Aladdin - The Lyric Theatre Visit

The second empower day for year 7’s was an absolute cracker with pupils experiencing the delights of The Lyric Theatre showing a fun filled performance of Aladdin, with a real flying carpet.  On arrival to the theatre, the most recent chart toppers were playing and in between the girls’ handfuls of popcorn they put their vocal chords to test and sang along. During the performance the girls were in awe of the fantastic costumes and talent on display and they particularly loved their role to play, responding to the characters, joining in with sing songs and even getting propelled sweets from the stage. The girls thought it could not get any better until Aladdin took to the magic carpet and flew out over the audience, a spectacular scene. This epic performance was all rounded off with snow falling over the audience, and the girls trying to catch as much as they could. Year 7 truly had a fantastic experience. When returning to school they put their creative sides to the test, with 4 different competitions. Each tutor produced a fantastic range of posters, reviews and letters. There was some beautiful work created, even with pop out posters, and glittery letters, pupils should be incredibly proud of their afternoon’s efforts.
