The 12 Days of Christmas

On Thursday 14 December 2017, Millbrook Academy students are performing The 12 Days of Christmas. This is a showcase from across the performing arts that I am sure will get you into the Christmas mood.

There will be food, drink and gifts available from the stall holders we have arranged for the evening. It really would be good to see as many parents and carers of you as possible as well as those from the local community.

Tickets will be available shortly from Millbrook Academy.

 

Performing Arts Students Entertain at Celebration Tea Party

 

On Monday 5 June, we were invited to take part in a celebration tea party to mark the end of a fantastic project run by The Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham called What's Your Story. This was an inter-generational arts project involving care homes across the county, arts practitioners and children from local schools. The project was funded by Wentworth Court, Cheltenham's first dementia only nursing home as well as charitable trusts. 

At the party, we joined pupils from St. John's Primary in Cheltenham, who entertained with a short play whilst we sang at the beginning and end of the party, entertaining with songs from recent academy productions of West Side Story and Guys and Dolls as well as forthcoming Key Stage 3 show Bugsy Malone. 

Local professional vocal group Songbirds also sang some old favourites and everyone was treated to some of the wonderful poems created by residents at Deanwood Lodge care home in Maisemore. Millbrook students also found themselves dancing with Everyman practitioner Liz, and shared sandwiches, cakes and stories with the residents of the five care homes involved in the project.

It really was a lovely event, and we are very proud of the 22 students who took part.

National Youth Theatre Sucess for Year 9 Student


Luca Gilbert Cresswell in Year 9 has been accepted into the National Youth Theatre. 

This is a really fantastic achievement - tens of thousands apply each year and they accept fewer than 500. Luca went to London to audition a few weeks ago, and heard this weekend that he'd been successful. 

NYT has been going for 60 years, and famous names like Dame Helen Mirren, Daniel Craig, Catherine Tate, Matt Lucas and Matt Smith were all members when they were younger. 

NYT accepts applications from young performers aged 14-25, but it is very rare that someone as young as Luca is accepted. We're really very proud of him.

Well done Luca!
