Congratulations and praise to all involved with MATILDA THE MUSICAL 

During the Summer holiday, CYGNETS once again ran a very successful course of MATILDA THE MUSICAL (IN 20 MINUTES), this time for 5 days and 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 five 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 Sam Gilliatt) and Choreographer (Hannah Davis), ably assisted by Kieran Odedra.  

It was an exciting and fun-filled experience for all with a lot to cover in the five 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, and there was a tremendous camaraderie amongst the group as new friendships were formed. 

Many new skills were learned by all whilst exploring the characters and dialogue, learning the songs, and creating exciting dance routines and movement to all the musical numbers.

The final show was tremendous, with all main parts were rotated so that all performers had many opportunities to showcase their talents.  There were energetic performances from all and it was a pleasure to see everyone really enjoying themselves.

 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 to make it a success. 

 Feedback has been tremendous and here are a some of the may comments that have been received:

“I really valued the way the main roles rotated to give everyone significant opportunities.  CYGNETS provided a very professional, well organised and very enjoyable opportunity fo9r out daughter.  We would recommend to anyone!”
