Last night of show presentations

Hi everyone, only one more show to go! It’s been a good run up to now and audiences have loved it. I would like to say a huge thank you to all parents, children and staff for all their hard work to make another success!

All ‘in house’ presentations will take place in the Gym at 6.15pm. If you would like to see or be part of this please be there at that time.  So as not to keep people behind any longer than necessary, the only presentation to take place on stage will be to the Mayor of Chorley.

Any Senior girls who are attending the after show party — please do not use school premises to start re- doing make up, straightening hair etc. as we do have to leave the building as quickly as possible. Can I also ask that everything is left as tidy as possible in all areas. 

Enjoy the last night!! As I always say, if you enjoy it the audience definitely will!!

Many thanks for your continued support.

Anita Murray

Openng Night!

Well, here we are folks, all the hard work by the children, and especially the staff has now been done! 

We open tonight and I’m sure it will all be brilliant — the dress rehearsal went really well, everyone looked beautiful in the costumes made by Michelle and her team, and it will be so much better for you now that you will have a ‘real audience’!.

All the very best of luck to you all and remember to enjoy it! If you are enjoying yourselves, the audience will too! 

Lots of love to you all,     Anita Murray

Curtains Up – nearly!

Hi all,

Just to let you all know we are in classes as normal this Saturday. Dress rehearsal is this Sunday, 1st of July from 10.00am at St Michael’s. Please bring all costumes and accessories.

Next week on Friday 6th July we will have another dress rehearsal from 4.00pm at St Michael’s. This will take place instead of the Saturday classes on the 7th.

Please make sure that you arrive at about 5.45 before each show.

Make up will be needed. A decent base, blusher, red lipstick, eyeliner and blue eyeshadow.

Tinies – hair in pigtails

Primary and grade ones – Two french plaits for tap and jazz, for ballet grade ones will need a bun.

Grade 2 ballet – Dutch plait across the front of the head and into a bun. For their modern dance just take the bun out and put into 2 low pigtails with the red ribbon.

Primary ballet doing Moana will need white knickers over their tan tights.

Older students I think are sorted with how they’re having their hair.

Please make sure all hair accessories are gripped in tightly. Especially the wigs for Trolls!

Hope you’re all looking forward to the show, I’m sure it’ll be fantastic.

Thanks everyone
