2022 MID YEAR SHOW INFORMATION

Please bookmark this page for future reference.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT THIS YEAR.... 

This year we will be holding our show at 'The Studio' space at Bunjil Theatre.  This is a small "Black Box" theatre, with the same incredible tech team we had for our 2021 end of year show.

We make every effort to ensure our shows are as enjoyable as possible for all involved, with this in mind, we would like to advise that our mid-year show will be longer than previous years.

Unlike many other activities, students have been working towards this day for much of the year and we thank you for your patience and excitement for what will be a super fun show!  We anticipate the show will run for around 2.5 hours which includes an interval for our audience members.  
While we do our best to keep the show flowing, we also thank you for your patience should there be an occasional stoppage. Pre-planning will ensure this is kept to a minimum, but as you can understand working with children, sometimes last minute toilet trips, microphone changes or quick costume changes can mean a small delay. 

What will my child be performing?

Solo Singing Students - One two minute song each

Senior Teen Screen Acting Students - One two minute scene each will be screened

Music Theatre Students - Will take part in three songs as part of a story 

Drama and Confidence Students - Will take part in telling a fun story.  Each child has a small role appropriate for their age.

STUDENTS WITH VERY SHORT HAIR

Please ensure it is neatly out of their face.

SCREEN ACTING AND SOLO SINGERS

MAKE UP

 

Make up has always been, and remains optional at our school

As stage lights are very strong they tend to wash out Performer’s faces. We recommend that Performers wear basic make up, but it is not compulsory if you or your child does not feel comfortable in make up.

 

GIRLS - Basic stage make up consists of: 

        *  Foundation

        *  Blush

        *  Brown/Light Brown Eyeshadow

        *  Eyeliner

        *  Mascara

        *  Lipstick (Red)

 

BOYS - Often boys prefer not to wear stage make up until they are a little older, and it is again, not compulsory.  This is for individual families to decide.  Boys may wear the same as the girls if they choose, or basic stage make up for boys often consists of: 

        *  Foundation

        *  Blush 

COSTUMES, TIGHTS AND SHOES
