Swish swash: the noise of the angry river. Clip clop: the animals who were fleeing. Drip drop: the noise of the river’s last drops.

When rehearsals started on the first day of the school year for the age-old tale of Peter Pan, our cast felt a sense of magic in the air. After only seven short weeks of rehearsals we had to make the unfortunate decision to cancel the scheduled performances of the Junior School Musical.
After all the hard work and effort that the cast and crew had contributed we didn’t want to see it all go to waste. With a time frame of five days we decided “the show must go on” in a sense. With the full support of staff, students and parents we were able to pull some magic strings and run a full day rehearsal/ performance with amazing costumes and mountains of energy.
The cast was so excited to have the opportunity to perform and were very grateful to our Headmaster Mr Craig Bassingthwaighte and other members of staff who spared their time throughout the day to provide a small audience for the students.
A huge thank you must go to Head of the Junior School, Rebecca Collie who without her support, this amazing opportunity would not be possible. She has helped to make our dreams come true, when we wished hard enough.
Thank you to the cast, crew, production team, backstage and entire company for your hard work putting this show together. It has been a joy to watch the students develop their skills and a lot of fun! Their enthusiasm and energy is our inspiration.« Back to IndexNext article in this edition »
