Rock Bottom

Drama goes primeval!

The Key Stage 2 students at the British School of Nanjing have this term begun to prepare for this year's musical. This will see many students for the first time taking on leading roles when acting, dancing and singing in the show. This year’s musical is going to be Rock Bottom, a Stone Aged themed production full of excitement! 

Many of our students begin this process cautiously and worry about what will be expected of them. It always pleases me to see however, that this feeling does not last for very long as the starting nerves turn to excitement.  

The older students in Key Stage Two have now finished the audition process and will start the tough task of learning lines. The easiest way for students to do this is by setting themselves achievable working goals, with students setting themselves the target of a learning a given number of lines each day/week. We are wishing all are Year 5 students the best of luck with this task. 

Elsewhere, Year 4 and 3 have begun to learn our opening song in the show. These students are now learning how difficult it can be to act, sing and dance at the same time, and are beginning to understand the stamina needed to perform in a professional show.  

We are looking forward to seeing the finished production on 25th March and look forward to seeing as many guests attending as possible.
