as this information needs to be passed on to chaperones. If your child requires any prescription medicines on the day of the show we need written instructions of dosage needed, any medicines should be clearly labelled and handed to Tara( registered first-aider ) at the stage door she will then administer any medication needed. If you have recently changed your contact details and have not advised us please do so before the show.

WHAT YOUR CHILD NEEDS WITH THEM

Every pupil needs to bring their costumes in suit bags, their make- up Brush, comb, hairspray etc... Black Shorts for the finale, NAME EVERYTHING !!!!! They will need plenty of water and if performing in both shows on Sunday they will need food.

No chocolate, sticky sweets, chewing gum, fizzy drinks or blackcurrant please. Glitter spray may not be used in the changing rooms so if you are asked to bring this it must be handed to your chaperones. Children who are doing both shows need to leave the theatre for a short time in-between performances to abide by “theatre time” regulations. the chaperones will arrange this in small groups.

Make up required. Dark foundation( approx. 1-2 shades darker than skin tone) blusher, blue eye shadow, bright red lipstick, black mascara. (We normally find the cheaper make up stays on the longest). Seniors will be informed on colours by your teacher.

We recommend that jewellery, mobile phones/ devices are not brought backstage as we cannot be held responsible for any lost or broken items.

COLLECTING YOUR CHILD AT THE END OF THE SHOW Please queue outside the stage door where your children will be checked out. As we have over 150 pupils taking part in the shows this process does take a long while so please be patient. YOUR CHILDRENS SAFETY AND WELL BEING AS ALWAYS IS OUR TOP PRIORITY.

A little word from your principles & teachers

We know the last 18months has been a very tough time for everyone, we are so happy to be able to do our show at last ! Obviously it has been very difficult to rehearse properly with children on holidays and isolating so this show isn’t going to be our normal calibre of performance, but all the children, teachers and staff have worked extremely hard to put this Show together and we hope you will be able to sit back and enjoy the experience of seeing your children back on stage doing what they love xxx

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us. !!!!!!!!!!! WE HOPE YOU ALL ENJOY THE SHOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!
