This week, on Monday and Tuesday, Year 6 performed their fantastic end of school production, for the school and their parents. Over the past couple of weeks, they have been continuously practising their show to make it perfect and have put in the best effort they can to make it “The Greatest Show”!
Inspired by The Greatest Showman film, the Year 6 teachers put together their own original script. They followed the journey of a girl called Sam, who loved the circus, on her way to stardom, although along the way there was a few twists and turns! She had always longed to be a ringmaster and felt that the only place she belonged was the place she loved – the circus! Having to start at the bottom, Sam finds the circus life harder than she expected but got to meet many strange and unique people, to discover her inner self and confidence. The only way to prove herself is to find the missing elephant (Tiny), to show that this is what she has always wanted and that she is the girl for the job. However, when Barnum suddenly falls ill, there is only one more person left for the role of ringmaster, and Sam gets to live her dream, that has been alive inside her for many years!
Well done Year 6 for your fantastic performance this week – Mrs Keighley was in tears at the end of it, AND Mr Patterson said it was the best production he had ever seen!
