Yesterday was the third and final performance of our Y6 play called ‘The Other Facts of Life’. It was based on the Morris Glietzman novel of the same name. The script was written by Mrs Nunn.
Adam played the part of Ron, the father of Ben. The play was about Ron’s younger son, Ben, who starts to worry about world issues such as the starving millions and the treatment of animals. Ron does not really understand his son and tries to talk him out of being so serious. It doesn’t help that Ben’s father is a butcher and Ben decides to become a vegetarian!
“Acting in the play was fun but it could be difficult as well. There were many lines to remember and you had to make sure you didn’t get the lines wrong,” said Adam.
Y6 have been rehearsing since the end of the SATs tests in May. “Wednesday evening at 6.30 was the best performance because the audience laughed at the jokes and they were not a tough crowd!” Adam had one fo the main parts. “We had to sign up to say whether we wanted a big part or small part and I really wanted a major part; either the role of Ben or Ron. I was happy with the part I got.”
Adam’s wife in the play was Di, played by Becky. “She was good at influencing the audience,” said Adam. “She was a good singer and actor.”
Here are some photos of the Y6 play in performance.
