As I’m sure you are aware, Year 3 and 4 having been working their socks off preparing and rehearsing for their Easter production for the last 5 weeks. Today was their first official dress rehearsal in front of their first audience and Miss Needham and I (plus everyone else!) were just blown away by how well they did.
The 3 key points that we practised the most were:
- Projecting our voices so that even people at the back of the hall can hear us.
- Using the stage to our advantage and standing in the correct places.
- Facing the audience even though we might be having a conversation with someone else across the stage.
Every single person remembered all of these points and went above and beyond by adding actions and expression into their voices. The audience loved it, especially the songs.
A huge thank you to all the help with costumes and props – we couldn’t have done this without everyones help!
We look forward to our next two performances… let’s break a leg!
