Friday 24th March

Well done to everyone for their Easter egg competition entries. There were so many wonderful designs and creations. We were all really impressed with the thought and imagination behind the pieces. Thank you to Mrs Bell and Mrs Downes for coming in to judge the competition – if they could have give everyone a prize, they would have.

Well done to Jasmine, Henry, Nancy, Jonah, Max, Alice, Arthur and Florence for their winning entries.

We hope that you all have a lovely and safe weekend.

School of Rock Opportunity

Shrewsbury Musical Theatre Company are very excited to be producing the Shropshire Premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s smash hit musical School of Rock and are now registering interest for child lead and ensemble roles in the show.

We are particularly interested in hearing from kids age 9-14 who can act, sing, dance, and for certain lead roles, also play musical instruments.

Performances are 15 – 18 Nov 2023 at Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury.  With rehearsals taking place generally on Mondays/Wednesdays and some Sundays.

With a fabulous production team already in place – this promises to be an opportunity not to be missed!
