For this term TVYT jumped into the world of musical theatre, we whipped out our jazz hands, put on our dazzling smiles and got stuck in. We got to see familiar faces try their hands at singing, acting and dancing all at the same time. We laughed a lot and by the end of each session we were, without exception, exhausted (yes Helen, that maybe because of your marathon of choreography).
TVYT@SJMS used Blood Brothers as their starting point. With the songs Kid's Game and Sunday Afternoon they explored the themes of real life games and their consequences.
TVYT@Tuesdays looked at the theme of otherness by looking at Hairspray. Setting their piece in an audition scenario they looked at rejection with I Know Where I've Been and also the celebration of individuality with You Can't Stop The Beat.
Even Kiz and Elishia couldn't resist getting dressed up and joined in with a 10 minute medley from Wicked. The medley included: Loathing; Popular; Defying Gravity and For Good.
