On the 14th of November our wonderful stage went up! It was used for ‘WHAT THE DICKENS!’ performed by Year 5 and 6, directed by Mrs Underwood, lighting by Miss Fielding and sound by Mr Podbury. Mr Smith wrote the excellent songs that we sung. There were 179 children on stage.
Some year 3 and 4 children said:
“WHAT THE DICKENS!” is set in Victorian London and tells the story of a family of children who, on their journey to London to meet their aunt and uncle, unfortunately get lost and end up having an adventure which takes them to the workhouse, farm, chimneys and the court house!
The children performed brilliantly over eight shows and thrilled their packed audiences.
Mrs Underwood said, ”The children of Chalfont St Peter CE Academy always rise to the challenge! To think they have achieved such quality in the space of three weeks is amazing! Well done to all of the children and a huge thank you to our fantastic staff who have helped, encouraged and supported the children during these busy weeks.”
