There was huge excitement in the music and drama departments this week as we started to prepare for the Year 8 musical, Bugsy Malone.  Following last Saturday’s acting audition workshop, which was great fun, and some singing trials in class, Sue Glossop, Finn Harrison and I had the unenviable task of casting the many parts (some children have four different characters to master!)  The children gathered in the Chaplin Theatre on Tuesday for the big announcement and it was wonderful to see how supportive they were of each other and to feel the buzz around school.  I think this is going to be a great project.
