ABOUT THE PROJECT
WE ARE THRILLED TO BE ABLE TO MAKE THIS PROJECT AS INCREDIBLE AS WE IMAGINED WHEN WE FIRST HAD TO MAKE THE DECISION TO CANCEL THE PRODUCTION. WE WILL BE PULLING OUT ALL THE STOPS TO CREATE FOUR AWESOME MUSIC VIDEOS THAT WILL CAPTURE THE HARD WORK THAT WAS PUT IN TO THIS PRODUCTION.
OUR WIGLE TEAM WILL BE JOINED BY PAINTED LIFE PRODUCTIONS WHO WILL BE FILMING AND EDITING THE VIDEOS TO REALLY ADD THE PROFESSIONAL POLISH WE USUALLY ASSOCIATE WITH OUR STAGE PRODUCTIONS... EXPECT GREAT QUALITY VIDEOS, MODERN CAMERA TECHNIQUES AND MAYBE EVEN SOME MAGIC...!
THE CHILDREN THAT WERE INVOLVED IN THE PRODUCTION WILL GET REHEARSE AND FILM THE VIDEOS OVER FOUR WEEKS IN OUR STUDIO - ALL OF THIS IS COMPLETELY FREE AS THE PROJECT IS BEING FUNDED BY THE ARTS COUNCIL.
WE AIM TO MAKE THIS WHOLE EXPERIENCE FUN AND INTERACTIVE WITH NO PRESSURE OR STRESS PLACED ON ALL OF THOSE INVOLVED. THIS IS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY AND SOMETHING WE WANT TO ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF!
THE SONGS WE ARE AIMING TO RECORD BOTH VOCALS AND MOVEMENTS FOR ARE; A WHOLE NEW WORLD, HIGH ADVENTURE, PRINCE ALI AND THESE PALACE WALLS. (PLEASE NOTE THESE COULD BE SUBJECT TO CHANGE DEPENDING ON SIGN UPS)

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THE PRINCIPLE CASTS OF ALADDIN
REHEARSAL AND FILMING DATES
Rehearsals will kick start at the beginning of the summer term and will run for the first four weeks (week commencing 19th April - week commencing 10th May.) We are planning on rehearsing for the first two weeks and then filming the second two weeks. If you are unable to make every rehearsal but are able to make at least one of the filming days we would still love for you to be involved. You must have attended at least one of the rehearsals before the filming commences.
WHAT TO WEAR
For the filming, children are asked to wear Wigle t-shirts and black bottoms. Bottoms should ideally be dance trousers, jogging bottoms or leggings but jeans could also be worn. If you have not got a Wigle t-shirt there are some available to buy on the shop page of our website. (We will be applying a special discount for April.) If you are unable to purchase a Wigle uniform t-shirt we will allow PLAIN BLACK t-shirts as an alternative.
HOW TO SIGN UP
At the bottom of this page there are the session options for you to sign up to the classes and recording sessions. These classes are free but in order to allow us to create registers and to know who has signed up to the project you are asked to add them to basket and proceed to checkout. Apologies - it will ask you for your address information as if you were purchasing, but no money will be charged.
WHERE TO WATCH
These videos will be the highlight of our A Night In At The Musicals Concert that will be streamed at the end of May. This concert will feature a collection of performances from our cancelled and rearranged productions. There will be no charge for this concert but we will be opening it up for donations for a chosen charity. A confirmed date and an announcement on our charity of choice will be made in the coming weeks.
TUESDAY AND FRIDAY JUNIOR CLASSES
Our Tuesday and Friday Junior musical theatre classes who were working towards Aladdin have since got stuck in to their MOANA rehearsals.
We have made the decision to maintain our focus on readying the casts for their performance coming up at the end of this term but would still love for them to be involved in this experience.
The children will take a week off their Moana preparation to film and record vocals to A Whole New World to then be featured in the music video project. This will give them the experience of the filming project whilst ensuring their main focus remains on their upcoming stage performance.
The important information on this filming session are listed below. You DO NOT need to sign up for the session - your place in the class is confirmed by your term fee for our summer classes.
