Out of the Mouths of Babes!

Published on: Monday, September 17, 2018

A highlight for me and one of my colleagues last week came as we led our first Performance Club hobby of the year. The club has only attracted girls so far and our first ‘production’ at the end of this half term is going to be a ‘bite size’ version of Cinderella.The unveiling of this information was met with much excitement by the girls as they elaborately retold the many versions of the story they have seen and heard, embellishing their retelling with great detail and panache. A slightly awkward moment occurred when one child suddenly realised someone was going to have to pretend to be a boy, for the part of Prince Charming. Although no-one was initially keen, after chatting to them about how acting means you take on the part of all different sorts of people, one very mature girl happily agreed to take the part. However she also declared (much to the amusement of my colleague and me) that if we didn’t have enough people to fill all of the parts, “the teachers will just have to be the ugly sisters!” Oh how we chuckled!

I think I’m going to enjoy Performance Club!
