As you can imagine it is imperative that no one comes in or out without us knowing for safety and security reasons. Only parents on duty will have a backstage pass, which will be given to them on arrival and must be worn at all times. The children can be collected from their dressing room at the end of the show or older children can meet parents outside near the loading bay. Please ENTERvia the backstage door andEXIT via the door to the downstairs foyer to avoid congestion.
Please speak directly to Tracy if your child has any medical needs so I can introduce you to the Nurse or first aider on duty and inform the parent in charge of the class. An action plan is required for every child who has any specific needs.
PLEASE NOTE BACKSTAGE IS A NUT FREEZONE
Extra tickets can be purchased right up until the show at the kiosk, so invite more friends and family for a fantastic concert. ☺. The kiosk is open for drinks and refreshments before and during intermission for every show.
I hope the girls and boys are looking forward to an exciting week, after rehearsals the anticipation
builds and they can’t wait to perform. These are my favorite few weeks in a hard year’s work!
So excited about our LFK performances and the great weekend ahead.
Thank you so much for your support,
Love Tracy and teachers
