Good Morning Campers!06/07/18
Good Morning Campers! - Written and directed by Mrs Samways. "With the holiday season about to start the camp was appointed a new manager. A mysterious Major Fortescue. As the holiday makers started their fun packed week of bingo, quizzes and glamorous grandmother competitions priceless valuables started to go missing.”
On the evening of Friday 29th June, StarBurst Drama club performed their production to an audience of 80. This musical production was set in the StarBurst holiday camp with its wannabe-chalet maid Victoria and its Red Hatter staff. Its time travelling families - the Presley’s, the Beatles, the Jacksons, Raya Skywalker and her dog Duke. Not forgetting the mysterious Major Thomas Fortescue, proved to be a great success!
The audience were all included in this production and participated in a dance, quiz and the glamorous grandmother/grandfather competition. They were also treated to an illusion involving a box of cereal. There was also a short film of a chase scene involving some of the cast, all thanks to Cheeky George Productions who run the Filmmakers club.
One parent said, “I really enjoyed this evening. The play was so funny. This has to be Drama Club’s best production.”
Another parent said, “My friend’s son watched the production in the week. He talked about it non-stop all the way home and was still talking about it the next day on his way back to school. I couldn’t wait to see it!”
At the end of the production Mrs Oakley thanked everyone involved including: Mrs Samways who runs Drama club, Mrs Floyd who supports the club, Mrs Hunt who did the casts makeup and Deanna Samways who was the technical director for the evening.
Mrs Oakley also drew the winning production ticket entitling a family a fun pony ride for four - donated by Team Tutsham charitable Trust. Well done to Abby in Year 1 Green and her family who were the lucky winners!
StarBurst would also like to thank other South Borough Primary School staff who volunteered to help that evening - Mrs Nevis, Mrs Rotter and Mr Perring. We would also like to thank the Aftercare club who set up the tables and to parents/carers who helped with refreshments.
