Our version of Jack and the Beanstalk keeps getting better and better. I went to a rehearsal last week and parts had been given out and most knew all their words.
The feedback I gave them all was about talking more slowly – a really difficult thing to remember when you are nervous and just want to get to the end of your lines. The different narrators were effective popping in and out of the action but they need to ‘make their presence’ larger to gain the audiences’ attention.
Final rehearsal tomorrow and then the real thing, performing to the other schools at Spalding later this week.
Good Luck to you all!
The latest Comenius Project – funded by the Education and Culture DG Lifelong Learning Programme is based upon Fairy Tales – and as soon as I heard that I knew that the MRC should be involved.
It is a two year project working with some of our students (11-18) from Thomas Deacon Academy and other schools across Europe,- Lincolnshire UK;Germany; and Slovakia.
