More than 80 pupils from the BCPS Musical Theatre Club were involved in Mary Poppins Jr at the end of last term. The youngsters, from years 4, 5 and 6, performed in two separate casts, Olivia and Rose taking on the role of Mary Poppins. All the children sang songs including Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, Spoonful of Sugar and Step in Time, danced and acted with real enthusiasm and talent and relished the opportunity to perform in front of an audience, on a stage full of chimneys, magical handbags and lots of kites!
The team effort was also evident amongst the staff, Miss Williams, Mr Lees and Mr Cole, and some amazing costumes were generously donated by parents and Fox King Dance Academy.
We were surprised and honoured to have Michael Morpurgo visit to watch one of the performances. He spoke to the cast beforehand and gave an inspiring speech at the end. We think he liked the show!
