Buckingham Park pupils in Years 4 and 5 (90 children) participated in Energize at the Waterside Theatre yesterday - and they were amazing!
The children performed 'Play on Words' alongside children from other local schools. P'Play on Words' is a collaborative item written by local music teacher, Jane Smith, who also rehearsed and conducted the piece.
'Play on Words' is the story of school children discovering the joy of poetry.
Energize is a festival provided by the Bucks Area Education Alliance. The festival started over 20 years ago at the Swan Theatre in High Wycombe. Energize is now at the Waterside Theatre in Aylesbury so that the children of Aylesbury Town can share in the magic of taking part in the performing arts on a professional stage.
The festival is a combination of individual school performances, couples with the collaboration of many schools coming together to create a larger piece of work incorporating dance, music and drama.
Our children and staff all worked really hard in preparation for the performance and their loud applause was very well deserved!
We want to thank the following people and organisations for their support:
Jane Smith (composer and conducter)
Victoria Gutteridge (choreographer)
The Ensergize Committee
Our volunteer costume designers (parents, friends and staff)
The Bucks UTC for making our swords
All the staff who put so much work in to the event
Parents and families who supported the chidlren and to those who came along to watch
