Ye-Ha!"Ye-Ha!" is this year’s Stobo production. It squeezes all the fun and adventure of the old west into a wonderfully wild, musical comedy. We would like as many of the Year 3 – Year 6 pupils as possible to stay to enrichment each Wednesday (certainly those with major roles to play once auditions have taken place). Sessions initially will involve enjoying and learning the lively songs and familiarisation with the script before auditions in December. We will then begin working through the script scene by scene to dramatise the story and bring it to life. There may even be opportunities to work in small groups to begin making props. EveningJ3 - J6
