Old Roffensian Revue
Would you like to help or participate?
Drama and Music have always played a huge role in the life of King’s and, over the 26 years since Dr Walker became Head Master, there have been an incredible 75 productions across Prep and Senior Schools. To celebrate this wonderful theatrical heritage and Dr Walker’s time as Head Master, the OR Society has joined forces with the Senior School to produce a Gala Revue to be held in School Hall on the evening of Saturday 30th June 2012. As well as taking the audience on a walk down King’s Memory Lane, the event will also raise money for a wonderful local charity – the Medway Cyrenians.
However, if the evening is to be as successful as we all wish, we need lots of input from you! The producers - Karen Hebden OR, together with Sixth Formers, Harry Bradley, Lana Williams, Tabby Reynolds and Sam Hall - are hoping that the show will feature ORs and others from some of the 26 years of Dr Walker’s headship, touching on highlights of the 75 productions. We are also looking for original contributions to the show in the form of special memories of Dr Walker and of your time at King’s to produce a real tapestry of music, laughter and memories.
If you are a current or former Senior School pupil, member of staff, parent or Old Roffensian, then please come and take part in the Gala, either on stage or behind the scenes, helping to recreate short scenes, speeches or songs from recent and past productions. Contributions may be as simple as a solo song or passage from a play, or as complicated as a group scene or musical number. The content of the show will depend on you, your ideas and memories – and your contacts! Rehearsals will also be flexible, mostly taking place in June (after exams for current pupils).
If you would like to take part in any way, or if you have a memory of King’s during Dr Walker’s 26 years which you would like to have included in the evening, please do get in touch with Karen Hebden, OR, on firstname.lastname@example.org and send your details or your memory. Karen and her team of Senior chool producers, are looking forward to hearing from you as soon as possible! (Please include your name and school dates and distil your memory into 500 words or less! Thank you!)
