Families and friends were treated to a spectacular evening’s entertainment by our Prep department last night. Singing, acting and dancing their way through Roald Dahl’s Cinderella, the talented cast left the audience delighted!
The Jam Man (Henry) was the perfect husband for sweet, down-trodden Cinders (Anna), conjured for her by a truly sparkly Magic Fairy (Cristina). How did she know that the Elvis-styled Prince (Ashlyn) would turn out to be so nasty? Comic moments were in abundance, not least from Warwick and James’ hilarious interpretations of the Ugly Sisters, the gruesome twosome getting more than their just desserts when the Prince decided to cut off their heads! All the characters – from spinning clock to acrobatic cleaning props and rats, carriage and footmen, townsfolk and a rather elegant band of ballroom guests – gave polished, energetic performances and really looked the part, thanks to the creative costuming skills of our parents. All in all it was a fabulous evening with every child taking part and many also involved in producing the effective panto-style backdrops. The children can be very proud indeed – well done, everyone!
More photos will be posted on the blog soon.
