The show is really taking shape now - and the children are increasingly fabulous, impressing us with their understanding of the text and interpretations. Here is Bottom arriving back after his dream and greeting his jubilant fellow workers.
All the costume bases have now arrived and Miss Patten has bought the embellishments, so we had fun doing some fittings thanks to Miss Firminger who kindly gave up her time again to work on costumes with the production team. So we were partly in costume this week - and not only ghoulish Halloween ones. Here are the fairies disguising themselves as trees in the forest as Lysander and Demetrius wake up...
The fairies were so good at disguise, we found two fairies not on stage hiding in the cloakroom!
Please be prepared - it is going to be an intensive first week back. We have an extra rehearsal for selected children on Wednesday and then an all day rehearsal on Friday 8th - our last before the dress rehearsal at the theatre!
Have a lovely relaxing half term everyone - and please use it to learn those lines!
