Haddon Primary school students do not require a ticket as they will be back stage or sitting together on the third level of the theatre.

Children are required at the back door of the theatre between 6:00pm and 6:15pm . The performance commences 7:00pm and the theme this year is ‘Haddon Hall of Fame’  Each class has been given an artist or /artists and will perform with the artist’s music. We have been fortunate to secure Federation University students, Mr Josh Sanders and Ms Rebecca Koroneos  to assist as our creative directors and choreographers. Josh and Rebecca have worked in consultation with the teachers to select music and have just commenced rehearsal. Sam Griffin, from Soul Studio in Ballarat, will be choreographing the two 5/6  classes and 3/ 4D. Tricia Ryan is in charge of wardrobe and most costumes have been designed and created by Tricia.

A costume and information note will be sent home from each class early next term outlining any additional clothing e.g. blue jeans for boys, suitable footwear, as well as the suggested hair styles of the times.

A $10 concert charged was placed on the booklist. This charge covered most of your child’s costume as well as travel to the theatre for rehearsal. Some families have not paid this charge and it is now over due, please send the $10 per student to the office as soon as possible. The whole school will travel to the theatre for rehearsal during the day of August 21. Permission forms will need to be signed and these will be sent out closer to the date.
