IT HAS JUST TAKEN US A LITTLE LONGER TO REACH OUR DESTINATION!
We have some super exciting news to share with you about our latest production Destination.
Several performances have sold out and we have had to source an alternative venue which will enable all parents to see their children perform.
And what a venue it is; The Greenwich Theatre. More seats, a bigger stage and better technical capabilities to support our show.
Tickets will be moved over to the new venue and everyone that has bought will receive a like for like seat – you will receive an email in 2 weeks time with your new tickets.
Whilst we get this all organised, Tickettainment will be offline for just a few days and we will relaunch once again where you will be able to purchase your seats, merchandise and show t-shirts (due by 10th May)
You don’t have to wait as long to see your children perform!
The show will be brought forward two weeks earlier. The days and times will remain the same with just a slightly earlier performance date.
Those who are a part of the Resident Team will still be performing at the Hackney Empire on the 16th July but seats are selling fast and we don’t want you to miss out! You will also perform at The Greenwich Theatre too.
As always, if you do have further questions, do not hesitate to ask as we’d always love to help!
This is an exciting time for all of us at Make Believe and we cannot wait for the show!!

We cannot wait to welcome you back and we will update you with a new schedule very soon.
We do not want you to worry. We will organise this for you. Over the next few weeks all our systems will be getting updated and we will provide you with a like for like ticket.
We would be happy to organise this for you. Once the site has been updated email email@example.com and a member of the team will get back to you. You have until Monday 7th March 2022 to update us. Kindly subject the email with the word ‘upgrade’.

Yes – we have closed off some parts of the auditorium and have moved you to a seat for the same or higher value.
Some of our sites are sadly not taking part in this years production however, don’t be upset. Your child has a fantastic opportunity to be a part of this years Resident Team performing at the Hackney Empire. Please click the link for more information: https://www.makebelievegroup.co.uk/be-part-of-the-resident-team/
Your Principal will hand these out four weeks before your child’s performance. We will be automatically be increasing everyone’s ordered size by one. Should you wish for this to be altered, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by 7th March 2022.
We love to welcome new people to our Resident Team. Here is the link to book your child’s audition taking place on 13th March https://www.makebelievegroup.co.uk/be-part-of-the-resident-team/
Tickets start at £15 and depending on what seats you choose the seat will vary in price. There are more choices at the Hackney Empire on the premise of it being a bigger auditorium.
No. There are no additional costs involved in the production. Fees throughout your entire year will remain the same. You are welcome to purchase tickets for your family, friends, teachers, etc.
Rehearsals will take place at the school on a week-to-week basis. You will only be required to attend one additional rehearsal at the Theatre along with the performance that your child is taking part in. If your child is an infant they will only be expected at the Theatre for their actual show.
There is a very slight possibility that the performance time could be altered in line with Government guidelines and any other technical variances that may occur. Should this be the case, we will inform you ahead of the show. Transparency is incredibly important to us and we always invite you to read our terms and conditions that are listed on our website.
No. Students will continue to learn syllabus work and the skills required to become an all-round performer. The material will focus solely on the show that we are working towards.
No. All children are required to make their own way to the venue at their scheduled time.
All of the students will be separated in age groups. They will also be performing in the show with other Make Believe schools. However, they will not be performing at the same time as one another except in the finale number.
Health & Safety and the care of our students is our number one priority. In all of our shows we have DBS checked staff and licensed chaperones working backstage with the entire cast. All information regarding this will be provided nearer the time. Our safety policy is also publicised across our website and we invite you to read this ahead of attending any of our schools, shows and events.
Make Believe do not provide costumes for their cast. All school students are required to purchase a show t-shirt for £15. This is all they will need to take part in the show. T-shirts can be purchased via our website. The deadline for this purchase is April 1st 2022. After this date, the T-shirts will increase in price by £5.
This will be made clear in the Technical Schedule at least two months prior to the show.
No. You can buy as many tickets as you wish and the more support the students have the better. Purchasing tickets also supports charities that benefit from the Make Believe Foundation.
