Concert Update – 21st September 2013

Hi Lovely Families,

We are fast approaching our Concert, it is Saturday the 21st September 2013 at the Octagon Theatre, University of Western Australia…. exciting and a little scary for me as there is still so much to do!

Costume Funds:  All costume funds need to be paid by this week, 27th and 28th August 2013.  Costumes are well underway and I am extremely happy with what I have seen so far.  Jill Ainsworth from Bear-E-Sensuals is doing a marvellous job once again.  Please let me know if you are having problems submitting your costume funds.

Concert Tickets:  Concert Tickets are officially on sale.  They are selling quickly so please have your ticket orders in as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.  Please note, we will be selling tickets up to the full dress rehearsal on the day of the concert, however, I envisage that they will be sold out prior to this date.  There will be no door sales.  Please remember that there is a 5 ticket minimum per family to cover the costs of hiring this amazing venue.

Raffle Prizes/Donations:  As most of you know, every year we hold a Raffle during the concert.  Could we ask that all families bring in donations towards these raffle prizes which can be brought in to class any time now.  All proceeds from this raffle goes towards our Annual Christmas Party where all dancers receive a gift from Father Christmas.  The dancer’s absolutely love this Christmas Event and I look forward to being able to put it on again this year.  Thank you in advanced for your very generous donations (going on previous years!!) – we generally end up with approximately 10-14 Hampers that are full of amazing donated items.

Concert DVD and Still Photography:  Once again, we will be producing a DVD of our Concert.  Paul Frisina has kindly “volunteered” to do this again for us!  Attached is the DVD order form.  Please complete and return with the $25.00 if you would like to order a copy.
