AS ALWAY HOUSE READY THEMSELVES FOR THEIR FIRST PERFORMANCE OF THE JUNIOR VERSION OF ANNIE LATER TODAY, A SURPRISE MESSAGE ARRIVED FROM ACROSS THE ATLANTIC!
None other than Hollywood A-lister and Iron Man star, Robert Downey Jr, sent a specially recorded message wishing Mr Johnson and the cast and crew ‘break a leg’ as they readied themselves to tread the boards in performances to local primary schools earlier today.
He then went on to congratulate Head of Christ College, Mrs Emma Taylor, congratulations on having such a packed audience on the very night that Wales play Belgium in the European Cup quarter finals. With an emphatic ‘Go Wales’ for the Welsh Football team and a special message for the audience to ‘enjoy the show’!
Mrs Taylor commented, “It’s not everyday you wake up with a message from one of Hollywood’s biggest stars but I’m thrilled for our boys and girls who have dedicated so much time and energy to rehearsals and being the best they can be for the performances to local schools, family and friends over today and tomorrow. I’m sure our production of Annie will be to the same high standards as other productions under the expert direction of our Head of Drama, Mr John Johnson. Thank you Mr Downey Jr for adding that extra bit of encouragement and sparkle from someone who really is at the top of his game.”
