BOOM! 2019 was a circus extravaganza!
This year’s BOOM! students had a fabulous week of circus fun!
With a script adapted from the hit musical The Greatest Showman by Phoenix’s Creative Director, Phil Dale, and choreographed by KBD Dance’s principal Katie Barker-Dale, our students acted, danced and sang their way towards their final production of “The Greatest Show! on Friday 23rd August. They also appeared in a short film where they told us all what their one wish would be, which was funny, endearing and occasionally very surprising!
With a colourful projected backdrop and spectacular costumes, our audience was transported to the circus, with trapeze artists, bearded ladies, a ring master and many more colourful characters. A very appreciative audience left the Rhodes with some very happy children.
Well done to all our BOOM! students and big thanks to all those involved, especially our volunteer older students who came along to help for the week, Jude Leng, Abigail Jarvie and Erin Baldry, and KBD assistant tutor Louise Austin.
BOOM! runs for one week in August every year and the dates for next year’s BOOM! will be published soon. Do get in touch if you would like to come along and join us.
