As you know, the Hits show at the Winter Gardens is Saturday December 13, 2014.
Rehearsal – Friday December 12, 2014
Our dress rehearsal time is 5:30 – 6:30 on Friday 12th December. All students need to enter through the backstage/staff entrance which is situated down the alleyway across from the Marks & Spencer collection point. We will be meeting in the bar just inside the staff entrance.
Please arrive between 5:25 and 5:35 at the latest. Last year, a couple of students were late and they missed out on being in the professional photograph – please don’t be late.
Students need to arrive in their new Aztex tops, black leggings/pants and black trainers/dance shoes. Hair & costumes to be accessorized with orange, black & white (2 pigtails for people in Rugrats).
Parents can meet students back in the bar area at 6:30pm.
Show – Saturday December 13th, 2014
Aztex as normal on Saturday at Highfield. We are on in the first half on Saturday night. Students need to meet at the inner stage door by the café in the Winter Gardens between 6:30 and 6:45. Students wishing to watch the 2nd half with us do not have to pay for a ticket. We will escort them up to the balcony during the intermission. Parents need to collect students from the bottom of the stairs leading to the balcony seats at the end of the show. Please provide students with a drink/snack that they can have during the second half as we cannot supervise individuals buying snacks from the Winter Gardens.
If students are not staying for the second half with us, they can be collected at the end of the first half at the inner stage door. Students who want to watch the second half with their parents will need a ticket, which must be purchased from the Winter Gardens. The estimated finishing time is 10pm.
We hope that you will all enjoy participating in this fantastic show and performing on the wonderful Winter Gardens stage. Photographs and vid
eos are available to order in the Winter Gardens foyer on the night of the show.
Aztex Showcase and Awards – Saturday December 20th, 2014
Our Annual Christmas showcase and awards show will be held at Highfield in the theatre. Aztex will be on as normal in the morning. Doors will open for parents and friends at 1:30 and curtain up will be 2:00. Following the showcase we will have a short interval followed by our annual awards presentation.
Aztex will then be closed for 2 weeks (December 27th and January 3rd) and return on January 10, 2015. We would like to wish all of our students, families and friends a wonderful holiday season. We hope that you enjoy the performances and look forward to seeing you in January when we will start our preparations for our 10th anniversary show!
