I hope you are well! I wanted to get in touch sooner rather than later to make sure you are aware that in our weekly sessions we are now beginning work on our February show ‘Extra/Ordinary’ which is being performed by members of all of our three Rapport classes and young people from our Single Art Form classes on Saturday 3rd February at 4.30pm and again at 7.15pm at The Sundial Theatre in Cirencester. In order to really get to grips with the creative process we need to know who is taking part! In order to be in the Rapport element of the performance we need the young people to commit to come to Rapport weekly between now and the show and to be available for our additional rehearsal session and performance day:
Additional rehearsal session for Rapport Attendees Only! – Sunday January 21st 2024 from 1pm to 5pm at Holy Trinity Church, Shaw Village Centre, Ramleaze Drive, Swindon, SN5 5PY.
Performance date and times – exact times TBC but you should expect that your young person will be needed from around 10am on the 3rd February till the end of the final performance at around 9pm (we will ensure they have plenty of breaks during the day away from the main theatre space and – weather permitting will take them outside for a breather!). They will need to be able to get to The Sundial Theatre in Cirencester – if this is an issue please do see if you can lift share or speak to us to see if we can put you in touch with other people making the same request.
In order to cover the costs of such a project (performance space, leaders, technical equipment, set and props) we do ask for an additional performance participation fee of £25 which will be collected with your monthly workshop fee in January 2024 if your young person is participating.
Tickets for the event can be purchased here. (n.b you will need to scroll down the page to find out listing and as we have two performances please ensure you click on the correct one for booking).
Please can you confirm by Friday December 1st if your young person is taking part. It is important to stress that they will absolutely be needed for the whole of the performance day for health and safety reasons re performing in the venue. If they can make this BUT can not make the additional rehearsal on January 21st please let us know as we may still be able to involve them – it would just be in a smaller performance role away from what is being rehearsed on that day.
