Rehearsal Schedule

All classes will be rehearsing on either Thursday 22nd or Friday 23rd June at Burrinja Theatre in Upwey. There will be no Ruccis classes on these days and they are not included on your invoice.

Each class has 10 minutes allocated to them. Timing is tight so please arrive 10 minutes before your start time (and in costume if able) so coaches know when their whole class is ready and can go over the act and a quick warm up if needed. 

Please allow 10mins either side of your scheduled time.

Production FAQs

What is the name and theme of this year's show?

The show is called Get Wild! and will Feel like you are watching a nature documentary with a circus spin.

When and where are the shows?

The shows (and rehearsals) will be held at Burrinja Cultural Centre (351 Glenfern Rd, Upwey) and there will be 4 performances across Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June 

What if my student can't make the performance, or doesn't want to perform?

Production term is a great opportunity for students to share with their family and friends all the skills they have been working on at Ruccis, however if a student is unable to attend, please let your coach know as soon as possible. They will still be able to work on skills and a performance in class.

What time do students need to be at the theatre for the show?

The call time for shows is 1 hour before showtime. (8:30am for morning shows, 1pm for the afternoon show, and and 5:30pm for the evening show). This is to ensure students have enough time to warm up properly, touch up hair and makeup with their group, and go over any last minute changes. This applies to both child and adult performers.

Where do I drop off my student (or myself as an adult student!)

Parents will need to sign in their student at the dressing rooms – enter through the main foyer at Burrinja where we will have someone to sign you in (adult students don’t need to sign in but they must find their coach who will be upstairs in the Lyrebird room). Parents are welcome to stay with their student backstage until the show starts.

When/where do I pick up my student?

You can pick up your student from the same place that you dropped them off, all student performing before intermission must be picked up by their parent/guardian at intermission.

I'm in Troupe with a solo - when am I rehearsing/performing?

These times will all be worked out during Troupe classes and communicated with you by the Troupe coaches.

What time do we need to come in for tech rehearsal?

As per the tables above, each class has been allocated a day and time to rehearse at Burrinja between 4pm and 9pm. Each class has a specific tech rehearsal time, with kids classes allocated earlier time slots and adult classes allocated later time slots.

The timing will be VERY tight so students who are late may miss their rehearsal.

What if i can't make the tech rehearsal?

These tech rehearsals are important to familiarise yourself with the stage, ensure aerial equipment is at correct heights, lighting is not in performers eyes and checking other safety precautions. Let your coach know as soon as possible if you won’t be able to make the rehearsal.

If you are late or miss your slot, you may not be able to rehearse, but you may be able to watch other acts to see how the show will run.

Do we need to buy tickets for our students that are performing?

No – younger students will perform in the first half of the show. At intermission, you can pick them up and they can watch the rest of the show in the spare seats at the back of the theatre where we will have a supervising coach.

However, if you would like your student to sit with you in the audience, you will need to purchase them a ticket with yours.

Older students can use the spare seats to watch the first half of the show.

Does my student need a costume/make up?

Each coach will discuss with their class what costume and make up is required. This may involve purchasing, borrowing or creating items, as well as basic stage make up or face painting (we will do any face painting!). A sheet with costume information specific for your class will be sent home in a couple of weeks.

Do we need to pack food for performers?

As it will be a few hours between arrival and the end of performance, students should pack a water bottle and a nut-free snack to tide them over. Nothing too heavy before a performance!

Can I take photos of the show?

There will be strictly no photography in the theatre. We will have professional photographers and a videographer attending so there will be photos and a video available to purchase next term.

Can I purchase show tickets at Ruccis?

All ticket sales are through Burrinja. You can purchase tickets (when they’re on sale) online, in-person through their box office, or over the phone by calling 9754 8723 (Tues – Sat 10am – 2pm).
