What should I bring?
It is going to be a long day so please come with hair and make up done. Children please come in your uniform shirts as we have time to practice before we can change into costumes. Since our program is the final one, we will change at a suitable time so we are not waiting in costume for a long time. Ensure children come with drink bottles and snacks if the food provided at the venue is not suitable for them because dinner will be a bit late. Please DONOT forget your costume bags.
