Congratulations and thank-you to all involved with MATILDA THE MUSICAL

During February half-term, CYGNETS ran a three day course of MATILDA THE MUSICAL (IN 20 MINUTES), culminating in a fantastic performance on the final evening.

This was a specially abridged version of the smash-hit West End and Broadway musical written by Dennis Kelly with music and lyrics by Tim Minchin.

During the three days, all taking part got the chance to work with a very skilled and experienced Production Team of Director (Kalini Kent), Musical Directors (Ben Beer) and Choreographer (Hannah Davis), with assistance from Sam Gilliatt.  Many new skills were learned whilst exploring the characters and dialogue, learning the songs, and creating exciting dance routines and movement to all the musical numbers. 

It was an exciting and fun-filled experience for all with a lot to cover in the three days but the performers, aged from 7 to 13 years, rose to the challenge and excelled themselves. All worked really hard and with enthusiasm with the production team learning the songs, dance routines and acting to bring this new musical to life.

The energy on stage was brilliant and it was clear that everyone was really enjoying themselves.  The final performance was amazing, giving everyone on stage the chance to showcase their talents, and it was well deserving of the standing ovation that they received.

All the production team are very proud of every single performer and would like to thank them for their effort, enthusiasm commitment. Thanks also go to everyone who helped out during the three days to make it a success.

Those who missed the chance to attend this course will be pleased to know that CYGNETS will be running the course again during the 2015 summer holiday (date to be confirmed).  More details will follow but if you would like to register your interest for this, please do so by completing our ‘Contact Us’ Form
