Are you in our current HIP, HOP or POP or GROOVE crews?
As you know, being a part of a crew is a commitment to continued skill and performance building, and therefore it is expected that you will take part in this show (ps there are plenty of spaces for non-crew members too). As a crew member we know already what cast group to put you in, so no need to audition, however it's integral that you complete the crew member show registration form before the 17th February. Then once the audition day is complete, we will group up crew and non-crew members into the cast groups and let you know what group you are in by the 27th February. So to clarify, you being a crew member guarantees you a spot in the show but your cast group for this show will be different and varied to your crew groups
If successful, there will be a small show fee to take part which will include the cost of a DVD of the final performance, a show t-shirt and rehearsal fees (previous shows this has been a separate cost, to make it easier it' included this year). We take pride at Hip Hop Pop in offering some of the lowest show fees in the area in comparison to other performing arts groups. Producing shows is extremely expensive so therefore we have charge a fee to make producing the show affordable and of course also for the authentic training and expertise all participants receive. Tickets for the show will be available to purchase from April 2019. Costumes will be the responsibility of the cast member to source, however we always keep the specification easy so that it can be accomplished easily and cheaply.
