Frequently Asked Questions

1.  Q: What is the format of the show?
A:  We will likely have 2 acts, with a 20 minute intermission in between.

2.  Q:  What kind of poles are we using?
A:  X-Pole Stages, both chrome and one brass.  We will have stage poles available for troupe rehearsals closer to the time of the show.  Everyone will get lots of practice on them.

3.  Q: Do performers get to watch the show from the audience?
A:  No, performers will be held backstage doing their hair, make up, warming up, and being present when the stage manager needs you, and being part of our final act.  We might also require performers that have performed to help clean off poles in between acts.. "Pole Kittens" we call them ;)  You will be able to watch the show the day of the full dress rehearsal.  All performers can be in the audience that day!

4.  Q:  Do performers get a free ticket for a guest?
A:  No, a free ticket is not included in the price.  Tickets will be available for purchase via a box office.  $40 for a VIP ticket which includes a special seat close to the stage, and access to our gala reception that we will be holding 1 hour before the show at 6pm.  The reception will be fully catered, non-alcoholic beverages will be provided.  Guests can mingle with performers.  $30 will be the price of our general admission tickets.  All prices are subject to change, we are still working out those details.

5.  Q:  Will performers be able to attend the reception?
A:  Yes, but they will be required to be ready for the start of the show.  We do encourage you to be there to greet your guests if you chose, but be sure to get backstage and get ready for show time!!

6.  Q:  How many spaces are in each troupe?
A:  Each troupe is different, and may be adjusted as needed.  Pole troupes for the most part have 8 spots.  Doubles 10 spots.

7.  Q:  How will I get to see the show?
A:  We are going to have a videographer, and photographer on show night.  Both of these will be available for viewing and for purchase after the show.  Photography during the show is not allowed. 

8.  Q:  I'm going to miss one of the troupe rehearsal dates, is that a problem?
A:  We totally understand that out of 8 weeks you might miss a practice.  That has been built into our plan, and is okay.  However, we strongly encourage you to attend all practices if you can, or notify your troupe leader if you have to miss a session.  For the troupes practicing on weekends, we have Thanksgiving weekend booked off so you do not miss out.

9.  Q:  Do I have to have my picture taken?
A:  Yes.  However if you're not comfortable with it, we can try to work something out.  We will be recording some practice/rehearsal footage for a "behind the scenes" reel that we are going to play at the show after intermission.  This will give the audience a look at how much hard work and practice goes into our troupes.  Just think of Dancing with the Stars, and their footage.  We will be recording the night of, and having pictures taken of the show.

10.  Q:  I don't want to perform, but I want to be a part of this, is there any way I can help?
A:  YES!  We will have lots of volunteer opportunities.  A massive amount of work goes into this kind of event, and we will need as many volunteers as we can take.  Please email us at studiochiclondon@gmail.com and we will add your name to our volunteer list.
