Calling all Year 5 and 6 parents of Performers!

Want to join our cast for our new Musical Production in December?

See letter below from Ms Carroll...

Dear Parent/Carer,

Ormiston Rivers Academy are proud to present We Will Rock You, the musical, which will take place on the 12th, 13th, 14th and 15th of December 2019 at 7.30pm each evening. As you may be aware, the Academy produces musicals annually, with professional standard lighting, sound, staging, and musicians. This year will be our biggest and best production yet. We are now recruiting for members of our primary support cast who will be featured in three scenes in the show. Students from years 5 and 6 in our local primary schools are welcome to join the cast.

We will not be holding auditions for the primary support cast, but places are limited and we will allocate them on a first come first serve basis. Rehearsals will take place at Ormiston Rivers Academy on the following dates:

Monday 4th November 4pm to 6pm,

Monday 1th November 4pm to 6pm,

Monday 18th November 4pm to 6pm,

Sunday 1st December 12pm to 6pm,

Tuesday 3rd December 6pm to 8pm

We are likely to allocate primary cast members each to a group. Group A will perform on Thursday 12th and Saturday 14th . Group B will perform on Friday 13 th and Sunday 15 th . On evenings that you are allocated to perform, we will expect you to arrive by 6.30pm for registration and warm ups.

Doors to the auditorium will be open at 7pm for family members who have purchased tickets. On show nights, the production will finish at approximately 10pm, when parents/carers will be able to collect their children. Students will need to bring their costumes to rehearsals on the 1st. December and 3 rd December. They will wear all white for one scene (e.g. white trousers, leggings, shorts with a plain white t-shirt or top). They will wear coloured t-shirts (any bright block colours but no logos) with jeans for the other two scenes.

Tickets for the production will be on sale from Monday 4 th November. Seating in the auditorium is allocated so you will be able to select your seats when purchasing. However, demand for tickets is likely to be very high so we would encourage you to purchase your tickets as early as possible to avoid disappointment and to avoid issues with sitting together in groups. Prices are as follows:

 Adults £7.50

 Concessions £5

 Family (2 Adults and 2 Concessions) £23

We sincerely hope that you will be able to take part in our production and look forward to working with you. To take part, please email: [email protected] with the following information:

 Student Name

 School

 Year Group

 Contact Name (Parent/Carer)

 Contact Email Address

 Contact Telephone Number

Yours Sincerely,

Ms S. Carroll

Director (Assistant Principal)
