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. 
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 and Little Stars ( preschool jazz  will feature in their own FINALE” which will conclude the first exciting half of our performance.
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.
Students appearing in the second half of the show will need to be at the theatre, fully dressed and ready to go at 3.45pm.  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, 3rd 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.
·      Students must sign out before leaving the premises.
