Wed 18 Dec – Jack and the Beanstalk, New Brighton

Another couple of cracking school performances today. Sonia must be feeling pretty pleased with herself. Our show is littered with recent hits that the kids can sing along to, but one of the last songs in the show is her singing her single from over 20 years ago – ‘Listen To Your Heart’. The kids love it! I don’t think there’s been a show where they weren’t swaying along, and she always gets a massive round of applause. It’s quite an achievement, as I remember all my school friends being very scathing of any music that was more than a few years old.

I think we’re all going to miss this level of interaction once the school shows are over. I’m not sure parents and grandparents are capable of letting their guard down en masse with such reckless abandon throughout the Christmas holidays, but who knows?
