A CELEBRATION OF DANCE 2018

ARRANGEMENTS FOR “CELEBRATION OF DANCE”, CONCORD COLLEGE, ACTON BURNELL, ON SATURDAY JUNE 30TH, 2018

Please will all performers arrive at Concord College at 10.00 am on Saturday June 30th.

For those of you who haven’t been to Concord before, the College is situated in the village of Acton Burnell, which is about 7 miles from Shrewsbury. For satnav users the postcode is SY5 7PF. As you approach the village from Shrewsbury take the first turning on the left and the college entrance is along this road on the right. Approaching from Longnor and Frodesley turn left in the centre of the village then next right, and the college entrance is on the right. Go up the driveway and round to the left of the main College building, then left again alongside the tennis courts. The theatre is on the right with some limited parking.

I will be running a full technical rehearsal during the morning. (Parents/carers of younger children feel free to stay in the theatre during the rehearsal.) Please send plenty of drinks (no glass bottles or cans) and refreshments. The rehearsal will end at approximately 1.00 pm when the children are to be collected. (Performers aged 10 years and above are welcome to stay all day if they wish – so please send a packed lunch.)

May I offer a suggestion regarding food and costumes? Could all children taking part in the performance have something substantial to eat at home before returning to Concord? Once the children are in costume I would rather they didn’t eat (especially chocolate!). I will provide plain biscuits and water.

Please will all performers return to the theatre at 4.30 pm for make-up, with their hair brushed and ready (half-up, half-down).

There is a half-hour gap between when the children are dropped off and when the doors open – please bear with us during this time! Everyone attending the performance must show their tickets (or purchase them) at the main entrance after the doors open at 5.00 pm. Drinks will be available from 5.00 pm and the performance starts at 6.00 pm. Children not taking part in the second half of the programme will be welcome to sit in the auditorium and watch. I would like them to return to the stage for the finale, if possible!

The raffle will be held during the interval. PLEASE, any raffle prizes you can donate would be most welcome.

I estimate the evening will end at approximately 8.30 pm. During the performance Heather and Charles of Microvideo will be filming and Jenny Edmiston will be taking photographs – I am sure you will agree with me that they always create a wonderful ”memory” of our Celebration of Dance. Request forms for the photographs taken by Jenny will be available in the foyer.

At the interval and at the end of the evening please do not come backstage, but wait in the corridor – there will be several teachers and helpers present. When the children are ready to be collected they will be brought to you.

DON’T FORGET TO BRING:

• REFRESHMENTS
• HAIRBRUSHES
• HAIR CLIPS
• WHITE UNDERWEAR
• DRAMA PUPILS – ALL PROPS REQUIRED FOR YOUR PIECE
• NAMED BAG FOR HOME CLOTHES
• YOUR SMILES!

ALL ITEMS BROUGHT MUST BE CLEARLY NAMED.

PLEASE, NO VALUABLES AND NO JEWELLERY TO BE WORN … AND NO NAIL VARNISH!!

Tickets are still on sale and can be bought either directly from me or from Burway Books, Church Stretton. Tickets will also be available on the door from 5 pm. Prices are £7 for adults and £3.50 for children.

Thank you for your kindness and support – the children have been working so hard (as have all my wonderful teachers) to create what I hope will be a memorable 10th “Celebration of Dance”.
