What an amazing week we had at Winchester House School working with their Year

8s to workshop, rehearse and perform a Musical in a Week. The piece was called

The Audition and was written by Fabula Arts Director, James Gillam. The students

had given us a list of songs from musicals that they enjoyed singing and a story was

written using those songs. It was very much a bespoke piece of theatre.

The first two days were spent building an ensemble, workshopping ideas and

beginning to block out routines and scenes with James and Emily. The next two days

were focused on fitting all the ideas into one sustainable performance. And then the

final day was performance day!

We are so proud of how the Year 8 group, comprising forty children, nailed their

performance. They developed enormously through the week, learning to work

together to achieve their brilliant outcome. The musical brought them together as a

group to celebrate their time at the school, as they now head off to pastures new.

Fabula Arts are very proud to have been a part of that process. You can see some

photos from the week in the store section of our website.

If you would like more information of how Fabula Arts could devise a bespoke

musical (or play) for your school, please get in touch :
