Furthermore, it's time to start rehearsing! The chorus sign-up and first rehearsal day will be on Sunday 15 September 14:00 - 16:00 at the AATG Warehouse.

Happily Every After's enthusiastic production team (below) will take you through what it means to be a part of the chorus with a journey through the script, the songs, and the director's vision. Whether you're joining the chorus as a new member, the youngest of the litter, or as a whole family - everyone is welcome! Please sign up in advance via the AATG website!

Lastly, putting on a pantomime is a mammoth task and we need as much help as we can get. We need people of any standard who can paint, sew, crew, craft, build and construct. If you would like to be involved in any of these areas, please contact Emma de Moel and she will point you to the right department.

Want to get creative? Join our set design and creation open day!

Would you like to learn more about stage design? Are you a little artistic or creative? Like to use your initiative - or a paintbrush and screwdriver - and build stuff? Maybe you could help create new IT techniques for stage design and build?

Then come to the AATG's Set Design and Creation Open Day between 12:00-15:00 on Sunday, 29 September at the AATG Warehouse (de Star 5, Leidschendam). A delicious mezze lunch will be set out at 12:00 for nibbling through the day. 

Hang out with the mighty band of creative men and women who build our great sets (AKA the elves) and find out more. And maybe stay, roll up your sleeves and play for a while...

Unfortunately, the make-up workshop that was to be hosted in the Paradijs Theater in the Koninklijke Schouwburg on Saturday 21 September has been cancelled due to too few sign-ups. Still want to learn how to do make-up? Why not learn by doing and join the Panto make-up team? You'll get plenty of support and training, and the chance to contribute to a great show!
