Hansel and Gretel
For over 25 years Stages School of Dance has choreographed and provided dancers for the Tynemouth Priory Theatre Pantomime! This years production was “Hansel and Gretel” which was a departure from the usual and delved a little into the darker side of the Grimm Fairytales! We were given the opportunity to use some of our younger pupils and give them the experience of being on Stage. Auditions were carried out in September and rehearsals started in earnest in October. Lots of hard work, sweat and tears later, we produced our wonderful dances which included Ballet, Tap and Modern Stage to complement the rest of the action. The Pantomime didn’t disappoint and provided the usual belly laughs, cringe worthy moments and of course, show-stopping dance numbers (oh, yes it did) It is an absolute pleasure working with our Theatrical Community and seeing our fabulous students up on that stage year after year! Well done to all involved!
