Students from Wildcats Theatre School and Post 16 Academy will performing on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th June at the Cresset, Rightwell, Peterborough as part of a two day showcase of children's achievements across the school.

The students, which include children from the part time theatre school as well as the full time Academy will be performing a variety of musical theatre pieces - all to a live band. The show is themed around the title 'Let it Be' and the concept was conceived by full time Year 2 student Lauren Woodward.

"When thinking about the show for next year, I realised there was a running theme every year for our show. We tend to choose a theme of music that sums up and best represents Wildcats, we choose themes that show music as inspiration, excitement, energy and unity. After thinking of these different aspects there was only one band which came to mind, The Beatles. Their music incorporates all these things and is also suitable for every age. It is the definition of classic as their music not only represents a decade, but an era of music which gave freedom and hope to people as we do to the children at Wildcats, showing them that they can do anything they want to do and be anything they want to be." 

The show contains performances from all of the children who attend the part time school. Each week for the past term they have been working on perfecting their individual class pieces, as well as larger group numbers.  The Post 16 Academy have also been working on their medleys from shows including Mary Poppins and Chorus Line.  West End Wildcats will also be performing alongside Gymcats and the Wildcats Stars (for children with additional needs).  Students have also learnt skills required for being part of a show - learning about costume, choreography, stage directions and even how to bow to the audience.

The show includes classic songs from the Beatles including 'Let it Be', 'Hey Jude' and 'Yellow Submarine' and gives all students from age 4 upwards the chance to perform to a sell out crowd.  

Caz Dolby, of Wildcats said 'The show is the chance for all of our students from age 4 upwards to come together and perform as one cast. With the older students supporting the younger ones it is always a great way to show parents and members of the public the 'Wildcats Family' ethos which is embedded in all that we offer. The show has been put together behind the scenes by a fabulous team of teachers and promises to be a great afternoon of entertainment'.
