SHOWCASE FAQs

HEALTH & SAFETY

Q. What should I do if my child is sick before or on the day?

We know how disappointing it would be for a performer to become unwell on or before the big day - especially given they have all worked so hard! We ask however that you think of the other families, and please ask you to keep your child at home - as difficult as that may be.

PRE-EVENT

Q. What can I do to help my child get ready for the Showcase?

Every child is likely to go through a range of emotions leading up to the event including excitement and perhaps nervousness. There has been a lot of preparation leading up to the event and we have talked about what to expect during our classes. Having the performers there to do a rehearsal and get familiar with the space - stage, lighting, is all part of the preparation to help them feel comfortable and confident. 

 

As a family, the best support is ensuring your child has a good nights’ sleep beforehand, a healthy breakfast in the morning with snacks and lunch for the day and that they arrive on time.

Please send your daughter to showcase with her hair done and as much of the makeup as possible (no lipstick) as per photo day.  Each group have time allocated in their schedule for hair and make up touch ups. 

ON THE DAY

Q. Do I need to collect / bring the costumes?

No - all costumes will be ready for the performers on the day, back stage. The costumes must also not be taken home.

Q. Who do I contact if I'm running late or can't find the venue?

Please contact your group's Chaperons.  Jess will not be contactable in the morning as she will be busy with stage rehearsals and lighting prep. 

Q. Can I take photos during the Showcase? Any do’s and don’ts?

The performances will be videoed and there will be professional photos available to be purchased. There is strictly no recording on personal devices permitted and no flash photography. We encourage you to be present, in the moment and enjoy the show!

We want to avoid distractions for the performers while they are on stage, so we ask families to support them by watching and applauding at the end of each routine. Cheering and waving during the routine can throw the performers’ focus and there will be plenty of time to celebrate their beautiful performance after the show!

Q. What time should we arrive for the Showcase?

Performers and their supporters have been given their schedules for arrival, rehearsals and getting ready. For friends and family in the audience, we suggest you arrive at 12.15pm, ready for the Showcase to start at 12.30pm. The Showcase will finish by 3:30pm.

 

Q. Where can I park?

There is limited parking at the school.  Here is some info on the Raye Freedman website on parking and finding the venue
