Congratulations and well done to everyone involved in OLIVER! THE MUSICAL

CYGNETS is delighted to report another very successful musical theatre course following on from Matilda, run over four days during the February 2016 half term.  This time it was a specially abridged version of the popular musical OLIVER! – with music and lyrics by Lionel Bart. 

All taking part experienced an exciting singing, dancing and acting course, learning many new skills as they learned the songs, created exciting dance routines and explored the characters and dialogue.  The week culminated in a show on the final evening which showcased the talents of all participants, and a hallmark of all CYGNETS shows was that we made sure that everyone taking part was equally involved by rotating the main parts. 

As before, the course was run by the skilled and experienced production team of Director Kalini Kent, Musical Director Ben Beer and Choreographer Hannah Davies – all with many years’ experience in their fields; and they were ably assisted by Kieran Odedra, Charlotte English and Sam Pearson.

A  fabulous time was had by all, with everyone having alot of fun, making new friends and pulling together as a team.  The production team are really proud of all the 36 children who took part and it was lovely to see the everyone enjoying themselves, especially at the final performance, and to witness the proud and happy smiling faces of parents, family and friends.

Feedback has been very favourable from both the audience and those taking part and here are a few:

“Once again Kalini Kent you pulled it off with 36 youngsters many of whom hadn’t met each other before but the friendships made were there for all to see. Thank You to you and your helpers.”
