Have you ever wanted to have the live feeling of a musical? Or have you ever wanted to see a
representation of some musicals? If this is the case then the night of the musicals is definitely
something spectacular to see.
The palace theatre takes pride in their appearance with the layout of the performance room. The
walls were a cream colour with details in the wallpaper and the skirting boards. The light fixtures
looked very royal like with the lighting dim before the performance started. The red curtain looked
velvet and it was a bold colour in the theatre compared to the cream walls. Faith said “feel like I’m
meeting the queen”, indeed it did feel like we were going to have a royal visit. The palace theatre
has an overall posh persona that they take pride in upkeeping. It was a busy night with a lot of
elderly people there to see their kids/ grandchildren performing.
When the performances started it was very magical with how the kids were performing. They had
brilliant costumes for each act, some were extremely representative to the characters from the
song/ film they were performing from. There were many different types of dance that they
incorporated into the acts such as ballet, breakdancing, gymnastics, tap dance and 60’s style dance.
The main type used was ballet where they wore pointe shoes for a couple of their presentations
which they executed beautifully. Considering the ages that were on the stage they all gave brilliant
enthusiastic energy and most of them remembered the choreography. Although the younger kids
were confused a lot of the time for their placing on the stage but they still looked cute even though
they didn’t do it right. They all had a lot of confidence for going onto the stage and performing. the
choreography was well planned out for each performance. They could have tried to have more
space, as a couple of times some people got hit but it was well concealed by the dancers. When
rehearsing they could try and do it in a smaller area so they can work on their spacing. Their singing
was good and nice to listen to. They were all brilliant performances to see.
