As you may be aware, our Key Stage 2 production this year will be Annie. The production is copyright to Joseph Weinberger Ltd and we have needed to pay a substantial licence fee of around £500 to perform the show. The show is in fact a Junior version of Annie as a local theatre company are performing it a week later at the same venue. Tickets will be on sale from Monday 1st July and will cost £6.00 per adult and £3.00 for OAP and Children under 12 years of age. This is slightly more than we usually charge as we also have to give a percentage of the ticket receipts to the licence company. This year’s production costs have also risen and we will be unable to recoup some of those as we are not permitted to film the performances and sell the DVD on to you. This is frustrating as I know many of you enjoy purchasing performances and keep them for posterity. There is no limitation to the number of tickets that families can purchase and it would be encouraging for us to have a full house on both nights not only to help with the cost of staging such a production but to add to the atmosphere for the pupils to perform. I promise you that you will be in for a real treat again this year. Tickets will be allocated on a first come first served basis. I hope that we can rely upon you to support us in the usual manner.
