From fairytale world, to Queen Elizabeth

For three years at the end of nearly every school half term, Camp Colebrooke has opened its doors to welcome children in for a week of fun filled activities surrounding drama, dance and singing.

Last February Chris and his team managed to put together a two-hour show in under five days to celebrate the great year Camp Colebrooke had previously. This February they set about doing the same thing – with even more acts!

From the world of Fairy-tale to the real life story of Queen Elizabeth II, the pupils have had a tough challenge this time, but outdid themselves in the final performance.

While many of the short sketches including Matilda, Snow White and Beauty and the Beast were put together by Polly Diaz-Thomson, Chris was focusing on his sketch with the older pupils called The Monarchy in which we saw key moments from the early days of the Queen’s reign.

The Queen, played by Rosie Young, had a tough role to play when it came to learning the accent and especially the Queens Walk – nothing went unnoticed said Chris, we planned their outfits, characteristics and general movements down to the last details.

The cast was completed with Romi Page as the Queen Mother, Alyyah Parkin as Princess Margaret, Thomas Newton as Prince Philip and Sapphire Eastaugh as Queen Mary.

Many of the younger ones took to the stage and took on big roles for the first time, Millie Richardson played the young princess Snow White, Elise Leadley took on the role of Matilda and little Ava Gildroy took on the role of the man cub; Mowgli.
