The Cinderella Blog – Week 6 & 7

Week 6 of rehearsals and things are really coming together. I’m Charlotte, one of the newbies at SMP. From day one I have been made to feel so welcome and the quality of the cast is really impressive. The enthusiasm and energy is infectious, it’s been a delight and I can’t wait to get into the theatre and show Chingford what we’re made of!

It’s been a vocal heavy week, and my first one at all 3 rehearsals, everyone’s been working super hard. Monday we set the opening song and the ladies of the cast set One Thing. There are so many amazing voices in our ensemble, it’s going to sound great with a full band!

Wednesday we recapped all the songs we’ve set so far, something my previous companies have never done. Practice really does make perfect because I can hear the increase in quality already.

Sunday we set the Fireworks scene, the kids are just too good! They’re such little sponges, I’m amazed by how quickly they pick things up. This scene is going to be so magical, glitter everywhere!

If you can’t tell, I’m super excited about being a part of this show. I hope you’ve all got your tickets because they’re selling fast and there isn’t long to go now. See you at the ball!

Week 7

Welcome to another week of blogs! My name is Hatice and I am a part of the chorus for SMP Cinderella. We were going over the song and dance for Best day of my life by the American Authors. It was so much fun! The dance and song has really come together, everyone just smiling their way even after being so tired. With so many of us dancing at once everyone is being careful to not tread on anyone’s feet!

This Monday just gone we all worked on Re-wright the stars, it was such a beautiful dance showing the connection between Cinderella and the prince, as the ensemble we were trying to keep them apart throughout the dance. It was quite majestic the way the dance flowed. The way all the girls moved with their partners.

Here we have a quick but cute snap shot of Fay, Lucy and Jack

Can’t wait for the next rehearsal to see what dance and song number we will be doing next!

Ohh what fun awaits us?!
