I think I must the proudest Headteacher ever! ‘Young Hercules’, performed by children in Year 4 to Year 6 yesterday afternoon, was an amazing celebration of the year during which we launched our Juilliard Performing Arts programme.
The performance started dramatically, with the cast of approximately 200 children on the stage, singing or accompanying as part of the orchestra. The story soon unfolded as gods and goddesses were seen setting challenges for young Hercules as a penance for his mischievous behaviour. The challenges led Hercules and his friend Ialous to visit strange lands to complete some dangerous, life-threatening tasks for the mean goddess Hera.
The singing, dancing and acting were truly wonderful and the children on the stage looked as if they were having as much fun as the audience. The stage set and costumes made the whole production come alive and the musical accompaniment certainly gave an extra dimension to the show.
Congratulations to Ms. Rea, Mr. Scott and Ms. Huyen from the Performing Arts team! They have worked tirelessly to ensure the children were as well-prepared as possible and gave excellent direction. Thank you too to all the teachers and teaching assistants who ensured technical support, costumes and props were to a high standard. Lastly, to the children – you were absolute stars!
