This week rehearsals start in earnest for the Prep Department’s summer production – The Keymaster by Nick Perrin. The drama focuses on four children who are expecting a very boring history lesson…but instead find themselves transported back in time on a magical journey to learn about the events of 1066, Tudor times, 18th century smugglers, the Industrial Revolution, the Suffragettes and World War 2. Then the children visit the future….
There is plenty of hard work as well as fun in store in the weeks ahead as pupils learn lines and songs and work together in dance to bring the story to life.
The photo below shows Year 5 and 6 pupils but all the children have at least one part to play. There will be two performances, on Tuesday 27th and Thursday 29th June at 7.00pm in The Barn so, parents, make a note in your diaries!
