OD Theatre School on Pause

One last session tonight 19th March 202o then we are on pause for a while…..Online class coming soon……

Cave of Wonders Show CANCELLED

I have been clinging on by my finger tips to everything this past week hoping the world would suddenly be cured so our show could go ahead, even the Genie couldn’t grant this wish……sadly the Thameside Theatre have now closed their doors.

This doesn’t mean the end of Aladdin for us…..we are just going to hover on that magic carpet a short while until we can land on what ever our postponed date may be.

We will not run a dress rehearsal tomorrow Thurs 19th March we will keep the costumes neatly ironed and ready to go when we can.

Theatre school will go ahead Thursday 19th March, I will video all dances/songs and certain sections of the show, which I will send onto you for future home practice, the important thing is we do not lose all the hard work every student, teacher, helper, parent has put into the production so far.

So when the time is right we can pick up where we left off.

I will transfer show tickets automatically to the new date. If any of your party cannot attend the new date, I will offer you a refund.

As you know it’s a day to day, hour to hour situation at the moment, so please don’t hesitate to ask any questions.

I will always update and post news to the website – http://www.occasionaldance.co.uk/theatre-school/news-2/

And Facebook – Occasional Dance  – https://www.facebook.com/Occasional-Dance-151706588329560/

(If you don’t already follow please head over and like the page)

Right I’m going to cry for a short while then pick myself back up and carry on!!

Hope all the children aren’t too upset and sad with this news…..it’s not the end….we are just pausing!

See you tomorrow at Theatre School unless anything changes between now and then.

Thanks

Hall Change 12th March 2020

THURSDAY 12th March 2020 our classes will be held in the GYM at GAYNES SCHOOL.

PARKING
Please park over to the far right of the school carpark, as there are events happening in other parts of the school and they want to keep us completely separate and as much out the way as possible.

Directions to GYM
Enter through the furthest door to the right when looking at the school.
Once inside turn RIGHT
Then LEFT
Then LEFT again
Then RIGHT…..down 6 Steps, walk straight and you’ll find the gym.

Look forward to seeing you all.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
