After all the hard work, we put on five good performances of 'Minimus the Musical' in London and Monmouth. Over 1000 people saw the show -750 in Monmouth and 250 in London. Several schools were able to come, including a Prep school which has not yet used Minimus. Their dynamic teacher of Latin came to the June training day, was hooked, has persuaded their Head to introduce it in Yr 4 & 5 and brought a group to see the show. (and has written a very complimentary email!) Many of our sponsors such as Peter Wiseman, Anthony Bowen, Christopher Liddle, Jeremy Morse & Belinda - all of whom have been very generous to Minimus - attended one of the performances.
I was very proud of the cast and the orchestra also sounded good. We came up to London in a huge coach complete with all the instruments, costumes and props, including Barates' cart, specially made for this production by a member of our DT department!
The DVD of the Musical is now available at a cost of £16 plus postage. Click here for an order form.
