CHADSWORTH IS 50 YEARS OLD IN 2019

To celebrate our 50th birthday we will be organising an anniversary show at the Hampton Hill Theatre in Hampton next July. The 50th birthday show will also mark my personal retirement from Chadsworth although we will be planning to ensure the school continues to run very much on present lines. More information to follow.

 

THE FRIDAY PROJECT

Following last term’s successful production of Disney’s ALADDIN at the Village Hall, this term’s project will be to put on our own cabaret style tribute to Hollywood Musicals and Broadway Shows at the end of term. Thereafter we will be working on our 50th birthday show.

 

EMBER BIG BAND SHOW

Chadsworth will be providing a number of dance routines to accompany The Ember Big Band at a concert in aid of Shooting Star Chase on 29 September at the Hammond Theatre,  Hampton School, Hanworth Road. Hampton. There will be a dress rehearsal at 7.30 on 17 September at Cobham United Reformed church hall, Fairmile, plus earlier rehearsals at the Claygate village hall.

 

BRITISH ARTS AWARDS

Following our success at this year’s finals of the British Arts Awards we will be entering this nation-wide competition again this year. The planned date for the first round of this competition is Saturday 1 December at the village hall.

 

 EXAMINATIONS

The next session of the LAMDA drama exams will take place at the village hall on Sunday 2 December. We also aim to hold the ISTD exams toward the end of term.

 

LOOKING BACK TO LAST TERM

EXAMINATIONS

Congratulations to all the students who took their ballet examinations last term at the RAD headquarters in Battersea.  We were delighted to receive good marks all round and our congratulations to all who entered. Congratulations also to those who entered the LAMDA drama exams where we obtained some truly outstanding results. Again, well done to everyone concerned.

 

OUTSIDE PERFORMANCE WORK

The KAOS dance classes – our street dancing troupe – performed with great success at London’s O2 Arena on Sunday 10 June and a big thank you to all those involved.

 

We also performed in our regular June slot at Garrick’s Temple to Shakespeare on the banks of the  Thames in Hampton. We performed a shortened adaptation of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe which  involved our drama, performance and musical theatre groups.

 

Well done also to all our dancers and performers who turned out to put on a show at the Long Ditton Village Fair and at the Claygate Flower Show.

 

I hope you all have an enjoyable term with us and please feel free to contact the school office if you have any questions or queries.
