March/April 2017

Rehearsals are going extremely well for our show at The Civic Hall in Bedworth on 30th and 31st May. If anyone is unable to take part in the show, could you please let Donna know as soon as possible.

Congratulations to two of our students on their amazing achievements. Miss Olivia Yeomans has successfully auditioned for a part time role within the Socharo Dance Company, a Bollywood group and the stage school Bodyworks in Cambridge. Miss Georgie Moore has gained a place at Cambridge University. Well done both of you!

Showtime 2017 is going to be held at The Civic Hall, Bedworth on

Backstage help Showtime 2017

Due to child protection procedures, all dressers MUST attend one of the two dressers meetings. These meetings will take place at the village hall on Friday 12th May 5.15 – 6.15pm and Saturday 13th May 2.00 – 3.00pm.

Please could we ask for any parents who are able to attend one of these meetings and would be willing to help with dressing at the show to register your name with Donna. It is really appreciated, and the show is only able to run as smoothly as it does with the help back stage. Unfortunately, if we don’t have enough help we won’t be able to run our show.

 Support Showtime 2017

As the show is getting closer, and we are hoping to make it as successful as possible we are asking for names to be put forward for helping with the following areas:

Front of House – selling raffle tickets and programmes

Raffle – We need help in collecting raffle prizes, and would be really grateful if someone could help with this! All profits from the show are donated to charity. This time they are being donated to Dorothea Ward at the George Eliot Hospital.

 Dads dance Showtime 2017

Calling all dads, step-dads and grandads! Rehearsals start for the dads’ dance on Saturday March 4th from 3.30 – 4.00pm. Please let Donna know if you can join the team!
