Changes from 2019
We have decided to make the following changes from our 2019 Gang Show in a Weekend. If your child attended this it is worth checking this to see what is different:
- We will have a dedicated adult whos job it will be is to provide any support to the young people that they may need, this includes medication, home sickness, dealing with stress of the performance etc.
- We are changing the way we rehearse to ensure that we do not have long periods of rehearsing a specific element of the show.
- We will have more separate sleeping arrangements for the younger and the older cast and crew members allowing for the older cast and crew to have a later bed time than the younger ones.
- We will have a onsite cook rather than someone coming in to allow for earlier meal times. We are also going to change the menu to allow for more appropriate meal times.
- The arrival times have changed:
Actors now arrive at 18:00 to allow for more time to get to know the script on the Friday
Tech Crew now arrive with the Backstage Crew on the Saturday at 10:00
- We are reducing the number of tech crew spaces so that each member of the tech crew can contribute more
- We have recruited another adult into the main team to help with the running of the show
- We are looking at more adult support
- We are putting into place a better front of house system ensuring reserved seats are reserved
- To encourage group leaders to come and see the show for every section involved we will give 5 free tickets to that section for their leaders along with information on how to book for the group to come and see the show.
