FINAL DETAILS FOR SHAKESPEARE EVENT THURSDAY 15TH OCTOBER
After a lot of hard work put in by the children, we have reached our final performance. The whole cast are very excited at the fact we are playing to a sold out audience and we all thank you for your support. Here are some answers to some least questions you may have and please be aware that the children are performing on Friday to the school (explained at the end!).
What will my child need with me on Thursday?
Your child will come to school as normal on Thursday in School uniform. Please make sure they have with them: theatre blacks (t-shirt, trousers, shoes and socks), school lunch unless you have paid for hot meal (we leave after this!), £5 tea money for our trip to McDonalds (or alternative food if you wish), and an extra snack or drink for the afternoon could also be useful.
What is the timetable for the children on Thursday?
The children will start the day with maths as normal. After break they will come together as a cast for a final rehearsal at school. We then rehearse until lunch at normal time. At 12:30pm a coach will transport us to the Drill Hall for our technical and final dress rehearsal, due to end at around 4:30pm. We will then escort the children in to town for tea before returning for our curtain call at 6pm.
What are the times for the show?
The Shakespeare for Schools performances begin at 7pm. On the night, you will have the chance to see 4 schools perform. Each of the plays is around half an hour with a short interval. Our children will watch two performances, and be on or back stage for the other two. As the event is sold out, they will need to stay with the school chaperones throughout the night. We anticipate the show to end between 9:30 and 10pm. After the curtain call we will register children as they leave to make sure everyone has left safely. Please let us know if you are not coming to see the show and have made alternative arrangements to get your child home from the Drill Hall.
When will the rest of the school get to see their hard work?
There has been a lot of talk around the school about the play and much excitement has been generated. We have managed to fit in a performance to the school on Friday 16th October at 2:30pm. This will mean the play is fresh in their minds and some of the younger siblings in school who were not able to make the evening performance will get to see it the next day. Therefore, could we please ask that children bring in their theatre blacks on Friday as well please (the day following the performance at the Drill Hall).
The world is their oyster! They have all done an incredible job to put on our performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and we couldn’t be more proud. We thank you all for your support throughout the process and hope to see you there on Thursday.
Mr Spowage and Miss Windley
