Frequently Asked Questions
Children enjoy watching themselves perform and do not otherwise get the chance to see the entire show. Producing a DVD of the show allows the children's wider family to share in their performance. A DVD of the performance can alleviate parental concerns over limited tickets for school productions. And many parents tell us they enjoy watching the show without having to worry about filming it, as they can just buy the DVD.
