We ask you pay a fee for your rehearsal time to show your commitment to our production team.


The fee for this show is £150.00 

As I’m sure you are aware, here at Barton Court Studios we provide our students with high quality learning. Joining us this year are many qualified Vocal Coaches, Acting Coaches and Dance Coaches. Who help make our shows turn out so wonderful.

As we are not a charity or an amateur dramatics society none of our team are here on a voluntary basis. As part of our team we also have costume and props designers and makers. Who make our shows look great. And we also have our sound engineers and lighting. The venue’s we use to rehearse in have to be maintained and we hire the Forest Arts Centre.

If for any reason you feel you cannot pay the full premium we can accept a deposit of half the amount and the remaining half to be paid prior to the performance.

Please note that if you have to miss 2 or more rehearsals you will not be able to take part. No time wasters please.
