Commonly Asked Recital Questions:

What is showcase?

Showcase gives the dancers the opportunity to exhibit their skills and provide as professional a

stage setting as possible under the direction of instructors who are professionals themselves. The

reward of being involved is a phenomenal highlight for their year of hard work. Performing

promotes teamwork, confidence and poise. Showcase is a professional, safe environment for

them to share thier growth with friends and family.

Where is showcase?

Theater Dress rehearsal and showcase are at Marian High School.

Do I have to go to dress rehearsal?

Yes, all students participating in recital must be at dress rehearsal. This is an opportunity for your

student to become comfortable with the stage. There also may be last minute instructions that can

only be addressed at dress rehearsal.

What is check-in?Check in is the time that you are your student is required to be in the building at the check in

table. Your student will then be taken back to the dressing room area.

What does my child need when arriving at the theater?

All Students must arrive at the theater with hair and make-up done. Pink tights and shoes must be

worn with all costumes and kids should arrive underdressed in these clothes. If it is warm

outside, costumes may be worn into the theater.

Can I watch the dress rehearsals from the audience?

No, we want to keep the children focused and on task. Parents & siblings taking photos etc. is

too distracting and therefor slows down our process.

What do I do after I’ve dropped of my child for an onstage rehearsal?

Every time your child arrives at Marian you will need to check them in with HCD staff, who will

be in the lobby of the auditorium.

Can I take videos or photographs

We are providing a professional videographer so there will be NO filming the performance. This

professional video is part of your Showcase fee, so you will have a great quality video to watch

your dancer. NO flash photography! It is dangerous to the dancers. You may take photos Before

& after the performance is welcome!

If I’m not backstage, who will help my child change?

There will be a number of assistants back stage to help. Your help backstage is not needed. For

the safety of the children, no one except dancers and staff will be allowed backstage.

Can I take my student out after they perform?

Please remember that our recitals are only about 1 - 1 & 1/2 hours. This will be decided after the

final show order has been determined

Why does everyone attending have to have a ticket?

Due to fire codes, each person must be accounted for and the space cannot exceed its seating

capacity. Each seat holds a value and in order to keep prices down we must charge for each seat

regardless of age.

Should I bring my small child to the performance?

Please be advised that the lights and noise can scare small children and many times parents with

little ones spend most of the show in the lobby because it is just too much. Every member of the

family is always welcome so if you think your little one will enjoy the show, the more the

merrier! If the child will not sit on your lap, a ticket is required.What if I have a family member who needs wheel chair or walker seating?

When buying your tickets there will be ADA seating available

How many tickets can I buy?

Each family is give 2 tickets as part of your child’s Participation Fee. Additional tickets will be

available for purchase for your child's assigned performance.
