ON THE DAY:
Arrive half an hour before the show starts. Get your child to GO TO THE TOILET! Then, bring your child to the stairs where one of the Limerick School of Acting staff will escort them to a seat in the theatre. Ticket holders will be admitted later (about 10 mins before the show starts)
ALL students will be in our care until the show ends. DO NOT take your child before the end of the show as this could trigger a ‘missing child’ alarm system. When this occurs the show stops until the child is found! Parents can collect their child from the auditorium at the end of the show.
BRING: Students should arrive in costume with a small bag if necessary and refreshments. NO valuables.
Limerick School of Acting does not supply costumes for plays.
We do however try to make it as cheap as possible for you.
We leave it up to you to make, borrow, or hire the costume as you so wish.
