Show day - arrival times, dress rehearsal, pick up details
SATURDAY - SHOW DAY!!
Everyone will need a ticket to come and watch the shows. If you are helping with hair and make up before the show, you will still need a ticket and you can leave with enough time to get a seat before the show starts.
Dress rehearsal is from 10.30am - 12.30pm this Sat 26th Nov at the John Paul College gymnasium.
Please pack some snacks and water for your child as they will have a bit of downtime.
Please send your child dressed in their costume and shoes if required. Please note no parents are allowed in to watch the dress rehearsal. Parents of Lil Hoppers (5 year olds) - you may come backstage with your child during the dress rehearsal and take them home once they are finished. All other children will be required for the whole rehearsal as they are performing in both the first and second half of the show.
Show arrival time
After the dress rehearsal (12.30pm) please pick your children up for lunch and return them before the show at the time shown below. Please click on the link to see each groups arrival time.
After the evening show has ended, the dancers will be brought into the stage area where they can be picked up by parents. No dancers (except for Lil Hoppers) can be picked up before the show ends as there will be a finale which they will all be involved in.
Costumes (children with more than one)
If your child has more than one costume (due to dancing with more than one group) they will need to bring their costumes to the dress rehearsal named and organised so that they are ready to make some quick costume changes during the show (there some suggestions in the costume notes that were given out with costumes). They do not need to wear their costumes for the morning dress rehearsal.
Hair & Make Up For the show
Please arrive with clean, brushed, product free hair.
Please also send your girls along with 2x strong black hairbands on their wrists so the hairdressers can use them to put their hair up. We supply hair clips and hairspray but not hairbands.
Please come with base (foundation) and mascara already done. Also if you are able to manage a tidy line of black eyeliner on the upper eyelid that would be great. Optional for boys to wear make up.
We will do blush, eyeshadow and lipstick for each of the groups.
Please make sure your child doesn't come with any jewellery; this includes earrings, necklaces and watches.
You may use a small hand held device for recording purposes – as long as it doesn’t distract other audience members by displaying light etc. No photography is permitted. We have professional photographers taking photos and you can order directly from their website after the shows. See here for details and price list.
Thank you to those that have volunteered to help before the shows. You will have been contacted by now about what time we need you there on Saturday. If you haven't heard from us but have volunteered to help, please call us on 07 578 8780.
