MTC receives Gold Award

MTC has several different partners in the community, one of them being theYouth Service.

As part of this partnership we are required to under go inspections. Consequently, last term our Senior Drama classes where observed by members of the Youth Commissioning Team and we are pleased to announce that we received a Gold Award for our class delivery, and apparently not many organisations manage to achieve this. So we are very pleased with ourselves.

The award can be seen in reception.

Welcome Back letter from Penni

Dear All,

MTC Team hopes you had a great Summer and are looking forward to the next few months of Show Preparation and somewhere in the middle of that … Christmas!

We had a very busy Summer holiday of workshops, the busiest we have ever had.  Carnival week was a massive success culminating in us winning First place in our Class on the night and then subsequently winning the vote for Best Overall entry! So well done to everyone who helped and everyone who took part.

Our new timetable launches this week and I ask you to bear with us as we settle in to the new arrangements, but for those of you who are wondering, we needed to change the Modern classes to during the week as we could not fit them all in on Saturdays and whilst we were doing that we thought it best to streamline the other classes at the same time.

The show is booked for:

Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 January at The Towngate Theatre Basildon.

Additional Rehearsals:

  • Weds 25 October
  • Sunday 10 December
  • Sunday 17 December
  • Weds 27 December
  • Thurs 28 December
  • Friday 5 January
  • Saturday 6 January
  • Sunday 7 January

Children will be needed all day or part of the day depending on what we need to cover on that day.

Show registration dates are:

  • Saturday 7 October 10.30 – 12.30
  • Saturday 14 October 2pm – 4pm

You MUST come along during one of these times if you wish to take part in the show, otherwise we will assume you do not wish to.  This will not affect your child’s attendance, as we will all learn the show pieces anyway.

There will be additional costs involved in the show, but we do try to keep these to a minim.

We are also very lucky to have secured tickets to see Lee Mead in Panto at the Cliffs in Jack and the Beanstalk, front row, opening night Saturday 16 Dec Evening performance at a reduced cost of £28.50, these will be sold on a first come first served basis, please let us know asap if you would like some tickets.

Hope you all have a fabulous half term.

Penni and the Team x
