Our Next Theatre Performance at 

Stoke Repertory Theatre 

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that our next theatre performance will take place at Stoke-on-Trent Repertory Theatre, Leek Road, Stoke on Trent, on Friday March 24th and Saturday March 25th 2023. 

You can find out more about the theatre at:

Here are some pictures of us visiting this beautiful theatre this morning. The theatre facilities and backstage areas are amazing.  Jenni and Katie are not sure what to be most excited about! At this point it is possibly the revolving stage, and Shannan is very excited about the air conditioned changing rooms! 

We think that all our dancers are going to love performing here on this fabulous stage. 

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.


Make up

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 !
