* parts with an asterix indicate additional small role that is considered an ‘extra’ in a scene. To have an ‘extra’ part, students can only be included if they fit the available costumes. For that reason I haven’t allocated these small ‘extra’ parts yet.  If the part needs costumes that are on hire to us (and therefore a set number and set sizes that we CAN’T add to or alter) selection will be based on costume fit.

ATTENDANCE: it is vital that all attend each week and the November Theatre Rehearsal – all times for those have been published since Term 1 –and are listed below again. Girls who are en pointe need to always come ready with correct shoes! If you can’t attend for any reason, you must endeavour to catch up!

LAST Friday of TERM 3 – we will hold our regular lunchtime for Year 7 & 8 rehearsal – so please come directly to the studio at the end of the half school day, with lunch and your gear.  We will rehearse until 1.30pm.  This is important as you already will be missing a Friday in Term 4 to Show Day (giving us just 5 Fridays in Term 4!) and we start your production work late due to Year 8 ballet exams.

Annual Production Dates:

Sunday Rehearsals - 12th and 26th of November

Dress Rehearsal - Wed 29th Nov (Junior Dept to watch one of the two Acts – no other viewing)

TWO SCHOOL SHOWS - Friday morning December 1st (a small allocation of tickets will be on sale)

TWO FAMILY SHOWS - Saturday afternoon December 2nd

Show times yet to be finalized.

Lead roles: you may have short  rehearsals on the afternoons of Saturday 11th and/or Saturday 25th November.  Please leave these free and we will decide if this time is needed closer to the dates.

An Information Booklet with a comprehensive timetable is published early in Term 4.
