Hey 1/2 Patton class!
We’re so glad you guys enjoyed the show!
Thank you so much for your great questions and here are all of our answers for you:
Could you please remind us of your names?
Kyle (Quasimodo), Georgie (Esmerelda), Nicola (Hugo and Jiacomo), Dan (Phoebus and Father Tourangeau), Lydia (Mamma Frill and Djali) and Lachie (Frollo)
Who were the people moving the stage displays behind the stage?
That was all of the actors, when we’re not on stage we’re helping out with changing the set or doing the sound and lighting cues.
Are you going to make a new show for next year?
We’ll be doing Sleeping Beauty next year!
What show are you going to do next?
We are performing Hunchback of Notre Dame until May and then we will perform Cinderella with a few different actors
Was your show inspired by a movie?
Our show is inspired by a very old story written by Victor Hugo, who wanted to tell a story about the beauty and the magic of the Notre Dame cathedral.
Where did you get your costumes from?
We have a costume designer, Rachel, who makes all of our costumes for us.
How do you do multiple performances in one day without getting tired?
We get lots of energy in the shows from performing to you guys, but other than that we just try to look after ourselves by getting enough sleep, drinking lots of water and getting an energy boost from a good snack like a banana!
How do you get changed into different costumes so quickly?
We practice it a lot and we have zips and velcro that make it as easy as possible to get in and out of costumes quickly.
What was in the chalice?
There’s not really any liquid in there, just some lights and batteries so it can glow.
How did the chalice glow?
2 ways – when someone is holding it there was a little button at the back that they can push to turn the lights on, and when nobody was holding it, it was sitting on a little board that gets plugged in and then the people at the lighting desk can turn it on and off.
Who played the part of the crocodile and the goat?
The crocodile was played by Dan who also played Father Tourangeau and Djali, the goat, was played by Lydia, who also played Mamma Frollo.
What did you do when you were behind stage?
We’re often doing things backstage, such as changing for another character, operating the sound and lighting, changing the set or getting a bit of a water break!
How did you know what to say and when to go on stage?
We have a script that tells us all of those things, then we practice/rehearse the show for a week and learn everything that needs to happen in the show, such as when to come onstage or leave, our choreography for the dances and all of the sound and lighting steps to do. After a week of rehearsing the show we know what to say and where to go 🙂
Do you like strawberries?
We LOVE them!
Thank you for your great questions!
Looking forward to seeing you again next year!
Hello! I’m Keira I asked you a question today it was ‘what inspired you to be an actor’ I got half an answer due to my friend pulling me away to go back to our class I don’t know if you remember but please let me
Yeah I remember! Lots of different things have inspired us to perform. Watching other people doing what they love is very inspiring. It’s also a pretty special feeling when you perform for people for the first time. For me personally, I loved that I could use my voice or performing to help people feel something! I especially love making people laugh.
