We have 2 more exciting theatre trips to The Unicorn coming up!

Our next trip next term for KS2 is to see The Chair at The Unicorn Theatre in London Bridge on Sunday 22nd March at 2.30pm.

If you’re sure that Ghosts aren’t real, If your Nerves are made of Steel,
If you’re brave and if you dare, Come sit upon the Barber’s Chair.

Welcome to Tiger Bay, the most deadly and dangerous docks on these shores. A place full of strangers with tales of ghosts, of fortunes found and lost, myths, rumours and rum – and what better place to hear these tales than Cardiff’s cheapest barbers. He can give you a shave or just a trim; he could even fix your grin...
With live music, songs and a cut-throat razor, actor Gary Lagden returns to the Unicorn with the team that brought you The Pardoner’s Tale and A Thousand Slimy Things.

The play is aimed at children in Key Stage 2 (recommended ages 7 plus). The ticket price (discounted for schools) is just £7.50 (normal price £10-£16).

Our next trip next term for KS1 is to see The Velveteen Rabbit at The Unicorn Theatre in London Bridge on Sunday 19th April at 3pm. (Please note many of you may have seen this show last year.)

There was once a velveteen rabbit, and in the beginning he was really splendid. He was fat and bunchy, as a rabbit should be; and for at least two hours the Boy loved him. Join us for the return of hit show The Velveteen Rabbit, 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 bold and adventure-filled adaptation for the Unicorn stage.

The play is aimed at children in Key Stage 1 (recommended ages 4 plus). The ticket price (discounted for schools) is just £7.50 (normal price £10-£16). 

The ticket nos are limited and they are available on a first come first served basis. The deadline for all payments is next Friday 16th January.   

Please give cash or cheque with completed slips (on the letters) to the office, making cheques payable to Rosendale PTA. The trips should be on the SIMS Agora system so you can pay online early next week. 

HAPPY 2015!

Happy New Year everyone!

Theatre Club had a brilliant 2014. We took up over 1200 seats at local theatres and last term we had record numbers!

Spring 2014 - 470
Summer 2014 - 200
Winter 2014 - 610

This was largely due to the amazing 346 of us who went to the fantastic panto in Greenwich. Rosendale (and some friends at DVIS) really did take over Greenwich for the night! Thanks everyone for all your support.

Please keep following the blog as we have some fantastic trips coming up in 2015.

And don't forget to buy tickets from the office (just £5 per family) for the panto Cinderella (performed by Rosendale members of staff no less) on Thursday 15th at 6.30. All proceeds to support local disadvantaged families.
