Drama Department Visit to see Disney's 'Aladdin'
On Thursday 23rd March, 24 The Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School Year 8 students journeyed to London to see Disney's 'Aladdin' at the Prince Edward Theatre. The production was an absolute feast for the eyes, featuring magnificent sets and truly beautiful costumes. Submerged in glitter, the production was an absolute spectacle. The singing and dancing was mesmerising, and the presentation of the flying carpet in 'A Whole New World' took the audience's breath away. We were also incredibly entertained by the Genie who was absolutely fantastic!
The Year 8 students were all enthralled by the production, and left the theatre very excited. When asked about their favourite moments, they referred not only to the staging, but also the wonderful moments in the narrative about friendship and honesty. For many of their students, it was their first visit to the theatre, and they really did have a wonderful afternoon.
