tickets and sold on a first come first served basis after half term - exact date TBA. You will still only be able to purchase 2 further tickets per family in this second wave.

Any remaining tickets after this second wave will then be available to anyone!

* Child tickets - these will be on benches at the front, so your child must be happy to sit unaccompanied, and not be so tall as to obscure the view of those in the front row!

** Miss Jo teaches solo on a Thursday so ticket collection needs to be at class changeover only. Please try to collect tickets at one of the other times where possible.

PUPILS ONLY IN 1st HALF: 
If your child is only in the 1st half of the show, and you would like them to come in and watch the 2nd half, they can. They will need to sit at the front on the floor in front of the benches and will not require a ticket.

Alternatively, you can arrange for them to be picked up at the interval by someone else whilst you watch the second half.

UPDATE 7: Finale - April 2017

We are now at the stage of thinking about the finale of the show and need you to decide whether or not you would like your child/children to take part. 

Children only in the 1st half of the show have the option of being picked up at the interval on both nights. Therefore you may decide that you don't want them to take part in the finale.*

Children in both halves, or just the 2nd half, can only be picked up at the end of the show, so it would make sense for them to be involved in this last part of the performance.*

Rehearsals for the finale will be taking place as below:

Friday 9th June - 5 - 6pm - Kitson Hall
Friday 13th June - 5 - 6pm - Kitson Hall
Friday 23rd June - 5 - 6pm - Kitson Hall

The finale will also be rehearsed during the whole show rehearsals on Sunday 11th June, Saturday 17th June and Sunday 25th June as well as the technical rehearsal on Wednesday 28th June. We will schedule the rehearsals so as to maximise time e.g. first half, finale then second half if there are lots of first half only pupils taking part.

If you WOULD like your child/children to take part click here.

If you would NOT like your child/children to take part you do not need to do anything.

As with every element of the show, forward planning is required and therefore Jo will be planning the finale based on the number of pupils that have said they want to take part  Monday 4th June. 

*If you are unsure as to whether your child is in the 1st or 2nd half of the show then please scroll down to see the running order.

UPDATE 6: April 2017

Apologies folks - yet another spanner in the works which affects pupils in the second half only - please see below for running order.

The theatre has informed me that they have maintenance work going on that means we now cannot have the theatre on Sunday 18th June. Therefore I have transferred the rehearsal to Saturday 17th June at Kitson Hall. 

I am aware that these rehearsals do seem to keep changing but hopefully this will be the last unexpected issue we have to deal with - famous last words!

So, please see below for current timetable - detailed breakdown of what will be happening within the time slots will be coming soon. 

Rehearsal 1: Whole show no costumes - Sun 11th June - 2.30 - 7.00pm - Kitson Hall
Rehearsal 2: 1st Half with costumes - Wed 14th June - 4.30 - 8.30pm - Kitson Hall
Rehearsal 3: 2nd Half with costumes - Sat 17th June - 2.30 - 6.30pm - Kitson Hall

Show 2: Sat 1st July

UPDATE 5: April 2017

Whilst preparing for the term ahead we have been alerted to an issue with the rehearsal schedule.

On Wednesday 7th June we are unable to have Kitson Hall and all classes that week will be taking place at Holy Trinity as the Barnes Community Players take over the hall once again.

Therefore please note the below change to the show rehearsal schedule:

Rehearsal 1: Whole show no costumes - Sun 11th June - 2.30 - 7.00pm - Kitson Hall
Rehearsal 2: 1st Half with costumes - Wed 14th June - 4.30 - 8.30pm - Kitson Hall
Rehearsal 3: 2nd Half with costumes - Sun 18th June - 9 - 1pm - Theatre
Rehearsal 4: Whole show with costumes - Sun 25th June - 9 - 1pm - Theatre
Rehearsal 5: Technical Rehearsal with costumes - Weds 28th June - 4 - 8.30pm - Theatre
Rehearsal 6: Dress Rehearsal - Thurs 29th June - 4 - 8.30pm - Theatre
Show 1: Fri 30th June
Show 2: Sat 1st July

We are able to also reveal the show running order so you will be able to ascertain if your child is in 1st half, 2nd half or both and therefore which rehearsals they need to attend.

Rehearsals for the whole show will very likely go in running order so pupils in the 1st half only will not be required to stay for the entire duration. However, if you wish your child to be involved in the finale they may need to stay longer. More on this after Easter!

Charity:

We have decided to donate all proceeds from 'Myths, Monsters + Magic' to the charity One Fine Day.

Their conviction is that every child has creative potential worthy of expression. Their intention is to create year round workshops in Africa for the most vulnerable children to engage in. One Fine Day teachers have been giving the children of the Kibera and Mathare slums in Narobi weekly classes in different arts since 2007.

Their ballet and dance programmes are particularly successful and we hope that we are able to contribute to their continued success through our own dance endeavours.

UPDATE 3 : January 2017

We have now decided on the earlier dates for the show so please put the following in your diary!

Please note that if your child is in only one dance/is under 6 yrs we will take this into account with our scheduling; they will not be called for the entire rehearsal.

Younger pupils dances (HOP, Pre Primary, SKIP + JUMP) will all be in the 1st half so that they can be taken home in the interval should you so wish.

If you decide later down the line that you would like your child to be involved in the finale then they cannot be taken home in the interval.

UPDATE 1: November 2016

Myths, Monsters + Magic - Show 2017

QUESTIONS ASKED AT 8TH NOV MTG:

1. What time will the performances start?

Between 7 and 7.30pm. Each half will be between 30 - 40 min in length with a 20 minute interval so the whole show should end between 9 and 9.30pm. Younger students' dances will be in the first half so, if they do not wish to be in the finale, can be collected at the interval.

2. Apart Ballet, will there be any other exams for the rest of the term?

No. December 2016 will be the last ISTD Tap + Modern session of the academic year. There may be LAMDA exams but no others.

3. I can't do hair, can I still chaperone?

Yes please! There will be enough chaperones/teachers that can do hair and we are planning on one style throughout the show so it can all be done before the show starts.
