My kids are keen to participate – is there an age limit for volunteers?
There is no formal age limit for participation – children may take part at the discretion of their parent/guardian. We recommend reading through “what to expect” to make this decision for, and with, your young person. Participants under 18 years of age are welcome to take part, as long as they are accompanied by a responsible adult. Please list their ages next to their names on the registration form.

I might have to miss a rehearsal, is that OK?
We understand that it is difficult to commit to attendance at rehearsals spanning a seven-week period. Full attendance will ensure that you are as prepared, and confident as possible, to perform. Please endeavour to attend across the full schedule – but let us know if something comes up to prevent your attendance along the way.
