Will there be a Performance company in 21/22?

We are hoping to bring back our Performance Company offering for students who want an additional performance opportunity than our annual student showcases and Under The Big Top productions. 

We are hopeful that the 2021/2022 season will allow us to reclaim our live performance opportunities. 

When we get the go-ahead we plan to create these additional opportunities on a show-by-show basis. 

Students will no longer have to commit to a full year in order to participate. 

Requirements will be:

Students must be registered in a minimum of 1 full-time class at Spectacle Blue. 

Students and parents must commit to the rehearsal schedule for the production they choose.

Our anticipated performances will be:

Winter Wonderland - September to December commitment

Our second production is still TBD - January to April commitment

Fees and rehearsal times will be announced as we get closer to our September 13 start date. 

Keep an eye on Social and right here for more information as it becomes available. 

Will there be student showcase productions?

We traditionally do 2 student showcases per year.  An Informal Student Showcase at the end of the Fall Semester and our larger full-scale 'Under The Big Top' student showcase production in June.

We hope to be able to house live performances in the studio again in the 21/22 season. 

Tickets for these live performances are $20. 

In the 20/21 season, we continued with student showcases in a modified way due to the Covid-19 restrictions on theatre sittings. If we are unable to have theatre seatings in the 21/22 season we will modify as we did in 20/21.

Performance Company FAQ

What is the difference between the Informal Showcase & the Under The Big Top?


Our Informal Showcase marks the end of the Fall Semester and is an opportunity to showcase the skills students have learned in a creative way. There are no costumes,make-up or hair requirements for this showcase. Students wear their black body suits and leggings for this experiece. The Under The Big Top student showcase marks the end of the season and is a full production including costumes, make-up, hair, full lighting and sound design. Students have typically had considerably more time rehearsing and creating these acts than they do in the Informal Showcase. They have delved farther into the creation process than just a showcasing of their technical skills.




Is there an extra cost to these Showcases?


All costs associated with the showcases are included in your fees including access to the edited video productions. Typically the only extra cost to you is the ticket price, but as we are currently not able to have a theater sittings and are doing video showcases only, there is no additional charge.




Can we see the students perform live?


Typically these showcases are performed live, but with the theater sitting restrictions in place due to Covid-19, there will be no live peformances in the 20/21 season. Should the status of Covid-19 change before the Under The Big Top allowing for a theatre sitting, we will make that decision at that time.
