12th February 2020 — Year 6 and 7 pupils put on a mesmerising production of the Lion King to a packed out audience of local members of the community.
As part of the voluntary Enrichment Programme on Saturday mornings, thirty pupils from All Hallows with a varied amount of experience came together in September to throw themselves into rehearsals. After months of practising routines, rehearsing lines and learning songs, the ensemble came together this week to perform the infamous Lion King in front of a full audience of parents, staff, pupils, friends and family. The stage really came to life with exquisite masks and spectacular costumes made by a voluntary team of talented parents. The Serengeti and its myriad of wild animals danced across the stage in breathtaking form and brought the audience to tears of laughter and joy with their performances - who needs the West End!
Director Scott Carpenter said "Regardless of their starting point, it has been wonderful to see each and every cast member develop their knowledge of performing in Musical Theatre, hone their stagecraft, appreciate how an individual role contributes to the overall production and acquire an understanding of the rehearsal process required to achieve the final outcome".
