It's showtime! The P6 show week comes to a climax tomorrow with the performance of the play, School Daze. This morning saw the dress rehearsal take place and if that was anything to go by the parents are in for a real treat tomorrow night.
Great perfomances all round and some rousing songs combined with some hilarious insights into what really happens in school. Well done to all those involved.
To make the morning even more amazing, we welcomed a very special guest to Kellett to witness the dress rehearsal! Mig Ayesa is currently in Hong Kong starring as the lead in the Ben Elton musical "We Will Rock You" and agreed to drop in to watch the show as a result of meeting some of our students after a performance at the Lyric Theatre. Mig has played the part of Galileo in the show across the world, but gained worldwide fame as a result of finishing in the final three of the tv show Rockstar:INXS. He has also recorded with Queen guitarist Brian May and last year released his own CD.
Mig stayed for the whole rehearsal offering words of advice and encouragement to the cast and then congratulated them on their excellent show. He also posed for a number of photos, but the highlight was undoubtedly an impromptu performace of the Queen classic 'We Will Rock You' with the cast providing the backing vocal. An unforgettable experience for all those involved.
Well done to those students who invited Mig and a special thanks to all those involved behind the scenes in helping to ensure his visit was kept as a big surprise for all those present! Lastly, of course, a huge thankyou to Mig for taking time out of his gruelling performance schedule to spend so long with our students and giving so freely of his time.
