Exciting Changes at Dramacube Hampton Hill
January 2019 will see us embark on our eleventh full-scale musical theatre production and what better way to start the year than with a Disney classic – Aladdin Jr.
With the start of the new year will come a number of changes for Dramacube Hampton Hill.
Firstly, the formation of our Hampton Hill Green cast, who will rehearse at Hampton Hill Theatre every Tuesday from 5pm to 7.15pm.
The new cast will be the first (by one day!) to benefit from our new way of working, with a stronger focus on the creative process of learning the show, before parts are allocated at half term.
Our new way of working will see all students become familiar with the story, the characters, songs, routines and scenes, ensuring they are fully engaged in the production from start to finish. We are excited about this change, and based on the parent feedback we’ve had so far, we are confident this will enhance the experience students have with us further still.
There will also be a complete change in personnel for both the Hampton Hill Green (Tuesdays) and Hampton Hill Blue (Wednesdays) casts, with Steve Leslie returning to work with experienced teacher and director, Marc Batten.
Marc joined the team back in the summer, supporting on our Moana holiday workshops at the Exchange theatre in Twickenham, and will take over from Matt Bunn.
Having worked as Head of Performing Arts at a number of local High Schools, and directed numerous productions from Shakespeare to musicals, Marc will bring great experience and knowledge to Dramacube Hampton Hill and we look forward to working with him.
Our Hampton Hill Blue cast (Wednesdays) will continue to rehearse at the United Reformed Church in Hampton Hill from 5pm – 7.15pm and we look forward to working with you all on Aladdin Jr.
But before that of course, we have an exciting journey ahead of us with our Christmas production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, which is taking place at Hampton Hill Theatre on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd December.
You can book tickets for the production via our website. We look forward to seeing you at the show.
