2018 Junior School Production - The AristoCats Kids
Kristin and Disney magic delighted over 1,100 audience members who were privileged enough to witness the joy of The AristoCats KIDS, performed by every student of Kristin’s Junior School on Friday the 16 of November. This adaptation of the 1970 American animated feature film is specifically tailored for performers of the Junior School age – all of whom had the opportunity to shine on the Kristin stage as a very special member of the 460 strong cast.
It is this inclusive opportunity that shows the spirit of the Junior School production in full force. The earlier performance began with four of the Year 6 lead characters (Thomas O’Malley, General Napoleon, Duchess and Roquefort) bringing the youngest members of the cast, the Kindergarten students, onto the stage to perform the opening number. The unity shown between the oldest and youngest performers was, in a word, inspiring. From here, the production highlighted the talents of all our vocalists, dancers and actors, through jazzy musical numbers, kitten adventures, hound dog marches and frog filled rivers!
Amongst our hard-working students, each production area was well supported by a huge team of parents, community members and students from all three schools. It is only with the encouragement of these individuals that Kristin Productions can continue to reach the standard that has become synonymous with our name. Every student proudly wore their own AristoCats costume and danced with passion on the vibrant set – all craftily created by extremely generous members of our Performing Arts community. I cannot thank them enough for the gift they all continue to offer to our students.
Each Junior School class has been immersed in the world of the AristoCats this term, and were ably prepared to take the stage by the talented and passionate Junior School Performing Arts team. Combined with the support of the Junior School Management team, the Junior School staff, and a brilliant Production Team, the AristoCats KIDS will be remembered for years to come as another unique Kristin Production experience for all involved.
