Y6 Panto - Happily Never After

On the Thursday the 13th July Year 6 performed their spectacular pantomime o parents and siblings. The show was about a town called 'Panto Land' that was inhabited by characters of popular fairy tales such as Cinderella and Peter Pan. However, there was a slight twist to it; in the beginning the villains of the story created a curse to make the hero's happy endings not-so-happy. But in the end, like most fairy tales, the villains curse fails and the heros are victorious.

There were many fabulous costumes in the play, by far some of the greatest were the ones in the Beauty and the Beast scene. Cogsworth's costume was made out of cardboard, felt and was wearing quite a fashionable powdered wig, it was very easy to tell his character and that he was a grandfather clock. Lumiere the candle stick's costume was a bright golden pantsuit with matching socks, shoes and and a skirt, they  had also made giant candles to use as their hands and even as their helmet. And of course, Belle was wearing a lovely pink dress and the Beast was wearing an old-fashioned jacket, a buttoned-up white shirt, black trousers and had face paint to symbolise having a face of a beast. Other wonderful costumes were the ugly stepsisters and the evil queen with their astounding hair and makeup that were done by the wonderful mathematician/ stylist, Mrs Savage.

 

Everyone worked extremely hard on the play and acting. Their hard work paid off when they performed in front of family and friends. The play left the audience amazed and even some tears in people's eyes. But of course, all of the lighting, music, makeup and face paint, background and costumes were not by magic but were in fact done by the extremely amazing and hardworking Year 6 team and other staff members around the school. They helped the actors with their performance and stage presence and prompted the actors when they struggled to remember their lines.
