Why do we have to pay to be in the show?
Our cast places require payment, as it is set as a school holiday camp theatre style, rather than a theatre that runs all year, with rehearsals each week. The children learn a show in a week and get to perform it within 5 days! The benefit is that every child can have go, rather than having to get cast in an audition process.
