We invite you to participate in our 5th Annual adapted production of
“The Nutcracker: A Starry Night’s Dream” 
at the Norman Rothstein Theatre on December 1st & 2nd, 2018.

The commitment involves:

Sunday, November 25th – Mass Rehearsal 1pm-4pm at 3994 Fraser Street (each class will be assigned a rehearsal time) *this rehearsal is optional

Friday, November 30th – Dress Rehearsal at Norman Rothstein Theatre (JCC) after school

Saturday, Dec 1st & Sunday, Dec 2nd – 2:30pm & 6pm Shows*

*Junior classes will be assigned only 1 day with 2 performances. Intermediate, Senior, and Youth classes will participate in all 4 shows.

Hello VPS Families,

We are excited that almost 180 children will be participating in this year’s production. Please recognize that if your child is in a Junior program, their class will be assigned a performance day and there will be no moving around if a different day works better for you. When you enrolled you were committing to the weekend and we ask that your child stay with their class. Coordinating switcheroos just won’t be possible with this many children who likely have partners and leaders set in their dance choreography.

TICKETS are now available HERE

$10 for Children Under 17

$15 for Adults

Be sure you are purchasing tickets for the shows that your child is performing at as there will be absolutely no refunds or exchanges. You can also purchase tickets in person on Thursdays from 12-5pm and Saturdays & Sundays from 9am-3pm at the VPS studio located at 3994 Fraser St. and at the Nov 25th and Nov 30th rehearsals and at the box office prior to performances.

MASS REHEARSAL – SUNDAY NOVEMBER 25th @ 3994 Fraser St

This optional rehearsal gives your child a chance to feel a bit more confident by running through their dance and pick up your costume so you can come dressed to Dress Rehearsal on November 30th. Your child’s specific rehearsal time is indicated below. Costumes will be distributed on this day.

Have your calendar ready and please read carefully to ensure you have all the necessary information.

 

PARENT VOLUNTEERS! You can sign up HERE! 

The only way to make an event of this magnitude a success, is with the help of parent volunteers – Please do what you can to sign up for at least one volunteer role, even if it is just a quick hour. Many hands make light work! If you sign up to volunteer backstage, you will not be able to watch the show. Parents will not be permitted backstage unless you are signed up for a volunteer duty at that time. We know it may seem scary, but we just can’t have hundreds of parents milling around along with all the children. And lastly as we charge no additional fee to pay for the theatre rental, technicians, insurance, additional instructor hours, etc., we will not be able to give parents tickets for volunteering. If you would like to see the show, you will need to purchase a ticket. We also sell roses to help cover the costs and are a nice way to congratulate your child after their performance.

We are also looking for some good sewers to volunteer adding the finishing touches to costumes. If you can volunteer some time in the evenings, we can put together a bag for you to take home with directions! Many hands make light work!

Thank you so much for your patience as we organize this fun-filled production. We are excited for another fabulous show with our VPS students.

We are really looking forward to this. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via email: info@performingstars.ca

Every class has their own schedule for performances and rehearsals, so please find your child's name below and make note of their performance day and rehearsal times.
