Wizard DVD’s

Hi,

Some of the recently distributed DVD’s are apparently faulty. I have been in touch with Wizard who apologised and explained that they appear to been sent a faulty batch of blanks by their suppliers.

A considerable number of people have not yet collected their copies – they are available at all 3 studio venues. (You will need to sign on collection).

Please watch and check that both Act 1 and Act 2 are ok, if not, return them labelled with your name and ‘faulty’. They will then be returned and replaced.

Thank you for your patience.

Anita Murray

Amended provisional time table Chorley School as from Sept 3rd 2016

Hi,

The forthcoming September time table has proved very difficult to organise. Please see below the amended version — being sent out 26.08.16 — please ignore anything that was published before this date.

It is clear from the amount of queries coming through that some people are unsure of the grade that they are in. This is completely understandable as we went straight from exams into show work. In order to clarify things I have included the show number that pupils were in alongside the provisional times.

Please note that this is provisional only, if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me either via the website or mobile.

Dress rehearsal 26.06.16

Hello. A huge thank you to the team of Mums who helped sell tickets on priority sales day — very much appreciated!!  As published previously, the dress rehearsal for the forthcoming ‘Hooked on Dance 2016’ will take place at St. Michael’s High School, Astley Rd. Chorley PR71RS on Sunday 26th June 2016 at 11.00am prompt. Access to school will be available from 10.00am.

Details for rehearsal schedule on Saturday 2nd July will be available then via a notice that can be copied / photographed.

Sunday 3rd July is our open dress rehearsal at 2.30pm — (this means it is classed as a performance which is open to the public) — there will not be any tickets / numbered seats available — all seats are £5 payable on the door only, i.e. first come/first served basis. There will be a rehearsal of the Finale at 12.30 prior to ‘curtain up’. All involved should attend please. Initially there was to be a charge of £2 to cover the hire of school and staff wages for this rehearsal but in view of the costs you have all incurred for costumes etc. – this will now be taken out of proceeds.

Thank you to all concerned — here’s to another success!!
