19th January 2018

Hope that everyone’s having a good start to the new year! 

Show Ticket Pre-Sale! Show tickets will be on sale from Sunday 11th February at the Studio 10am til 12. Afterwards tickets will be on sale from Reception during normal opening hours.
Adults £10 / Concessions £8 / Under 5’s £5

Ticket sales are cash only, if you know the number of tickets you require before hand then having the the correct change in an envelope is very helpful! We politely ask anyone wanting to watch more than one show to wait until in the week to purchase additional tickets please, do not purchase tickets for multiple shows for the same person at the pre-sale event. Generally around half the tickets sell on this first day, and there may be a little queue at 10am… If you cannot purchase your ticket on this day feel free to ask a friend to get yours for you. Please remember that we cannot reserve any tickets and all tickets purchased are non refundable. As much as we want our students to experience performing to a full audience, it is also very important to us that no-body misses out. There are 5 shows over two weekends, so there are lots of opportunities for parents, families and friends to see the Show! Rows A and B (front two rows at the theatre) are generally reserved for those who cannot access the seats which are higher up the steps. There are also two wheelchair spaces per performance.

Make-Up Packs are the same as last year. But for anyone who’s new to the show, there are now two sheets up on the studio notice board explaining what the Make-Up Packs include and a list of items to be sourced by students themselves.

There is a list on the notice board for anyone who needs a new Make-Up Pack or replacement items. Please write your name on this list to place an order. Orders will be going in Friday 26th January.

Reminder that all students will need Shimmer Tights for the show, they can be purchased online here.
