KADA perform “Alice” at the Spring Showcase
We were delighted to welcome students, parents, staff and friends of the academy to our Performing Arts showcase on Tuesday 4th February, supported by Delancey and the KAA Intrepidus Trust.
The showcase was a celebration of the work KIT and their supporters have done since 2018, developing a wide range of enrichment programmes and activities benefiting over 850 KAA students. The aim of the Trust is to provide KAA students with a range of transformative opportunities in sports, life skills, academic enrichment and the arts; opportunities which would otherwise be out of their reach, and beyond the capacity of the school’s budget.
Gabriel (8 Pinter) and Irene (8 Gupta) opened the evening by speaking about their experiences of performing arts and enrichment at KAA and how they have developed their confidence, motivation, engagement and aspiration, helping set them up for long-term success in their lives.
The headlining performance was KADA’s production of Lauren Wade’s Alice which they have devised and created during their enrichment since September. A huge congratulations to the entire cast involved in the showcase, this show would not have been possible without the commitment and energy put into every rehearsal.
The evening also included renditions of The Logical Song by the KAA choir and Runaway Baby by the KAA band. The dance company performed a Wizard of Oz themed dance piece called No Place Like Home. Our talented A level dancers performed their exam piece Bad Liar.
Our thanks to the KAA Intrepidus Trust and their donors, who have given so generously to support Performing Arts at KAA, Pirate Crew for their lighting assistance, the DT department for making the set for Alice, Rose (9 Jones) for her design of the front cover of the programme and our audience of parents, carers, staff, friends and family – thank you for supporting the performing arts at KAA!
