Performance Times & Places

Every July All Our Students Enjoy The Experience of Performing in Costume on Stage

July 2017 Production

Our Lower Primary and younger Composite classes performed the well-known tale of The Sword in the Stone. In a time of Knights in shining armour just how did Arthur become King? A very dramatic tale with lots of opportunity for super expression.
Children acting King Arthur
Our Upper Primary classes tackled The Cleanest Town in Texas. Abilene is the most boring town in the whole world. But when diva Lulubelle rocks up in town, she makes devious plans that sets the cat among the pigeons! Fun experimenting with Texan accents and fantastic opportunities for creativity.
Children Acting
Our Youth Theatre students took part in Dress Rehearsal Disaster. Poor Miss Fletcher is putting on her first end of year show – a Greek Tragedy – with a class who would rather be doing anything else! Will it be alright on the night? Or a Dress Rehearsal Disaster? Only one way to find out… Youth Theatre students are given plenty of opportunity to develop their own characters and ad lib sections.
After the performances we had our usual Presentation of Medals, Certificates and Achievement Awards which celebrate the effort and all round brilliance of all our students whether they have been with us years, or recently joined the Academy. Everyone receives recognition. One student celebrated his 12th year with the Academy. What a great achievement!

Rushed off my feet today so dashing this off in 2 seconds before setting off to teach my fabulous Driffield classes. Been speaking to and emailing so many lovely students' and potential students' parents today - makes my day special communicating with people.

Let me share with you the funny thing which happened yesterday. I arrived to teach my Heslington class to discover the floor covered (and I mean covered - you could barely see it) with flat pack kitchen cabinets in various states of assembly - and 2 workmen, music blaring out, putting them together. Dramatically (how else?) I gasped... but I have a class in here in 15 minutes! The lovely men, who had no idea I was due, quickly moved the lot! I didn't believe it could be done, but by the time my students started arriving the room was almost clear and we sat up the far end to do the register whilst the rest was cleared. Makes a good story and shows that even after 10 years in the job there are still some things which can take me by surprise!
