Studio S Theatre Shows
Many of the families who have bought their children to Studio S since the pandemic have sadly, not yet had the opportunity to experience a Studio S live performance in the theatre.
Our theatre shows are wonderful occasions, very much loved by our performers of all ages and by our audiences. We thought it would be nice to post a few pictures of previous Studio S shows on this page over the coming weeks, which we hope will bring back wonderful memories for all those who were involved, and to give those who have joined Studio S during the pandemic some idea of what they can look forward to!

COSTUMES, HAIR AND MAKE UP
We do not charge for performance costumes.
We appreciate that the costs for professional dance costumes can be considerable, and we strongly feel that every child should have the opportunity to perform. Instead, we provide costumes at no cost to our customers, but we ask that everyone who can, contributes to our ‘Costumes Raffle’. We ask that raffle prizes are donated, however small, and we sell tickets at both performances, with the raffle being drawn by the children after the interval on the Saturday evening show. Our raffle does not entirely cover the costs of our costumes but makes a significant contribution.
What to Wear
We ask that children arrive dressed in the following clothes and then show costumes can be worn over the top of them:
• Plain black leggings or track suit bottoms
• Plain black vest top or T shirt
• Comfortable trainers with socks
• Ballets and tap dancers; please bring ballet and tap shoes (named please) on all three nights.
• Dancers cannot perform in any clothing bearing a logo. Studio S does not keep a stock of plain black clothing but basic supermarket clothing is more than adequate.
• It is important that all other clothes worn by children are named, particularly Studio S T-shirts and hoodies, as there are often lots of clothes left behind at the theatre.
Hair below collar length:
Hair for the Dress Rehearsal: must be tied back
Hair for shows: Children must arrive with either two French plaits, OR with washed, brushed hair in good time for Studio S staff to plait it.
We do not apply typical stage make up to any Studio S children. We do however, apply a minimal amount of lip gloss, blusher and a lot of glitter! This is something that the children really enjoy. Please let us know well in advance if you do not wish your child to have any make up / glitter applied.

Child Protection and Safeguarding
We comply with the requirements of all relevant bodies in terms of safeguarding and are regularly audited by the relevant licensing authorities in Staffordshire and Cheshire.
Our objective is always to keep Studio S children safe and happy. We have a team of licensed Chaperones who will provide entertainment for the children backstage, and the children often find this element of taking part in a theatre performance very enjoyable.
Parents / Carers will be asked to sign their children in to us on arrival, and to sign them out at the end of the performance. This will, inevitably, involve standing in a queue, and we must request that no member of the audience leaves their seat before the curtain closes at the end of the performance in order to be the first in the queue. This disrupts the performance for those taking part and those in the audience.
The children understand the reasons for this, and we hope that parents / carers will too.
Please support us in all the measures we take to keep your children safe !
Dancing is hungry and thirsty work!
All those performing should arrive with the following:
• A light meal – similar to a typical packed lunch
• Several snacks
• A water bottle with the childs' name on.
The Management of Audley Theatre do not permit any photography by the theatre audience. We will take informal photographs of the children on stage during the Dress Rehearsal and in other areas back stage which do not include dressing room areas. We will make our pictures available at the Studio to families for viewing and / or purchase. By completing the Consent Form, you automatically give permission for your child to be included in Studio S photographs, please tell us in writing before the Dress Rehearsal if you do not wish for images of your child to be used for Studio marketing purposes / social media posts.
WE DO APPRECIATE THAT ITS HAS TAKEN US QUITE SOME TIME TO PRODUCE SHOW PHOTOGRAPH ALBUMS PREVIOUSLY FOR WHICH WE APOLOGISE.
THE PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM FOR THIS SHOW WILL BE AVAILABLE ON MONDAY APRIL 20TH
