Firstly a warm welcome to our newcomers, who have joined us at Stagecoach for this Autumn term. I hope you are settling in, and above all, that you are enjoying your time with us.
Early Stages 4-6 years
In Early Stages this term we will be working towards our Christmas presentation:'The Drive In'. Which is a presentation based around popular movies such as - Mary Poppins, Jungle Book, Peter Pan, Frozen and many more. We will be using all 3 elements of Musical theatre Drama, Singing and Dancing. Our keyword this term is 'Projection', where we will be learning to project our voices so that our audience can hear us, without the need to shout.
This performance will be on the 26th November. TTBC
Main Schools 6-15 years
This term Saskia, Lucy and Jamie will be keeping main schools on their toes. We were very lucky at the beginning of term to have Kane Parry join the team to deliver a West end workshop. The children had a super time, with Kane teaching a routine from the musical Wicked.
Pupils will be working on ‘Horrible History’ scripts with Saskia and Vicki in Drama. Lucy will be doing songs alongside this as well. Jamie is teaching pupils the Disney parade routine. Plus getting a spooky routine worked out for Dress up for Halloween on the 29th October.
Further Stages 15-18 years
Our 15+ mature student class has been such a success in the last 2 years. Vicki has some great ideas in store this term. We welcome more recruits to learn to do more in-depth work. Vicki is preparing pupils with 2 contrasting monologues to learn for auditions or to add to their portfolios. She will be using scripts from Shakespeare’s ‘The Dream’ finding new ways to bring the funny ‘mechanicals’ to life. We want to help older pupils be more prepared for presentations,public speaking and auditions. These are key skills in life.
11 of our budding 10 year olds will be appearing in 'Carmen' this Sunday 2nd October! The children have all been very busy learning the famous ‘Toreador Song’, which is among the best known of all operatic arias. They will be singing in French, which has been challenging, but was also very rewarding for our students. We are very lucky to be have been asked for the 3rd year, to perform with the Russian State Opera, We hope you will all enjoy performing on Sunday. Break a leg!
