We are delighted to have had so many pupils at The Weston Road Academy chosen to perform in the Panto, Peter Pan, at the Stafford Gatehouse over the festive period. Huge congratulations to all the pupils involved. The show was a roaring success and enjoyed by many in the community over the last two months.
One of our pupils involved, Isabella Weavell-Ellis in year 7, told us about her experience:
‘I went to my first audition at Stafford Gatehouse and I was so excited. When we got the recalls I thought I didn’t have a chance as all the other children were really good. When I heard I had got in I was really surprised.
We had 2 weeks of rehearsals and it was so much fun meeting all the cast and other children in the show. When it came to the first show I was very nervous but once I had done it all didn’t want it to end!
On the last show, me and my friends were upset that it was over because we had all had an amazing time and didn’t want it to be over.
We had parties with the cast where I managed to get them all to sign my programme.
It was amazing and I had a great time with some great memories."
Kirsten Lee, Marketing Manager at the Stafford Gatehouse said: "We are so proud of the Junior Ensemble team members and the work they did on Peter Pan."
