Behind The Scenes Dragon Days 2017!
Getting my part
On Tuesday I was very excited because we were auditioning for the Dragon Days School Play! This year I wanted to get a big part (as we are in year 6) because in previous years I didn’t get big parts. We started off auditioning for the narrators which I auditioned for. Next I auditioned for Gawaine (the dragon) and I had to sing a solo!
On Friday (the last day of term) they were going to announce the parts but first Miss Hackett and Miss Morrow did some more auditioning. After Tuesday I really wanted to be the dragon. At the end of the day we finally got to know what our parts were and I was a cheerleader, this definitely wasn’t the part I was hoping for so I wasn’t too happy about it! But Miss Hackett asked if I could make up a dance for the snowflakes in the school play because it was too hard for her to be doing all these different jobs by herself.
As you may know already, I am a cheerleader and a snowflake! I made up a dance for the snowflakes so sometimes in rehearsals I would step out and teach the little kids the dance. I also had to be a cheerleader and had to love Tommy/Jacob (which I did not enjoy very much)! I was a cheerleader with my best friend Annabelle and my other best friend, Izzy, was Girl 1. Being a cheerleader and a snowflake was quite hard because straight after I had said my line as a cheerleader I quickly got ready to be a snowflake for the song ‘Snowfall’ was almost straight after!
