F.A.Q.

Where is the recital?
At Riverbend High School. 12301 Spotswood Furnace Road, Fredericksburg.

 

When is the recital?
Our June Recital “Neverland” will take place Saturday, June 17th at 3:00pm.

Do I need to purchase tickets?
No. Each family paid a recital fee to help with the school rental, backdrop fees, props, etc. Therefore, anyone can come and watch the recital for free!

When does my child need to arrive for the recital?
Everyone needs to arrive, check in, and be in their assigned dressing room by 2:15.

How do I know if my child is in Act I or Act II?

There is a recital order on the bulletin board and listed on the bottom of this page.

 

 

What make-up should my child wear?
Students 8 & younger need to wear a foundation to help with the shine from the lights, mascara, blush, and red lipstick. Students that are older than 8, need to wear foundation, blush, neutral eyeshadow (browns), black eyeliner, mascara, and red lip stick.

 

What should their hair be like?

A list was provided in your folder & one will be posted backstage & it is listed below on this page.

 

 

What if my child has a fast change or needs help with a change?
You are more than welcomed to talk to Ms. Roxanne about that. She will have dressing stations set up backstage. If your child needs help in the dressing room, you can just come back real quick to help and then go back out into the audience to watch.

 

Is there a Dress Rehearsal?
Yes. It is MANDATORY. It is at Riverbend High School on Friday, June 16th. Students in Act I need to arrive at 4:00 to start at 4:30. Students in Act II arrive at 5:30 to start no later than 6:00. If students are in both acts, make sure they bring something to entertain them and some nut-free snacks and water. We are hoping dress rehearsal will be done by 9:00. We may call in some dancers to arrive before the recital on Saturday to rehearse. This will most likely be combined classes and leads. Please check our Facebook page by 10pm Friday, June 16th to see if your child is needed.

Does my child need all of their costumes, tights, shoes, accessories, and hair/makeup done?

Yes. They should wear exactly what they would wear in the recital for dress rehearsal.
