Theatre Show - April 2020

We have been advised that Rhoda McGaw Theatre is closed for the next few weeks.   Our ‘Level Up’ Show is therefore postponed until further notice.

A lot of work and effort has gone into preparing for the Show, and we are fully committed to still putting on this production as soon as restrictions are lifted.  We continue to seek alternative options and will update you all as soon as we have plans confirmed.

Regarding the next couple of weeks, we will continue to follow Public Health England advice, which is currently for schools to remain open.   Should this change, or the venues (NH and OW Community Centres) close, we will advise you accordingly.    In the meantime, we will continue with our scheduled two week Show timetable.    This will allow consolidation of routines learned, ready for when the Show is able to go ahead, and also for the teachers to film the dancers for choreography purposes.    We would encourage participation if you feel able, although any students showing any symptoms of illness should stay isolated.

Show tickets – Ticket Source have kindly offered to refund all ticket money in its entirety, without charge.  You will see refunds being made shortly.

Costume money – we will keep all costume hire moneys paid.    In the case of any students who are unable to participate in the revised Show date, we will refund their money at that time.

We thank everyone for their attendance on Sunday for the Run-Through, and also for all those who assisted.  This rehearsal was a great opportunity to put the various groups together, and see how it would look on stage.    We do have a couple of items of lost property – a pink water bottle, and a pair of black age 5 leggings.  Do let us know if these belong to you.

Our scheduled date to return after the Easter holidays is w/c Monday, 27th April.   Obviously the situation is unknown at the present time, so we will continue to update you as we get nearer to this date.

In the meantime, we would encourage you to keep an eye on your emails, our website and Facebook page.

We wish you all good health over the coming weeks and months.

Kind regards,

JR team
