How can I pay?
What do I bring?
A packed lunch, water bottle, comfortable shoes (not crocs) and loose clothing for movement and a pencil!
What are the age limits?
Performing classes are for 6 to 18 year olds sometimes with specific age group splits.
Singing, dancing and acting all require an element of self-discipline. We pride ourselves on providing an authentic theatrical platform on which performers are encouraged to respect each other, themselves and their environment.
Peace of mind
Our staff are professionally trained with police clearances and working with children checks. We also have qualified child care first aiders on hand.
Our shows naturally contain solo singing and acting roles, which have to be cast on day 1 of the course. Once you sign up we will give you a password to download songs and/or scripts from our website. We encourage everyone to learn as much as possible before they arrive. Auditions (which are not compulsory) are then held for anyone wishing to perform a solo item. Our focus is, and will always be, on the production as a whole. We endeavour to give performers as much ‘stage time’ as is possible by including them in huge production numbers and creating lots of minor speaking roles.
Learning Lines and Lyrics?!?!?!?!?!?!
We endeavour to do as much as possible to create the best performances at the end of the week. There is, however, one thing that we can't do. We can't learn your lines/lyrics. It is really important to listen to the music as much as possible before the course and to get help learning your lines once you have been cast!
Do I need to provide costumes?
In most cases all that is required is a simple base costume, which we will then accessorise. We don’t expect you to buy anything specific. Details are provided for each course.
What happens on ‘show’ day?
The cast arrive at the theatre in the morning (8.30 to 9.30am) and stay with us right up to the performance. A double packed-lunch and lots of drinks are required + chocs for the directors :-) Cast are then picked up from the ‘stage door’ after the show. Performances are usually scheduled for 6.30pm.
How do I buy tickets for the show?
You can buy tickets from us during the week. $20.00 for adults and $10.00 for children.
What happens if my child is ill or can't make it to a theatre school once I have signed up?
We are always happy to roll-over course fees for up to 6 months in such circumstances. Regrettably refunds are not available as they can incur various administrative fees.
