The dates for each programme are:

From Go to Woah 1

Monday 1 October  - Friday 5 October 2018 - Space Pirates

  WINNER! 2015 Children’s Musical Theatre Festival, NYC  ✩

Pirates! Aliens! Space Travel! Space Pirates tells the story of Gabby, a kid who gets picked on during a school trip to the museum. Everything quickly changes when an alien space ship accidentally beams Gabby and her classmates up to outer space. Things go from bad to worse when the alien space ship is suddenly attacked by SPACE PIRATES! It’s only after this whirlwind space adventure that Gabby becomes comfortable in her own skin, and her classmates appreciate her for who she is.

From Go To Woah 2

Monday 8 October – Friday 12 October 2018 - Press Start

 PRESS START transports us inside the bright, pixelated world of video games! When the famous characters we know and love run out of lives, they decide to put on a musical fundraiser that will help them raise gold rings and play on.Through hilarious and heartfelt musical numbers we see the heroes, villains and sidekicks like we’ve never seen them before. But when things go terribly awry, it’s the quiet sidekick Little Mushroom who must find the hero within to help save the day!

Each week we will perform a different show from scratch, which you are invited to watch on the Friday of each week. 

Performance times on the Fridays are 2.00 p.m. and 4.30 p.m. These shows are open to families and friends of the cast member.

There is no charge to audience members.

A form will be sent out mid-week of each programme asking for an indication of numbers of audience members so we can ensure we have enough space and seating.

Every child will be actively involved in all aspects of the show – singing, dancing, prop making, set design, costume design and creating of set and costumes. There will be opportunities to audition for lead parts and ensemble.

Our team consists of:  Susanne Dell, Director of CMTS and Director of the shows and Lynnette Leggett, Director of CMTS and Musical Director of the shows.

We will have a number of past students as interns to help work with the children. The choreographer position and artist design position will be confirmed soon. We will always have a certified first aid member of staff on the premises at all times.


How old does my child have to be to attend?

For the October holiday camp we take children from 7 years to 12 years. 

What does my child need to bring each day?

CMTS will provide fruit for morning and afternoon teas. Your child needs to bring a packed lunch and any extra snacks you may like to pack for them. The children have regular break times. A drink bottle is essential. Only water is allowed.

 What does my child need to wear?

Comfortable clothes for dancing and moving in – so no jeans. Layers are ideal as the children will be moving around a lot. If your child has jazz shoes, then they are good, otherwise any other shoes that are good for dancing and moving in. 

As the children will be creating props and using paints please make sure the clothing they wear allows for 'messy' work. Above all your child must be comfortable.

Do we have to pay to see the performances?

No. This time is for your child to perform in front of her/his family and friends and be proud of the work she/he has worked so hard at during the week.

My child has never done anything like this before, is that OK?

CMTS prides itself on introducing stagecraft to children between the ages of 7 and 12. We take children of all abilities, both experienced and learners and help them discover the joy of live theatre.

Can I drop my child off earlier than 9am?

Unfortunately we are unable to have children earlier than 8.45a.m. for a 9.00a.m. start as we will be meeting with our camp staff from 8.00 am – 8.45am

Friday is a long day. What about dinner?

CMTS will provide pizza for the children between the shows. If your child has any dietary needs, please let us know on the enrolment form.
