We Rock On…

School of Rock rehearsals are continuing at a fast pace. The girls have been measured for their new school dresses, we’ve blocked all of Act 1 and are continuing to learn the songs! We have also split the cast into two teams – Team Dewey and Team Mullins – ready for our four performances in December. We are also hoping to perform a short section of the show at the forthcoming Open Evening!

School of Rock rehearsals

We had two ‘School of Rock’ rehearsals in the first week back, with a fantastically enthusiastic cast! It was great fun, on Tuesday, to watch them working in small groups to create their own 5 minutes versions of the musical, which they then performed to each other. On Thursday we paired up the ‘kids’ with their new ‘parents’ and then started blocking the show and sung through the first song together and it is already looking ‘AWESOME’ thanks to the commitment, humour, talent and hard work of the cast. Looking forward to December!!!!
