Show in a Week 2024

Pre-Registration Information

Due to high demand, both registration and the waiting list is now closed.

Stay up to date about our next show registration by joining our mailing list here.

Show in a Week is back this August, and this year we're heading under the sea!

We’re absolutely delighted to be back with our flagship experience, and to once again be performing on the main stage at the Macrobert Arts Centre. The story of The Little Mermaid is familiar to everyone: the adaptation of the hit Disney film 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 principal 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. All rehearsals will take place at Macrobert.

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,  audition info 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 something that is pretty unique and special to Show in a Week.

The Little Mermaid
Sunday 4th February
9am at Victoria Hall, Dunblane Rehearsal Dates: 5th August - 9th August

Performance Dates:
9th & 10th August

Registration open to all those currently in P1–S6.

The fee for Show in a Week this year is £160. 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 ‘Little Mermaid’  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 £130.


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 The Little Mermaid 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.

Show in a Week Senior: Six

We’re aware of how much interest there is for our Show in a Week Senior production of Six.

Although we are not opening registration until May, everyone who will be in S1+ by October and who registers for The Little Mermaid will be guaranteed a space in Six.

No payment will be required at this point and we will be in touch nearer the time with further registration details.

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 2024. 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 May 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.

As always, if you have any questions, just shout!
