School Productions/Drama

At the centre of all Drama is communication and confidence. Like all the arts, drama allows children to communicate with and understand others in new ways. It also builds upon the children’s confidence and resilience and gives them a sense of pride. Drama allows all children to shine. At Hutton Rudby Primary, we greatly value the importance of drama, and the impact that it can have on all our pupils.

Drama and music form the basis of our Harvest festival celebration and Christmas Carol service held at our local community church, All Saints.

Our Christmas and Summer productions are truly something to behold. In Upper Key Stage 2, Mr Johnson, our director extraordinaire,  has raised the bar year on year. Ably assisted by a host of talented assistant and musical directors such as Miss Atkinson, Mrs Stonehouse and Mrs Banks, our school productions are truly memorable. Recently, our Year 5 and 6 Christmas productions of Mulan and Mary Poppins allowed the children to not only perform on stage in front of three packed out audiences, but also allowed the children to develop their ability to read and write music themselves. ( Watch the performance of Mulan below). Our Year 6, ‘Travelling with Poppins’ unit focussed upon Britain at the start of the 20th century particularly the suffragette movement and linked perfectly with the play.

In addition to our Year 5 and 6 musical Christmas productions, our Year 1 and 2 children have undertaken their own Christmas performances also. Of course Christmas plays would not be complete without our Reception children’s wonderful nativity, where there isn’t a dry eye in the audience.

In the Summer term, Year 3 and 4 take on the baton with their own school production. The confidence the Year 3 and 4 children gain from being involved in a whole school production performing on stage is invaluable to their emotional and social development. Mrs Ruddy has helped the children perform some memorable performances such as Treasure Island, a 1920’s themed murder mystery and Alice in Wonderland.

This year, things will be a little different. Key Stage 1 will be joining forces with Reception for a cuteness overload as they bring you a Christmas production for the ages. Taking the place of Upper Key Stage 2, Years 3 & 4 will be performing Peter Pan, led by Mr. Beckwith, Mrs Trevis and Mrs Ruddy. This show will see the debut of musical director Mr. Gilson (fresh from performing at the London 2012 Opening Ceremony) who will be overseeing all things harmonious. Years 5 & 6 will be returning to the stage towards the end of the year with the summer blockbuster, Matilda The Musical.
