We look forward to welcoming you to Severn Vale School in March for an evening of great music, themed refreshments and audience participation... Severn Vale will Rock You!
Last night saw our first complete read through of the script for We Will Rock You. It was great to hear the whole cast taking turns to read through their lines and beginning to work towards the 'One Vision'. Miss Evans and Mr Khokher now move onto the next stage, working through the script scene-by-scene and song-by-song. While Miss Davies, having made notes regarding costume and scenery requirements, will begin to get creative!
WWRY 1st Read through — Tuesday 14th September – 3.15 in the Drama Studio
The first Read through of the whole script will take place on Tuesday 14th September starting at 3.15 in the Drama Studio. I believe it might take a couple of hours and therefore, please can all cast members make sure that they are able to stay in school until 5.15/5.30 on the 14th (however we may well finish early).
All future rehearsals will be arranged directly between the cast and either Mr Khokher or Miss Evans, and they will shortly be sharing the rehearsal schedule with the cast.
Auditions are over and the production has been cast… there will be no ‘Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon’ for the twenty-four students who have been successful in securing a role in We Will Rock You. Huge congratulations to all and I look forward to hearing Queen songs echoing down our school corridors once rehearsals start in September.
Last night saw the 3rd round of auditions for We Will Rock You taking place in the Drama Studio and from the “Body Language” it looked like it was good fun for all those who took part. Managing to navigate through the last four weeks of Covid-19 disruptions has been a trial for many at Severn Vale School and so it was great to see that our students have maintained their enthusiasm and drive and were able to deliver exceptional performances for this final round of auditions. We now wait to hear who Mr Khokher and Miss Evans are casting in which role ... watch this space.
In true Queen spirt, despite all disruption COVID-19 could throw at us this week the 2nd Round of Auditions took place last night, proving that no matter what The Show Must Go On. Luckily, the weather was conducive to queueing outside allowing students to socially distance while staying in their year group bubbles. If the high standard of the warm-up singing was anything to go by, Mr Khokhar and Miss Evans have difficult decisions to make.
Following the great success of Round One of Auditions for We Will Rock You, it is unfortunate that this week’s Round Two ended up having to be postponed. Mr Johnson's message to all the students invited to take part in Round Two is ‘Hang on In There” as Mr Khokher and Miss Evans are really looking forward auditioning you on Thursday 8th July instead.
Auditions have started in earnest and last night saw over 30 students from Year 7 to Year 10 taking part in Round One. Students were asked to perform a song from Queen and to read a section of script. It is testament to how talented our students are that such a wide selection of Queen’s back catalogue was covered. It was a pleasure to walk across the courtyard and hear joyful singing and I could not be prouder of those few students who were initially struck with stage nerves before rallying to give strong performances. Our Director Miss Evans and Musical Director Mr Khokher, now face a difficult choice of whom to put through to the next round, as “In Only Severn Days” it will be time for Round Two.
