WOW! What a week it has been, it really is hard to put into words how I am feeling right now but I will do my best below to sum it all up…
5 weeks worth of preparation, 100’s of hours of practice, 14 songs, 3 magical performances, 322 amazed audience members, 18 workhouse children who opened the show superbly, 9 marvellous pickpockets, 1 hilarious duo from Mr Bumble and Mrs Corney, 1 fantastic Fagin, 2 superb children on the lighting, 1 excellent girl on the sound, 3 emotional renditions of ‘As long as he need me’, 1 mesmerising Artful Dodger, 3 ‘Please Sir’s can I have some more’, 4 gun shots, 1 brilliant Bill Sykes, 3 times Mr Brownlow was reunited with Oliver, numerous Oom Pah Pah’s, 0 hats eaten, 5 incredibly hard working TA’s, 1 incredibly proud teacher and 35 talented and sensational children.
To all the staff – Thank you for all your hard work and effort to make it the amazing show that it was, it really was a team effort.
To all the children – You should all be so so proud of yourself and your achievements this week, I hope that the memories from this week will last a life time.
