DRESS REHEARSAL TIMETABLE

DRESS REHEARSAL TIMETABLE & INFORMATION
This year we are holding our dress rehearsals over two afternoons.  We understand that for some children this will mean they will be required due to their number of classes and segments they are performing in on both afternoons.  Please appreciate that every decision we make is in the very best interests of the students.  We felt last year that it was far too busy, congested in the back of the theatre and we needed more precious time on stage to ensure that our lighting, sound and other effects will best enhance our students and ensure that it is a magical and memorable time for them.  We also appreciate that it’s a busy time of year and people work and there is the rush after school so we understand that the students may not be picture perfect.  We know they will look absolutely beautiful on the days of the concert.  We do ask that if you are unsure of hair and make up that you do practise on the dress rehearsal days so we can best guide you. 
DRESS REHEARSALS-  THURSDAY 30th November  3.30- 4.30pm
This will be an exclusive time slot just for Angelina students.  All classes in the Angelina program will be required at this time.  Please arrive dressed 15 mins prior to the commencement of the rehearsal so we can settle the students, say their goodbyes and take them into the auditorium.  They will be dismissed at 4.30pm and taken through stage doors to meet their parents.  We ask only one family member picks them up as there is simply not adequate space for a huge amount of people in the limited area we are given for backstage collection.  They are only little so we don’t want them overwhelmed by a huge amount of people waiting.   Our Angelina students will feature in their own FINALE” which will conclude the first exciting half of our performance.
DRESS REHEARSALS- THURSDAY, 30th November 5pm- 7.30pm
STUDENTS IN THE FIRST HALF OF THE SHOW NEED TO BE AT THE THEATRE BY 4.45pm dressed in costume and ready to perform.  All students in the first half will be dismissed at 7.30pm.  Students will wait in theatre auditorium unless they have costume changes where they will be permitted to access dressing rooms.
DRESS REHEARSALS- FRIDAY 1st Dec DEC 4.30 -7pm
Students appearing in the second half of the show will need to be at the theatre, fully dressed and ready to go at 4.15pm.  Students appearing in the second half will be dismissed from theatre at 7.00pm.  They will be sat in theatre auditorium whilst they are waiting but if they have costume changes they will be permitted to access dressing rooms.
Thank you to all the generous people who have volunteered to assist us on Concert Days.  We will need our volunteers to be inducted by Theatre Staff at 12.30pm Saturday, 2nd December.  This will give only those who are our volunteers and assisting in supervision and organisation access to back of house areas of the theatre. 
·       Entry to Dress Rehearsals is via Carrington Ave entrance.  Students are to be taken to back glass door ( stage door.)  Please ensure that you are dressed and ready to commence rehearsals at your nominated time.  This will be a full dress rehearsal in running order.
·      Students are to have their names marked off on their class roll as a sign in for rehearsal.  Performers and Parents are NOT permitted in the foyer area of the Theatre.  REHEARSALS ARE CLOSED.  ( Parents, friends etc are NOT permitted backstage, stage area or within the theatre auditorium.) Parents may wait in dressing room areas to assist with costume changes but only if your child has a costume change on that day of rehearsal.  Parents of young performers are welcome to stay in the Dressing Rooms Area.  Students are fully supervised in theatre.
·      Students are to wait to be called for each rehearsal. They will be dismissed from stage or auditorium at close of their rehearsal. 
·      Students with changes for rehearsals are asked to be prompt.  This is a good rehearsal for the actual day as there are a few quick changes needed.  Please set up side stage for the very quick changes.
·      No food or drink in the theatre auditorium during rehearsals.  Young students should not be eating and drinking while in costume.  Please ensure that all students have a water bottle that is labelled with their name.
·      Dressing Rooms are to be left tidy.

CONCERT DAY ORGANISATION



CONCERT DAY  Saturday, 2nd Dec 2pm and Sunday , 3rd Dec 11am Show & 5pm show
·       An Order of Appearance is on this note.  Please be aware that parents are required to change students if they are involved in more than one routine or make own arrangements to have another parent dress and change your child. 
·       Students appearing in the first half are asked to be at the venue by 1pm (2pm Saturday show) 10.15am (11am show) & 4.15pm (5pm show)fully dressed, with hair & make up done for first routine.  Please enter through back stage entrance ( Carrington Ave), locate your name ( in class rolls- as per order of appearance) and mark your name off.  Students will be supervised in large dressing room and called forth by our Stage Manager for their appearance.  Our first half of our program is timed for one hour and fifteen mins.  All Angelina students will appear in a special Tiny Tots finale at the close of first half.  After careful consideration, we have decided that we will present Angelina students with something special during their finale rather than conduct another Presentation.  We are mindful of how busy the lead up to Christmas is and didn’t want to impose any more pressure on our families. There will then be a twenty minute interval.  If watching the show please collect your child at interval if they have a ticket or ticket holders can return to audience immediately after their performance.  Students only appearing in first half and who don’t have family in attendance can be collected to go home.
·       Students appearing in the second half only are asked to be at the venue by 3pm (2pm Saturday show) ,12noon (11am show )  & 6.00pm (5pm show)and follow same instructions as set out above.  If students are watching the concert they need to report backstage for 2nd half ( if that is when their item is) at the times given.  The second half of the show has an estimated running time of one hour.  All students present are invited back on stage for a full cast Finale.  Following our Sunday 5pm show will be our 2017 Presentation ( for all students except Angelina dancers who would have already been presented.)
·       Parents leaving auditorium to dress performers throughout performance will be granted Back of House access through a door located near Door 1. ( foyer area past toilets)  We ask that you exit the auditorium from Door 2 and 3 only to gain access to this door to back stage.  Exiting from these doors will ensure minimum disruption to performers and patrons.  Please acquaint yourself with this door before the performance commences.  Likewise, students will need to follow same procedure if leaving auditorium to go backstage for a performance or change of costume.  This will only be possible if we have sufficient volunteers for each show to man the access doors.  Otherwise parents will need to walk around to Backstage entrance.
·       No one is allowed to sit in the aisles or on the steps under any circumstances (WH & S).
·       Mobile phones must be turned off during the performances.
·       Students who have tickets to watch are permitted to leave backstage area after they have performed.  All students must sign out on class roll and Students under 12 years of age must be collected from backstage area /dressing rooms/ Oxley Room by a parent or guardian.  We ask only one representative per student for collection due to the limited space and size of our cast.
·       ALL students will be reappearing in the Finales’ but it is at discretion of parents for young students if they stay for all shows or if they return home for a rest.  Students will be notified via a voice over when it is time to return backstage for FINALE’.  The 2017 Presentation will follow the 5pm Performance.  We would really like to acknowledge all students and have them present for Presentation. 
·       Refreshments will be served in the bar area.
·       Classes for 2017 will cease on Sunday, 3rd December.  There will be no Saturday classes on Saturday, 2nd December.  Our little superstars need to prepare for their performance and faculty will be at theatre preparing for a big but exciting weekend. We thank you for the tremendous support and enthusiasm shown by all students and their families throughout 2017 and we look forward to celebrating this in our production. Stepping Out Dance Factory truly is a special place made more so by the beautiful families within our fold. 2018 Enrolment Information will be available soon via an online Enrolment Form and our 2018 Enrolment Days will be advertised in Dubbo Photo News and on our Facebook Page.  Private Tuition for Eisteddfods will commence in early January 2016- Please register your interest with Miss Rikki on 041 336 1724.
