After weeks of preparation, the big day finally arrived for the Year 6 end of term play. Our young pupils put in two fantastic performances of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, with an afternoon matinee followed by an evening show. This has been the culmination of many weeks of hard work within Year 6.
Having taken a class vote to decide upon the play, we then set about the task of writing our own script. Auditions then followed with a high standard of acting from both classes. Thankfully the play required many speaking parts, and so we were able to accommodate all of our fine actors.
Year 6 have been rehearsing the play, learning their lines and perfecting the songs over the past few weeks. All of the intense work paid off, with two stunning performances staged on the big day. We were thrilled to see so many family and friends of Michael Faraday coming into our school to help support Year 6. This is truly a significant moment in their school career, and we hope that the pupils will remember the occasion as much as we will!
This production wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication of our esteemed Directors, Leanne and Gabrielle. The amazing scenery and costumes have been made Gill, Bridget and Dilek, working alongside many of the pupils. A final thanks to Louise who has been our brilliant Musical Director of the show.
We are proud to present a selection of videos below from the 2010 Michael Faraday performance of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Enjoy!
