Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Year 6 took to the stage to perform the much loved musical ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ directed by Head of Drama Ruth Chaplin. During the performance the audience saw Charlie Bucket, Veruca Salt, Violet Beauregarde, Mike Teavee and Augustus Gloop journey into Willy Wonka's factory. We saw the children journey through the chocolate room, inventing room, nut sorting room, fizzy lifting room and TV room. Year 6 showed dedication and commitment throughout the rehearsal process right up until the final curtain. Gabrielle who played Mr Willy Wonka performed to an outstanding standard, using her voice and facial expressions to offer an exceptional all-round hilarious character. Charlie played by Tilly showed a mature level of characterisation highlighting the sensitive, timid yet loving character of Charlie.
Throughout the show the audience witnessed a wide selection of talent from all the pupils involved. Mrs Hastings, Head of Dance choreographed a selection of dances that really brought the ensemble numbers to life, while Dr Tebb’s took to the stage with Gabrielle and Talia from Year 10 to bring the well known classics of the traditional film version to our stage.
