Y6 shine during musical theatre workshop
In the last full week of the Summer Term, Year Six children participated in ‘Stage Six’, a week-long musical theatre workshop, which is now in its sixth year at Stamford Junior School.
Each class performed one act of a brand new musical, ‘Rock N’ Roller’, written and directed by Old Stamfordian Jonathan Fisher. Rehearsals began on Monday, and the children enthusiastically learnt all the choreography and direction within a remarkably short amount of time.
THE STORY: When young Bobby is given a brand new computer game for his eleventh birthday, he soon finds himself transported back in time to 1962 and rural Lincolnshire.
Before long, Bobby realises the village inhabitants are living under the tyrannical rule of the evil Fleshcreep and his hapless Henchman Harry, and when Fleshcreep announces his wicked plan to rid the village of its beloved livestock, our hero must act fast to save the animals from extinction and to win the heart of the Squire's daughter.
Pupils commented: “It was tremendously fun,” George Howard. “The best week in the whole of my experience at school,” Otis Sainsbury. “It was a hard week of rehearsals, although it all came together and the performances were amazing. We all enjoyed ourselves tremendously!” Lottie Davies. “Stage Six was brilliant! A master piece!” Tom Crick.
