Dress Rehearsal

Monday the 4th will be a complete run through of the Christmas performance and Friday the 8th will be a dress rehearsal. It is really important that all Players attend both sessions.

Thank you to everyone that has brought in a costume. If anyone is struggling to complete a costume, then please let us know by this coming Monday.

Costume requirements:

Black T shirt (long sleeved if possible)

Black leggings or trousers

Black socks

Black shoes



The Players had an extra rehearsal session today and it was evident that they have all been working hard to perfect their lines , dances and acting parts  – keep up the great work.

Please remember to bring in your costume, on Monday, in a named carrier bag. We will keep it in school until after the performances, although if your school trousers are going to be part of your costume then there is no need to leave them in school.


Singing in Character

This term, The Players have been demonstrating their singing, acting and dancing skills, so that Mrs Buckby and the drama club team could cast the Christmas performance. We have some strong narrators, beautiful singers and graceful dancers.

Today was our last session of the term and we worked on singing in character to Sparkeljollytwinklejingley.  This song requires lots of facial expression, hand gestures and being rather over the top! Have a look at the photos below.

Everyone has something to learn, during the holidays, and we would like you to start putting together a costume of black leggings/trousers and a black long/short sleeve t shirt. Please don’t bring your costume to school until requested.

Drama Club

Yesterday, The Players drama club had their first session of the school year and after only a few acting and singing activities, Mrs Buckby was really impressed with the talent displayed.

From now until December 11th, we will be working on the Christmas performance – keep checking this blog for snippets of our performance.

A Twisted Tale

We hope you enjoyed The Players and Producers performance of A Twisted Tale. Everyone involved worked extremely hard and we had lots of positive feedback from both parents and staff.  Mrs De Board was especially proud of the shy, quiet class members who performed brilliantly – not so shy anymore!

There are so many benefits from participating in a drama club; here are a few of the skills you can develop: language and communication, cooperation, emotional intelligence and creativity. This term, Mrs Evans and Mrs Chisholm have had the pleasure of witnessing many of The Players build in confidence and emerge as great character actors and actresses.
