Year 5 Girls and The Lion King!

It was our great joy to take all the Year 5 Girls to Downe House earlier this week for a wonderful musical theatrical extravaganza!  The girls enjoyed escaping from Cheam and spending time dancing, singing and acting.  

At first glance it seemed as though Downe House had possibly bitten off more than they could chew, with somewhere between 150-200 girls attempting an hour long performance of the Lion King with around 2 hours worth of rehearsal time.  But as the day progressed it showed that this meticulously planned operation was going to work, and what was produced at the end of the day was nothing short of extraordinary and a remarkable effort by all staff and children involved.  Our girls loved singing and dancing the famous numbers on stage and under lights. Everyone was included and involved, which was great to see. The girls were split into groups with other students from different school, which allowed for some good friendship making.

By the end of the day, the girls performed the entire The Lion King to a fortunate group of parents and friends.  Thank you to them and all the Downe House Staff.
