Timelocked on The Keymaster

Leave a comment

All pupils from Years 3 to 6 delighted two packed audiences in The Barn last week with their informative and sparkling adaption of Nick Perin’s  The Keymaster. As lead character, Emily G (Year 6) made a convincing transformation from boring supply teacher to a whacky time lord to take school children Skyla-Grace (Year 6), Ruby (Year 6), Maxim (Year 5) and Jennie (Year 5) on a magical journey through history.

Along the way pupils and time lord visited the Battle of Hastings, commented on as if it were the 1966 World Cup final in comic fashion by Toby and Alex C (Year 5). They also came across a Tudor doctor played to villainous dramatic effect by Sam (Year 5), and an 18th Century smuggling village full of idiots held together by landlord Eva (Year 5).

There were notable performances by Saffron and Ellie (Year 6) and Maisy (Year 5)  as feisty suffragettes on their march to parliament and Alex S (Year 5) as the police sergeant trying to stop them.

Leoni (Year 6), Amy  (Year 5) and Sophie (Year 5), in their portrayals of boss and workers evoked the feelings of the Industrial Revolution while Emma (Year 5) played a performance of a WW2 evacuee to melt any heart.

The children in Years 3 and 4 also took multiple parts in the drama and contributed enthusiastically to all the singing and dancing around the passage of time.

The show finished to heartfelt applause on both nights and Ms Mobbs would like to congratulate all the cast for their team spirit . I hope that each and every one of them is proud of themselves.
