We are pleased to announce to our students and families our Summer Show for 2020. The first half of the show, Alice in Wonderland, will be mostly ballet. The second half, Get Up And Dance, will be a showcase of other dance styles.
There will be two performances of the show on Saturday June 13th. The 1:00 performance will feature our Edinburg students and at 5:00 our Winchester students will be featured. Some older students will be in both performances. The venue will again be Skyline High School, Front Royal.
If you would like your student to take part in this show, please fill out and return our Performer Agreement and a costume order form, by January 21st if possible. All performers must be registered and active students at Italia Performing Arts, now or by February 1st. They must also agree to attend monthly rehearsals, and the dress rehearsal on Friday June 12th – see the rehearsal schedules available at our studios.
The only cost involved is purchase of a costume, and of show tickets for family members. This year we are asking most of you for full payment for costumes by January 31st, as we are ordering many of them from a company which requires full payment with orders. Only families purchasing more than two costumes will be allowed extra time to pay.
NEW AND IMPORTANT: In previous years we have struggled to find enough volunteers to help at the show. So this year we are making it a requirement that for each performer a parent, or other adult family member, takes on a volunteer role at the dress rehearsal or one of the performances, or in preparation for the show. For those unable to volunteer, we offer an alternative of making a donation of at least $50 to Italia Performing Arts Institute (a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization) to support the performing arts in the Shenandoah Valley.
We look forward to having your student performing with us for our main show of the year.
