Performing Arts is a key part of Edisford's wide and diverse curriculum and all children, from Early Years to Year 6, fully embrace the performing ethos.
Recent Key Stage 2 productions include the highly ambitious 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat' by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber and 'Cats' by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
To earn their Performing Arts badge, children participate fully in all stages of preparing a production: making props and costumes, learning complex lyrics and choreographing dance routines, supporting their peers in rehearsals and final performances...
Not to be outdone by the juniors, infant performances are truly magical, with children from Nursery to Year 2 retelling the traditional Christmas story in wonderfully upbeat ways. Recent performances include 'Prickly Hay' and 'Humph the Camel'.
Proud parents and grandparents are always amazed to see the confidence, enthusiasm and pure talent demonstrated by Edisford children.

This year promises to be yet another fantastic round of performances as rehearsals have begun in earnest for all of our key stage shows.
Children in Early Years (Nursery and Reception) are preparing a wonderful nativity entitled: "We're going on a baby hunt"!
Key Stage 1 children (Years 1 and 2) are rehearsing a rip-roaringly funny "Lights, Camel, Action!"
nativity with a Strictly Come Christmas theme!
Carrying on our musical theatre run in recent years, Junior children (Years 3 to 6) will perform an absolute classic this year: Oliver!
Sneak peeks at rehearsals going on across school show that all three shows will be phenomenal; we can't wait!
