An incredible 129 of us had a fantastic time at The Elephantom at the NT on 10th January. Next trip (for those who have booked in advance only) is Grandpa's Railway on 8th February at the Unicorn. Hope to see you there!
And more Theatre Club trips coming up....
Letters will go out tomorrow in book bags to the school for our 2 next trips to The Unicorn in London Bridge:
Both on Saturday 29th March
1pm At the End of Everything Else - KS2 - age 8 upwards
When her best friend, a little yellow bird named Tito, goes missing, Icka puts her inventive mind to the test and sets off on a mission over land and sea to save him. But nothing can prepare her for what she finds – a problem that she is unable to fix alone. At the End of Everything Else is performed with puppetry, animation, music, sound and only the collective energy of the team on stage to generate all the power needed for the show. Join the Unicorn for a truly unique performance by Mark Arends, writer/director of award-winning Something Very Far Away, which captivated audiences and received rave reviews across the UK.
3pm The Velveteen Rabbit - KS1 - age 4 upwards
This Easter, join us for a heart-warming story about a very shy toy Rabbit who longs for nothing more than to become real. He spends his days waiting patiently on the nursery floor, watching the Boy play with the other toys and dreaming of being picked up and loved. And then, one day he is rediscovered and all his hopes start to come true...First published in 1922, this classic American tale loses nothing of its power, magic and charm in this contemporary adaptation for the Unicorn stage.
Tickets are £7.50 each. Please look out for these letters and get slips and payments in by the deadline Monday 3rd February! Cheques now to be made payable to Rosendale PTA. Excitingly you should also be able to book tickets for these shows online! Please have a go.
I have two trips that I won't send letters out to the whole school for (as too much admin) so are exclusives!
Thursday March 13th - 6.30pm - Phoenix High School, Shepherd's Bush
Phoenix High School
1/ The new RSC children's production of The Taming of the Shrew - aimed at age 8 plus (Years 5 and 6)
This really is an exclusive as the RSC are not selling tickets to this - they just alerted me that the tour was in London for 2 days only. It is part of their first encounter project - introducing children to Shakespeare so should be really good!
Tickets are just £5 adults and £3 children.
For more information on the show see http://www.rsc.org.uk/
2/ Minotaur at the Polka Theatre on Friday 4th April at 7pm (the last day of term). Legend updated to heroic modern day boy story. Ages 8 plus - children under 7 will not get in as they have quite strict door policy for the main theatre. There is a great writing competition kids can enter too.
This is a saver show - so all tickets are just £9 each (usual price £9-13)
For more information see http://www.polkatheatre.
If you want tickets for either of these shows - I have reserved 30 for each on a first come first served basis - the deadline (bit extended) is Monday 3rd February. Please email me with your interest and leave envelope marked up with F/A LISA STATHAM - and name of the show. Cheques to be made payable to Rosendale PTA. Please include on the envelope:
Name of your children and class
Number of tickets required
Payment - please make cheques payable to Rosendale PTA
