The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe, February 2020 – Testimonial
Suki Thank you all for putting on such a fantastic show. You gave your time, energy, patience, support, creativity and hearts to this project. And you gave Sara the chance to shine. I can never thank you enough for that. After the show Sara was bubbling over… I think she’s caught the theatre bug big time… there’s nothing like it!
Everyone was fantastic… the actors, the dancers, the choreography and direction, the set, lighting and props (mostly… !). I loved the Beavers and their adorable, comic banter, Mr was sweet and timid, little Lucy was brave, Edmund was suitably snivelly, Susan was the voice of reason and Peter was there to lead them all to victory. And no one forgot their lines! Aslan was awesome, the baby ballerinas were delightful, the point girls were graceful (all the dances were beautifully staged and choreographed)…

En-Pointe Girls in coming ‘Wind in the WIllows’ show
These beautiful girls have been dancing since they were 3-5 years old. It has taken many years of their hard work and the teachers’ dedication, but they are now beautifully ‘en pointe’ which they will demonstrate during our production of ‘Wind in the Willows’.
