Felixstowe’s Deben High School, has been set a challenge to host a musical in front of a public audience, starting from scratch! We have exactly one day before we perform our play about ‘Life in 2050,’
We have been given the task by the ‘Musikscool’ team, and have been given four different areas of the production; Dance, Singing, Drama and Stage Pruduction, in which myself, Ollie Spink and Josh Horton are involved. Stage Productions involves Press Conferences, Photography, Costumes and Props, Lighting, Scenery and our pathway, Social Networking and publications, on sites such as Twitter and Facebook.
The show will be to a real audience of over 100. Every component of it will be built from scratch, from props, scenery, the music, theatre and dance acts. We have only three lessons for each group to have its stuff ready for the show, which is not long at all.
Michael Brown, co-founder of Musikscool, has told us that this is the first time Musikscool has organised a live show involving music, dance and theatre. It is also the first time they have worked with 12 to 13 year olds, so they are learning a lot too.
