Performance updates


Tickets for performances need to be purchased, as most of the audience is family and if families got free tickets we wouldn’t be able to cover our expenses, such as rents, insurance and lighting. Purchasing a ticket supports the SoHum Dancing program, and the Redwood Playhouse. Since parents/guardians need to bring their child to the performance, we suggest that each parent purchase a seat for only one show, then for the show you are not purchasing a ticket, we can usually accommodate those waiting as standing room.

If the cost of tickets is out of your budget, please offer to help in exchange for a seat, as set up and clean up are big projects, and more help makes this go faster. There will be a volunteer ticket exchange sign up sheet at the ticket table.


Dancer arrivals and costumes

Dancers will be scheduled to arrive by class to keep the dressing room from getting congested. Please have your dancer use the restroom before getting on their costume to minimize costumed bathroom trips!

Dancers in pre ballet and Natalie’s classes need to arrive with their hair and make up done, and tights on. They will only need to bring their slippers. They will put on their undertard and costume in a changing tent, and then their hair clip afterwards. Please have a back pack or bag to put their street clothes in and we will designate a table for these by class.

Pre ballet arrive at 12:30

Natalie’s dancers at 12:00 (a slight change)

After getting all ready, the pre ballet dancers will sit in chairs by the kitchen side of the hall. We can also provide chairs for a parent if needed. Natalie’s dancers will wait in the hall by the stage. We will have one or two parents available to be with them until the show starts.

Kathy’s dancers will arrive at 10am to do warm ups, and prepare. Bring a non messy snack and water bottle. They will then wait in the kitchen.


After the show, let’s get out of costumes in reverse order to avoid congestion in the dressing room. Dancers may wait in the auditorium.
