Dear Parents & Caregivers,

An excursion has been organised for students of Years 9, 10, 11 and 12 Dance, Drama, Music and VET Entertainment elective classes to attend the Sydney production of ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.’

The excursion covers a number of outcomes in all 4 courses.  It provides supplementary work for music students in the ‘Music and Technology’ and ‘Theatre Music’ topic areas.  Drama students will develop their ability to appreciate a production from a professional perspective, that is, through the close study of ‘The Playbuilding Process’, ‘Appreciating a Script’ and ‘Developing a Role or Character’.  Dance students will extend their understanding of the Musical Theatre dance unit and VET Entertainment students will be provided an insight of the production process in a professional environment.

In previous years, a limited number of tickets have been available for this combined subject excursion. In order to accommodate the high number of students wishing to attend, a new system has been developed. Any student wishing to attend must pay a deposit of $50 by Wednesday, 1 May 2019. Once numbers have been determined, tickets will be reserved for an appropriate day. A tentative date for this excursion will be on a Wednesday during term 2. The date will be confirmed after tickets have been reserved.

At this point students who have paid a deposit will receive the School Stream notification with Permission Form on Google Classroom containing the performance date, final costing, departure and return times and any other relevant information. Students will have one week to complete the permission form indicating if they will be attending the excursion or are withdrawing from it. Students withdrawing within this week will have their deposits refunded. After this date, refunds will not be possible. The balance of the excursion (final costing less deposit) must be paid two weeks prior to the excursion date.

All deposits should be paid for by the Trybooking link below. We no longer accept cash or credit card at the Student Foyer.

Please contact me at the College if you have any concerns.

When: To be Advised
Venue: Capitol Theatre, Sydney
Deposit: $50 per person (final ticket price to be advised once deposits are taken)

PLEASE NOTE: We are currently trialling a new payment gateway through trybooking for our excursions. Please go to the link below to make payment via Credit Card. A service fee will be added to the booking but PLEASE NOTE we have factored this into the total cost of the excursion and have absorbed this cost. Also note that American Express payments incur a 1.1% charge in addition to the total cost of the excursion.

Yours Sincerely,

Mr Andrew Hudson
