…And Action!



Just recently our class had auditions for our year 6/7  plays (see last year’s here). We are doing a play called Cinders. It is based on Cinderella, with a few extra parts and the storyline is a bit muddled up. We had everyone who wanted a particular part say a few lines from the script and then they would leave the room so everyone else could vote on the best person for the job. Here is a list of the characters and the cast.

Narrators-Millie and Trevy

Cinders-Erin G


Prince Charming-Ryan

Cruel (not ugly!) Stepsisters-Emily and ME!!!


Queen-Erin H

Lord Gripington-Nick

Granny-Charlotte M



Fairy Godmother-Livvy

Queen’s Ladies-In-Waiting-Amelia and Chelsea

Prince’s Bodyguards-Hamish, Jackson and Charlotte T

Mr. Shifter-Wylan

Shifters (non-speaking)-Jasmine, Hannah P, Kellie

Newspaper Sellers-Zoe and Tori

Wishy, Chinese Laundry Girl (non-speaking)-Victoria

Washy, Chinese Laundry Girl (non-speaking)-Sira

Hayley and Hannah F will most likely be Shifters or sign holders (the BOOING and HISSING) but I’m not 100% sure.

The plays will be performed in week 8 of term 2. I will most definitely do a post on it with photos but for now, it is just rehearsals and practices!

And, congrats to everyone who auditioned because everyone was just fantastic and the voting was very hard! But, you know the saying goes “There are no small parts, only small actors” quoted by Stanislavisky, Konstantin.

Plus, I wish everyone a happy Easter holiday! What are you doing these holidays?
