official congratulations and a few pictures to boot!

Well done to every single person involved in the production, from cast members to crew members. It was absolutely amazing and I can’t wait for December now!




officially less than two weeks left

Please don’t forget that all – ALL – lines need to be perfect by Monday! No exceptions here.

If you have any costume articles at home, bring them in please. Costumed rehearsals will be every day after school and changing needs to be done in less than five minutes.


Consent form

Rehearsal and contact information

Rehearsal schedule

These links enable you to access consent forms and rehearsal schedules online, in the event that you should lose yours.

Again, rehearsals are still at 7:40am! There is no excuse for those who did not attend this morning.

I’m sure you won’t OFFICIALLY forget, but…

Just another reminder that TOMORROW REHEARSALS START AT 7:40. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Also I no longer use the email address I put on here, so if you’ve written to me over the summer I won’t have read it. The email I now use for everything is, and I get these emails on my phone so I will generally read something as soon as you send it, unless I’m in lessons or at work or something. Please no spam! That’s why I stopped using the old email address.

Evidence shizzle: erm erm erm last Tuesday our awesome Team got together to do rehearsal schedules, set designs, etc. That’s evidence enough, surely?

Officially back in business

Right. Hope the summer has been enjoyable so far.

– Lines need to be learnt
– Consent forms need to be brought in
– First rehearsal is the first morning back, 0740 please
– The OBHS group need to have made considerable progress with their soliloquies as there will be intensive coaching (hopefully) next term which will be useless without a decent amount of independent work

That’s it for now.


Alright guys, I leave for Germany on Sunday and will be there for three weeks, and I don’t know how much internet I’ll get while I’m there.

To surmise:

  1. Subscribe. If you know someone hasn’t, make them.
  2. Consent forms first week back, please! If you’ve lost yours, just get your parents to write a quick note saying they agree to the rehearsals and you do too.
  3. LINES. I’m going to kick you out of rehearsals if you don’t know your lines. And that counts as a strike.
  4. Guys doing the Off By Heart (henceforth OBH)- I really want you to put a lot of work into these scripts. There are heaps of resources on the BBC website, and if you don’t know what something means, I suggest you use No Fear Shakespeare on SparkNotes, where it gives you a literal translation of whole plays.
  5. First rehearsal on Tuesday 6th September, 7.40am, New Hall. You’d better let me know NOW if you won’t be there. So far, I’ve heard nothing. Also, just randomly mentioning it to me doesn’t count. You actually need to email me.

Have a good summer!
