Behind the Scenes at Mary Poppins – Week 1
14 September 2022
Rehearsals got underway this week with a read and sing-through of the show. Everyone has been given their scripts and rehearsal schedules and it was amazing to see so many students take part. I spoke to the cast and backstage team on their thoughts about why they have decided to take part in the production:
Millie B: “I think being in the show will help pursue my dreams when and I am older and teach me new skills.”
Merry L: “This is my second show at Windermere School and I think taking part helps with confidence, especially public speaking.”
Millie WN: “I did the play last year and I decided this year to expand my knowledge and support the production by being part of the backstage team.”
Poppy B: “I want to be part of the production as I didn’t do it last year, but I saw how wonderful it was so I have decided to join and support the show backstage.”
As you can see the cast are excited and raring to go.
We can’t wait for you to see our show!
