Special photo shoot for Madagascar Jr the musical

Our wonderful leads in the cast of our Junior School musical production, Madagascar Jr were able to see some of their hard work come to life during the photoshoot held in our WCC hall.

These 28 students attended rehearsals every Wednesday afternoon after school as well as every Monday and Friday lunchtime for most of the year, while we were able to be at school. More than 50+ hours of rehearsals including singing, choreography, blocking, memorising and delivering their lines, vocal solos and group performances ready to present at the end of July. However, Covid stopped all plans so the next best thing was our photoshoot.

The children were dressed in their fabulous costumes made by our amazing Costume team consisting of up of 15 talented Calrossy parents. These costumes helped to bring to life the story of the ‘Zoosters’; Marty (Henry Turner), Alex (Oliver Scott), Gloria (Mali Blinman), Melman (Charlotte Thornton) and all their friends who they met along the way from Central Park Zoo to Madagascar!

The students were the most hard working, enthusiastic, talented group who deserved to have their moment in the spotlight and this photoshoot gave them a small glimpse of the stage. We are very sad they were unable to present it this year live and in full.  For more photos, please check out our mega photo gallery on The HUB.

Thank you also to Mrs Davies, Mr Hardes, Mrs Godden, Mr Wett, Mrs Annis-Brown and Mrs Holmes who all assisted.
