I felt so sorry for Mandy yesterday Mandy is the Key Stage 2 co-ordinator and, as such, has been in overall responsibility for the juniors' show, Aladdin. Yesterday afternoon the KS2 staff and parent helpers were walking all of KS2 (wearing their costumes) down to a local secondary for the dress rehearsal because they're using the hall - ours is way too small.
At about midday the heavens opened and it poured and poured - no way would they have been able to walk down in costumes, they would have been ruined. Fortunately, it had all stopped and wad drying up by 1:00 but not before some panic planning had taken place.
I gather that when they got there, the hall was in a fair old shambles and the sound and light hadn't been sorted. What an afternoon!
They gave their first performance last night and I'm going to the second performance tonight. I bet that it has been, and will be, absolutely brilliant! I'm very much looking forward to it.
Three days to go! YAY!!
