Artemis Annual Christmas Show 2012

9th December 2012

Show Details

Sunday, 9 December, 2012

The Artemis end of term Christmas show will include all group classes performing their hard work from over the last year.

This show will be held at Bracknell and Wokingham College.

Rehearsals will be on Saturday 8th December, with two performances on Sunday 9th.

 

This year, as in previous years, we will do two performances, however, unlike in previous years, not all classes will appear twice. This is because the volume of material to be shown by the groups is so large, it would mean a show almost four hours long! So we have split the classes across two shows (with one or two exceptions who appear in both). 

 

Tickets will go on sale shortly (half term) - we will email a link and order forms in a couple of weeks so parents and friends can book. Tickets include a programme.

 

Participation - We need to know urgently (if you haven’t already said) about anyone in any of the groups who can’t attend either the rehearsal or show. We MUST provide understudy cover in performance pieces for any missing students, and this needs at least a half a terms rehearsal. 

 

Rehearsal:

Where: Bracknell and Wokingham College (2 mins from Artemis).

When: Saturday 8th December

Time: See schedule (handed out in class, and emailed). Copies available in the lobby or by email. 

 

Performers must arrive on time, and if they have a uniform, wearing it. All costumes will be supplied for you. The college is locked and access will only be during change over times between rehearsal groups, so arriving on time is essential. Please bring snacks and drinks to last the session, these can only be consumed in the cafe area (which will be closed), not in the main hall. Parents, unless they are part of the licensed chaperone team, are not permitted to stay. ALL performers must be signed in and out (or sign themselves in if they are 16 or older). 

 

 

SHOW DAY:

Where: Bracknell and Wokingham College (2 mins from Artemis).

When: Sunday 9th December

Time: See schedule (handed out in class, and emailed). Copies available in the lobby or by email. 

 

Students in the 12.00pm show MUST ARRIVE and SIGN IN at 11.15. Please do not leave children earlier than this - there will be no chaperones on hand and the hall will be locked! Collection is at 1.30.

 

Students in the 2.45pm show MUST ARRIVE and SIGN IN at 2.00. Please do not leave children earlier than this - there will be no spare chaperones on hand as staff will be signing out children from the first show. Collection is at 4.30.

 

Students appearing in both shows - should stay between performances and bring a packed lunch with them (please do not buy hot food from MacDonald’s etc and bring it in, as we will not have sufficient chaperones to leave the students to go and collect this from you at the lobby).There will be no cafe open in the college and we need to keep all performers with us as it is a short turnaround between shows. All performers will have an hour for lunch between shows. Please double check you have sufficient drinks for the day, this is very important!

 

As always, under 16’s will be on licence, so ONLY licensed chaperones may be in the children’s backstage area before, during or after a performance. If you are or would like to be a chaperone, call Gemah urgently and she can put you in touch with the correct people at your local council (it takes 8-10 weeks for a CRB to come back). We always welcome volunteer chaperones, it is a nice way to see what your children get up to behind the scenes!
