Hi Everyone, Well haven't we been a flurry of activity at Stepping Out HQ. IT'S OFFICIALLY A MONTH. WE ARE SO EXCITED !! The response to ticket sales has been so overwhelming. It's going to be amazing for the kids to perform to such impressive audiences. I've had a sneak peek at Costuming- ARGHHHHHHHHHH! They are going to look SENSATIONAL. Our next big moment in the preparation for this special day will be our Stage Rehearsals. Please read below. STAGE REHEARSALS- SUNDAY 1st DEC The countdown continues. Now it’s time to get really excited because after all of our hard work in class we are now about to step on to stage for our very first stage rehearsal. Our stage rehearsals will be held on Sunday, 1st December at Dubbo Regional Theatre, Darling St. The students are asked to please enter through the backstage entrance at Carrington Ave and mark your child’s name off the roll. This is a closed rehearsal and only performers will be allowed entry beyond stage doors and area. Stagecraft Rehearsals prepare the students for the correct manner to enter and exit the stage, the stage dimensions and other important features of Performance. They are an important and exciting lead up to Dress Rehearsals and our Concert and are sure to combat all the nerves and ensure the performers are feeling prepared, confident and most importantly, very excited about their performance. Please pack a water bottle for your child and for those students with numerous rehearsals, adequate refreshments. Students should come dressed in dancewear and the entire faculty will be present on the day to keep a watchful eye over our stars. Please collect your child from the backstage entrance at the close of their rehearsal.
