Well, it’s the end of August, which marks the end of Summer 2013, and hasn’t it been a busy one!
All of our summer project have now finished and we’re in the process of receiving some excellent feedback.
“Stone Age Rampage” – our Performing Arts Summer School for 7 – 11 year olds, took place during the first week of the summer holidays. The final show on Friday 2nd August was absolutely hilarious. Our cast this year did themselves proud – UG UG UM BONGO BONGO! Which in Stone Age means – well done all, you were ace!
“3, 2, 1 – Game On!” for our 11 – 16 year old cast took place the following Friday, and we’ve had reports that it was our best summer school show yet. With a fantastic montage of vintage video games to open the show, the audience had a laugh a minute with this corker of a performance, written and directed by Sami Cornick and Philip Hyde.
During all the madness of our summer projects, we also held four weeks of Transitions programs for students taking the big move from year 6 into year 7. Kingsbury School, The Berries Children’s Centre and Lyndon School all had a fabulous week with a range of our arts workers, including dance, visual arts, film and camera work, singing, music and drama. A huge thank you to everyone involved, and all the young people we’ve worked with over this summer.
So September is upon us, and we’re making a few changing here at Round Midnight. So keep in touch, and keep reading!
