Safeguarding at the theatre


Parents drop off and collection at the theatre. 

At the theatre one adult per child will receive a wristband to give access to walk your child to their designated dressing room to sign them in, get them changed if needed and also for collection. Please remember to sign them out.  Please also take your child to the toilet before this. 




Parent Helpers

Each class needs a minimum of 2 helpers to stay backstage for rehearsals, and each show. DBS is required. If you don't have a DBS we can help you get one - email us for assistance. 

All chaperones will be issued lanyards to identify them easily

and please make sure your child knows who is helping their class. 

All staff will be wearing DCA uniform including Junior coaches when not in costume. 


Dressing room

Your child will be allocated a dressing room for their

time at the theatre.

This will be confirmed soon.

Your dressing room will be where you sign in your child with their costumes and collected also after the shows from the same locations you drop them off at. 

During rehearsals in the morning children may be backstage with staff and in the theatre for reference . 

More questions please email us we are happy to help.
