Go For Gold
On Tuesday 28th and Thursday 30th June all the boys in Year 2 performed their end of year musical, ‘Go For Gold’, written by Gawen Robinson, adapted for WCPS by Miss Darby. The boys took us on an incredible journey back in time to a period over two and half thousand years ago where we met all the characters responsible for the Olympic Games we have today.
As a school staff we are all so proud of the boys. They have worked so hard to learn their lines and remember their cues. They listened carefully to direction from all the teachers. They quickly learnt all the song lyrics by heart and managed to sing confidently at the same time as handling some complicated choreography! Every boy performed with enthusiasm and brought their character to life on stage. Additionally, the transitions between scenes were seamless and they worked confidently with all the props.
Our audiences seemed to enjoy it too with lots of laughter at the jokes and foot tapping along to the songs. It was fantastic to be able to take advantage of the piano. Thank you to Mr Appleby for his invaluable guidance with the songs and lovely piano playing, which really allowed the boys to perform with confidence, energy and enthusiasm.
We would like to thank all the parents for supporting the boys with learning their words and lyrics at home, providing the amazing costumes that helped the boys act in their roles so fervently, and coming to watch their boys on the days of the performance. Special thanks to all the parents who provided props and came to help with make-up and face painting.
Huge thanks must go to Mrs Collins for her incredible efforts painting the scenery. Thanks must also go to Mrs Steel, Mrs Johnston and Mrs Collins for creating the wonderful props and for adding a touch of ‘Olympic’ magic by decorating the hall so beautifully. Many thanks must go to Mrs Logan and Mrs Crabtree for supporting the boys through their rehearsals and for all their help behind the scenes.
We are certainly very proud of our wonderful little actors and hope that they continue to enjoy performing on stage in the future.
