Casting Announced for Summer Production

On Wednesday 1st March, the Bluecoat Hall transformed into a nonsensical world of theatre as auditions for the Drama Club and Year 6 summer play took place. Having received a script excerpt and poem in advance, drama hopefuls warmed up their voices and took to the stage; dreams of their ideal role within reach!

Director/Producer Mrs Furseman, Miss Marsh and Mr Bond, led the audition process and were impressed by the effort that the children put in. Auditionees were Image result for alice in wonderlandrandomly placed into small groups and were given two minutes to collaborate to decide who performed which part – the Duchess, Mouse, Owl, Mock Turtle, Dodo and Alice. They were also asked to recite from memory ‘How Doth the Little Crocodile’ poem. The clues are there…have you guessed what the production is?

The production is, of course, ‘Alice the Musical’, based upon Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’. Congratulations to everyone who auditioned; the standards were really high. All of year six will have a part to play as well as the year five members of the Drama Club. A performance such as this is built on the whole ensemble and this promises to be a truly spectacular production. It was not an easy task to allocate the main roles but the final line up has been revealed!
