It is supported through 96 workshops reaching out to 650 people. Community rehearsal begins on the afternoon Sunday Feb 3 and runs for a minimum of 8 weeks. Professional rehearsals will begin in April 2019, running for 4 weeks, with at least one day per week to include rehearsal with the community.
