Term 4 is upon us! Time to take a look back at the end of term 3, and the October School Holidays with PLAY in 3 Days and PLAY in 4 Days!

On September 24t, 54 students and parents came to the matinee of Matilda the Musical to support the creator of PLAY, Nickie, as her dream role of Miss Honey! Afterwards we got lots of photos and even met Mrs Phelps and the Escapologist too! It was a fantastic event and it’s safe to say the children were all star struck seeing their drama teacher on stage at the ITR! Thank you to all who came 🍯💜

In the first week of the October school holidays, our tutor Beth worked with four little PLAYers who performed their original show ‘Come Alive!’ ⭐️

Elliot wakes up to find his puppets and favourite characters have come to life. It’s all fun and games at first until someone puts their foot down! This show was inspired by the children’s love for PLAY’s puppet theatre, enjoy!

Next up was our largest workshop this holidays in Week 2: Our SHOW! in 3 Days! Our typical workshop has lasted 4 days before, but we thought we’d mix up this school holiday programme and pre-cast our awesome drama students in some fantastic roles in our Halloween Special!

Our show was called ‘Don’t be Ridiculous’ and focused on a usual family moving next door to a very unusual house!

Finally, a HUGE well done to those who were involved in CentreStage Rolleston’s production of High School Musical Junior! It was awesome seeing our older students shine on the stage at Rolleston College… Go Wildcats!
