Year 6 step back to the 1950s for performance of Guys and Dolls
26 Mar 2015
This week Year 6 are delighting audiences with their performances of the musical Guys and Dolls.
The production is set in 1950s New York, and has been triple cast in order to allow the many acting talents in Year 6 to shine through. The story of the ups and downs of the Guys and Dolls on the streets of New York includes plenty of singing, dancing and some outstanding American accents! All 72 members of Year 6 are involved every night, and have all worked incredibly hard as an ensemble to rehearse their production. As well preforming a dress rehearsal to Pelican pupils, they also performed for Years 4 and 5 on Tuesday morning ahead of their official opening night.
The pupils have put on fantastic shows for their audiences all week, with much brilliant singing and dancing – well done to all of the children who took part.
Guys and Dolls was directed by Julia Morris, who is leaving at the end of this term, after seven years at the Prep. She has directed countless productions including Oliver, Bugsy Malone, Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Beware the Jabberwocky and Guys and Dolls, as well as pantomimes, nativities and Shakespeare plays.
