Gloucester Primary make final preparations for their musical Ever thought of putting on a big production at school but never had the courage? At Gloucester Primary in London, it’s the final Christmas performance of a new musical based on ‘Goldilocks’ from Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes. Music co-ordinator Jo Fitzmaurice and other staff are in the final stages of rehearsal and they share with us their experience and knowledge of putting on a show. Drum teacher Prince helps with the choreography. Yr 4 teacher Jane gets to use her musical and dramatic talents and together they work with Jo to get the best performances out of the children during rehearsal. Teaching assistant Sylvie and Resources Manager Linda have fun creating costumes and making sets on a shoestring. And in those tense last minutes just before the final performance, the children talk about how THEY feel about it all.
