Full Day Rehearsals at Majestic Cinemas and Event Centre Nambour
Wednesday, June 16 – Yellow Cast
Thursday, June 17 – Orange Cast
We have spent the week investigating alternative options for performers in the musical. Please read details below regarding shoes, dance tights or panty-hoses, undergarments and makeup.
MIC has extended the discounted bulk buy of shoes, dance tights and bodysuits to Thursday, June 17 to take advantage of our bulk buy discounted prices, please click here.
All Students – Shoes
A couple of considerations have directed our decisions in relation to the shoes for all performers. Firstly, the venue requires non-marking rubber soles and secondly, students must be safe while moving around the venue.
For this reason, we would prefer students to wear either caramel or hazelnut jazz shoes (either slip on or lace up) or new white canvas rubber soled shoes (either slip on or lace up). We recommend that students wear the jazz shoe option especially if they have a significant dancing role.
Families have the option to either order new jazz shoes via the Schoolzine order form, source second hand jazz shoes, or buy white canvas shoes (such as these ones from Big W). Any students who have not yet had their shoes size fitted, this will be done on Wednesday at rehearsal.
So we can ensure all students have shoes for the show, please complete this form informing us that you have organised shoes.
Cast member’s shoe sizes can be provided to the Creative Team in this document.
Female Students – Dance Tights or Pantyhose
We ask that Senior Primary and Adolescent Community female performers wear dance tights or pantyhose during performances. Junior Primary students have the option to wear dance tights/pantyhose or not.
Dance tights can be purchased through the Schoolzine link. However, there are many places to buy alternative pantyhose including Kmart, Best&Less and eBay. When purchasing somewhere else please choose hazelnut or warm sand colours, with 40-60 denier.
We recommend buying two pairs so students have a back-up pair.
Male & Junior Primary Students – Socks
We ask that all male performers and Junior Primary students wear white ankle socks with no colour or branding.
Female Students – Undergarments
Bodysuits or appropriate modesty wear are recommended for quick changes and being comfortable. To ensure they can’t be seen through costumes, we recommend skin tone and straps that are as slim as possible, and to avoid big branding.
If required, nude or suntan bodysuits can be purchased through the Schoolzine link.
Alternatively, tight fitting beige, suntan or tan singlets can be used, or crop-tops, or bralettes with appropriate underwear are a great alternative. Please ensure the straps are as slim as possible so they can’t be seen underneath the costumes.
Male Students – Undergarments
Males are required to wear light coloured underwear so no dark colours or patterns are seen underneath costumes.
All Students – Make Up
Wearing makeup in performances highlights students’ faces so the light doesn’t wash them out and hollow their eyes. For our Aladdin show, students will be required to wear basic face makeup (foundation, blush, eye liner, mascara and eye shadow). There is no need to go and buy new makeup as we are hoping that families are able to use what they already have at home. We will be providing further details and a make up tutorial closer to the performance date.
We have attached a checklist for families to ensure they have sourced the appropriate items.
A friendly reminder that we require all performers to be measured for costumes. Please fill in this form by Thursday, June 17.
