After six months of planning, preparation, line learning, rehearsing, sleepless nights, costume fittings, design meetings, tantrums and tears ‘A Christmas Carol’ is almost ready to be unveiled. With less than a week until the curtain lifts on Tuesday night excitement amongst the cast and production team is starting to build.
If you have already bought your ticket then I hope you’re looking forward to it. If you’ve ordered a ticket and it needs collecting then please bring your money in by Tuesday. If you haven’t bought a ticket yet and you’re thinking of coming along then I have a few left in the Drama Studio or alternatively they can be booked from the Muni Arts Centre direct by calling 01443 485934.
It is hard to praise enough the efforts of all involved in the show but I for one am incredibly proud. The work of my colleagues in the Performing Arts department and the wider school as well as that of our students has been fantastic. Some of the performances are breathtaking and if you’re expecting ‘Peter Pan’ mark 2 then you are in for something of a surprise. The staging follows the austere nature of both the story and the current economic climate by creating Dicken’s world in what I hope is an imaginative and innovative way.
I would really appreciate a final few days of marketing, cajoling and word of mouth from our wonderful school community in order to ensure that this show helps to bring to a close what has been another fantastic year here at Y Pant.
See you at the Muni!
Mr Thomas, Head of Performing Arts
