A Christmassy Twist on Cinderella
This year Upper Junior Girls Christmas performance took on the style of a modern day panto. The play looked at the traditional Cinderella story line and gave it a great twist. Cinderella, Rockerfella (aka Prince Charming), along with a cast of animals, Buttons the servant, and a whole host of supporting actors helped the downtrodden Cinderella gain her ‘happy ever after’; and Fairy Nasty Boots was a true ‘evil character’.
Parents said it was most enjoyable evening and loved seeing the girls enjoy the experience from start to finish.
Mrs Kate Warren, Head of Drama Junior and Senior Girls commented:
“These girls have stepped up incredibly using the skills learnt through LAMDA sessions and ongoing Drama Clubs and showed true commitment to these challenging and rewarding roles, exploring Drama, Dance and Musical Theatre. Breaking down the fourth wall to address the audience is one massive task which these young vibrant actors did so successfully.”
Miss Leanne Barlow, Head of Junior Girls commented:
“Our Upper Junior Christmas production this year was a Panto - Cinderella Rockerfella! Oh yes it was! The girls’ performances were outstanding! From learning their lines to acting, telling jokes, singing and dancing! The performance had more audience participation than ever before and my goodness did we enjoy ourselves. Once again, the girls exuded confidence and showed natural flare for being on the stage. We are definitely ready for Christmas now!”
