In June 2018, TADAA put on its Summer Extravaganza, a show which we used to raise money for headset microphones for the company. The performance proved to be a success and in the end we raised a total profit of £625! Thank you to everyone who took part and those who came to watch and support us – we couldn’t have done it without you! The show consisted of monologues, solo songs, devised pieces, Musical Theatre numbers and a half hour long Physical Theatre inspired piece created by our Act 2 Drama Students! We only had 6 weeks to put the show on and the outcome was outstanding, especially considering how little time we had. We are so proud of all the students who took part and would like to thank them for their hard work and determination.
In December 2018, we put on TADAA’s very own Pantomime! TADAA had never done a Pantomime before and we believed it was a great opportunity for the students to experience a different acting style. The Pantomime was written by our Instructors Ciara and Katrina and we tried to ensure every student had a decent amount of stage time. It incorporated our Musical Theatre and Drama Students from all age groups and we hope to offer more performance opportunities like this for the students at TADAA. The Panto achieved 2 sold out performances and proved to be popular with all who came to watch it. We are incredibly proud of everyone who took part.
In early 2019, TADAA once again took part in Portsmouth Music and Drama Festival. We entered a large group Musical Theatre piece but this time using the musical Les Miserables. We are delighted to say that we won the category, achieving honours and a fantastic mark of 100 out of 100! Well done everyone!
We are hoping to put on a summer showcase performance in 2019, incorporating all students from all of our classes. Watch this space for more details!
