Saturday 4th February 2017 @ TACT Registration: 12pm, Auditions begin: 12:15pm, Auditions end: 4pm

You will be required to register and pay your membership fee in full before you will be able to audition. Unfortunately, delayed membership fees cannot be accepted.

You do not need to prepare anything for the auditions – you will take part in a workshop and be asked to showcase your performance ability and talent during the course of the audition session. Please ensure that you wear black clothing, preferably TACT uniform, and trousers/shoes suitable for dance.

MEMBERSHIP FEE / TICKET SALES OBLIGATIONExisting members will now be used to the ticket sales obligation being built into our membership fees. There are two reasons for using this system:

1) It ensures that the children have a large and enthusiastic audience to perform to.
2) Parents can shift the financial burden of a large membership fee, which might be unmanageable, to ticket sales, which they would inevitably be organising in any case.

PAYMENT ARRANGEMENT MEMBERSHIP FEE paid in full on Saturday 4th February 2017 TICKETS, @ £12 each, to be sold by Saturday 1st April

Plan One: pay £38 = 16 tickets to sell
Plan Two: pay £86 = 12 tickets to sell
Plan Three: pay £134 = 8 tickets to sell

By means of an explanation: You pay your chosen membership fee on the day of the auditions on Saturday 4th February 2017 and then buy the tickets allocation (at £12.00 each) from the TACT Box Office before the stipulated date: Saturday 1st April.

Tickets will be on sale from Saturday 11th February 2017.

Please note some important points regarding ticket sales:

1) Tickets are now priced at £12.00 each. Our tickets have been static in price since 2011 and we are now charging between £5-10 less per ticket than most other companies in the West Midlands. We are bringing our charges in line with other companies and ensuring that increasing production costs can be met in order to secure high quality shows moving forward.

2) Tickets cannot be returned or exchanged once they have been purchased. The administrative process of dealing with ticket returns for large casts is particularly complex and time consuming and we simply do not have the capacity to manage this on future shows. Tickets bought through TACT cannot be exchanged or returned to TACT or Oakengates Theatre. This policy will apply to all tickets and all members and we will be asking Pauline, who runs the TACT Box Office, to decline all ticket exchange requests.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to working with you and your child(ren) in the future.
