This week has seen the completion of the full cast list for Into the Woods. As I’ve mentioned before, this year has seen a huge rise in the standard of the pupils performing at auditions. In some cases we had as many as 15 pupils vying for four roles in the show. This made our job very challenging yet rewarding. Along with the help of our two student assistant directors, we managed to whittle all of the call-back pupils into the finished list you see below. Huge congratulations to them all!!
Rehearsals will start from next week and on Friday, ALL pupils will receive their own personal rehearsal schedule to take home. Please look out for a parent’s WeChat group in the very near future.
Next week, on Thursday and Friday, we will see our first visit of our curriculum specialist, Andrea Lee. Andrea will be demonstrating some new resources on the Juilliard Creative Classroom that we use in our lessons. She will also be popping into a Year 2 lesson and a Year 8 lesson over the two days. On the Thursday evening, at 3.20pm, she will run a master class for every string player in the school (violin, Viola, ‘cello and double bass). This is a fantastic opportunity that shouldn’t be missed by our string players. If you plan on attending, please ensure you have organized your CCA bus in advance.
