Class 4 Autumn Term 1
On Tuesday 18th October Class 4 took part in the Shakespeare Schools Festival at Mansfield Palace Theatre. After many hours of practising lines and rehearsing it was finally time to showcase our performance of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.
The children were all excited to explore the backstage area of the theatre, where we were allocated dressing rooms under the stage to put on our amazing costumes. We had technical and dress rehearsals so that the stage lights and props were all perfect; then waited anxiously for our turn. Many parents, carers, other family members and friends came along to support us.
Although three other schools were taking part, we were the only primary school. When our turn came the children rose to the occasion and gave a faultless performance. The applause was amazing and we were congratulated by SSF staff and all other participating schools for the quality of our performance. The children all enjoyed the experience immensely and wanted to know when we can have another go!
Huge thanks go to Mrs Stockwell and Mrs White for their hard work sorting out costumes and props, and Mrs Morgan for her support learning lines and backstage at the theatre.
Well done Class 4, you made us all incredibly proud!
