This rehearsal has been planned since September and we are really grateful to all students for giving up their time to finalise work on what will be an amazing show! We aim to finish the blocking, do costume fittings and take production photographs, so all cast should bring costume items, dance shoes, and may want to consider hair and make up for their headshots. Students should also remember to dress warmly and bring lunch and snacks.
