There will be a NON refundable show fee to cover the cost of the costume (which might be rentals), but also to cover any other costs of putting on a show (chaperone licenses, mics, lights, scripts, props, venue hire…) but it is also considered to be a deposit for participation of the show, so it is non refundable. Once the show fee is paid, we will put your child’s name down for the show, and teach them the routines. Only those who’ve paid a costume will be able to accept a soloist part.
