Show in a Week is back this August with lost boys, pirates, mermaids and more.
We’re absolutely delighted to be back with our flagship experience and to once again be performing on the main stage at the Macrobert. The story of Peter Pan is familiar to everyone - this version, composed by Stiles And Drewe is an amazing show with incredible music and lots of scope for all our cast from the tiniest through to our teens and beyond.
Children will rehearse 10am – 5pm, Mon – Fri (some principals parts may be invited back to additional rehearsals in the evenings) and perform in 3 performances of the full show on the Fri/Sat at the Macrobert. At the moment, we are hoping to rehearse Mon – Wed in Dunblane (venue tbc) and then move to the Macrobert Thu – Sat, however given the complexities of arranging such a large-scale show, that may change slightly. Full details will be confirmed asap to those registered.
Once registered there is no requirement to audition – everyone will play a full part in the show, however for those wishing to audition for solo roles etc, information will be given out at registration. As ever with Show in a Week the cast will be a mixture of our experienced professional adults, teens, and young people where we can. The experience of being part of such a large, varied and supportive team is pretty unique and special to Show in a Week.
The fee for Show in a Week this year is £155. The fee includes:
- Full time supervised training in music, dance and performance during the times above.
- Participation in complete performances with lights, makeup, band etc on stage at Macrobert.
- Personalised ‘Peter Pan’ t-shirt
- Full photo pack containing individual professional promo photo, digital copies of all rehearsal / on stage photos and an A3 souvenir poster showing the entire cast.
For those who have more than one child taking part, subsequent siblings will be charged at a reduced rate of £125.
Now more than ever, we strongly believe that cost should not be a barrier to participation and will always, where needed, offer payment in instalments, fee reductions, or fully funded places. If you would like to speak to us about cost, just drop us a message.
If you need to withdraw from the show for any reason, fees for Peter Pan can be refunded in full before the 1st of June, and by 50% before the 17th of July. After this point, we will have incurred significant costs relating to your child’s space, and are unlikely to fill their space in the cast, so the fee is non-refundable beyond this date.
Backstage Roles at Show in a Week
We are not yet in the position to confirm how many (or if) backstage roles will be available for Show in a Week 2023. We are working with both the Macrobert and the RCT Production Team to identify the technical needs for the show and would hope to be able to confirm this by the end of the March.
If you’d like your child(ren) to be considered for a backstage role, please complete the interest form, which is now open. We will then contact you in April to let you know if a space is available and how to register. To avoid confusion, please only add children whose preferred first choice is to join the backstage crew. If your child prefers to be on stage but does not get a place at registration, there will be a backstage option available to select on the waiting list.
Please be aware that only those heading into S1 or above will be considered for a backstage role.
