Newsletter week 7

Welcome back to all our members after a well deserved break in what is for all of them a busy time in their school lives. We look forward to fun packed action and a very exciting performance in December!

Save the date for your diaries: Saturday 8th December, 2pm. We are performing on the ground floor of Peter Jones and I can't wait to show off the talent of all our members to the Christmas shoppers!

A lot of line learning is to be done over the next month in preparation for our first ever public performance; the first of many to come! Stage Stompers are sounding very festive with their song and are making excellent progress with their poems. I'm hoping they get a lot of practice in at home and practising their actions which they have chosen to go with their poems! Stage Stompers are becoming very focused performers and have lots of fun along with it.

I was so impressed with the older members who have worked on their lines and characterisation over their break. This week we focused on the lives and conditions of the poor in Victorian London so we could realistically convey this to the audience through imaginative acting and mime. We looked at how to show characters' feelings and emotions in freezing conditions, despite being in a warm room! We also stepped in to the mind and movements of older characters; this provided much fun during rehearsals! When we rehearsed the completed scene with the song which the Platinum Boy's Choir will be singing, it was fantastic to watch. There is a real sense of positive energy and excitement for our performance and this is really encouraging and inspiring. Next week's rehearsal will focus closely on polishing our miming techniques and refining the emotional moments in each scene.

Keep persevering with the lines, it will be a great show!
