Letter from Mr Arrowsmith 4.12.23
Dear Parents / Carers,
We are very excited to offer your child the opportunity to work with the Coram Shakespeare School’s Foundation – a cultural education charity that works to give young people a wide range of opportunities they might otherwise not have access to.
At the heart of the offer is access to the world’s largest Shakespeare festival, which will culminate for us in a performance on stage at The Lighthouse in Poole, in front of a paying audience, designed to improve the children’s confidence and self-esteem!
This year, our chosen play is ‘Macbeth’, and a group of children from Heatherlands will put on an abridged version, directed by me, (Mr Arrowsmith).
To select the cast for the show, we will be holding auditions when we return to school after the Christmas break, on Friday 5th January. If your child is interested, I will provide them with a short piece to read and try to learn over the Christmas holidays in preparation for an audition.
It is important to stress the commitment that this will entail, so please discuss it carefully with your child; rehearsals will be every Friday after school from 3.20 – 4.20 and they may have to give up some lunchtimes for rehearsals, as well as Golden Time sessions if needed. They also need to be available for the performance date, which is the evening of Tuesday 19th March, 2024.
At this stage, please discuss the opportunity with your children, and I will bring the necessary material around to them before we break for Christmas.
This is an incredible opportunity for the children to act on a professional stage in front of a live audience!
