Which Night Will My Child Play Their Part!


This year we hope to bring you 'Aladdin'. Due to COVID-19 this show has been delayed significantly, however, the show must go on and we aim to perform the show in summer 2022.


Due to recent restrictions we are slightly altering drama club this year, please see the notes below:


1) All existing drama members can keep their part if they so wish and attend when drama restarts on Thursday 30th September 2021 (3.30pm to 4.30pm). If your child no longer wants to participate please let us know, we will understand. If your child does not want their part please can you return their script.


2) In a bid to recruit new members we will be holding auditions during lunchtimes on Tuesday 28th September 2021 and Wednesday 29th September 2021. Those auditioning will have the choice of singing 'Friend Like Me' or 'A Whole New World'. They will also be asked to act the part of the Genie from page 40 of the script (a copy is attached below). Auditions are open to all children in Year 3 to Year 6.


3) By clicking on the following link: you can access song words and music to help rehearse. The music works best if you create a playlist. A HUGE thank you to our musical mastermind, Mr. Gibson for putting this together. Needless to say there any many other online sites that show how the songs are performed.


4) Initially, we will start with just the main cast, however, after Christmas, when hopefully more COVID-19 restrictions lift, we will add the full choir. 


5) This year drama will be led by: Mr. Gibson, Mrs. Black, Mrs. Cleveland, Mr. McMorris and Mr. Atkinson. We also have Tia Andrews joining us. Tia is a former lead member of drama group and a former winner of Throston's Got Talent.


6) We will soon have a meeting with all interested children to explain in more detail what is happening this year.
