In preparation for our production of 'Once Upon a Mattress' the whole Year 7 & 8 team were lucky enough to be invited to see the Rangi Ruru/Christ's College production of 'Into the Woods.' What a fabulous production this was. There is no doubt it will give lots of opportunity for reflection as we embark on our production journey. It was great to see many old girls of Selwyn House up on stage. Pauline, you were just a little bit too realistic in the role of the witch. It seems like a natural alter ego coming was coming through.
As a group we were amazed how the actors used every part of their body, their faces and their voices to truly capture their characters.
I really enjoyed Into the Woods. My favourite part would have to be when the Granny came out of the Wolf's stomach and yelled "KILL THE DEVIL!!!!" I laughed so hard I felt like crying.-Sarah Br
'Into the Woods' was great. I loved how the characters were really into their roles and made the viewing experience that much better. -Sarah Be.
