OV’s spirit:

THE GREATEST SHOW

 

We hope you have your tickets for next week.  Orchard Vale is abuzz with classes practicing

their songs and lines. The costumes are taking shape and the scenery is looking amazing for

our performances on:

 

Monday 10th December 13:30— (Nursery, Rec, KS1 & KS2)

Tuesday 11th December 09:30 - (Nursery, Rec, KS1 & KS2)

Tuesday 11th December 18:30 - (Rec, KS1 & KS2)

Wednesday 12th December 18:30 (Rec, KS1 & KS2)

 

For evening performances please could the children could arrive in class at 6pm so they have enough time to put on costumes but do not have to wait too long before the start of the show.   You will be able to enter classes as normal via the playground.  

 

Please could we ask you to leave your child with the class teacher in order that staff can get

everyone changed into their costumes and ready to make their entrance on time.

 

If you are watching the performance please could we ask you to queue for entry by the Community Room in the main courtyard near the school office. The doors will be opened by our front of house staff who will welcome you into the school hall and show you to your seats.

 

Christmas Hampers – Raffle

We have a wonderful Christmas hampers to be won at each performance.  Tickets will be sold at the door prior to entering the hall at £1 per strip.   Winners will be drawn at the end of the performance once the children have returned to their classes.

 

We anticipate the performance lasting for approximately 1½ hours so the children should be ready for

collection from classrooms at approximately 8pm.  However, we will be able to give you a more precise time after our rehearsal on Monday.  

 

If you are attending an evening performance could we ask you to wait in the hall until all the children have left and are safely in their classes.  

 

Staff will ensure every child is safely collected by you or your designated adult at approximately 8pm.  If you are not attending the evening performances please collect your child from their classroom after they have taken off their costumes.  Entry will be via the playground.

 

We look forward to welcoming you to one of our performances and thank you all for your continued

 "This Is Me" 

I'm not a stranger to the dark
Hide away, they say
'Cause we don't want your broken parts
I've learned to be ashamed of all my scars
Run away, they say
No one will love you as you are


But I won't let them break me down to dust
I know that there's a place for us
For we are glorious


When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I'm meant to be, this is me
Look out 'cause here I come
And I'm marching on to the beat I drum
I'm not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me


Another round of bullets hits my skin
Well, fire away 'cause today, I won't let the shame sink in
We are bursting through the barricades
And reaching for the sun (we are warriors)
Yeah, that's what we've become


Won't let them break me down to dust
I know that there's a place for us
For we are glorious


When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
Gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I'm meant to be, this is me
Look out 'cause here I come
And I'm marching on to the beat I drum
I'm not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me


...This is me

 

And I know that I deserve your love

 

There's nothing I'm not worthy of
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
This is brave, this is bruised
This is who I'm meant to be, this is me


Look out 'cause here I come (look out 'cause here I come)
And I'm marching on to the beat I drum (marching on, marching, marching on)
I'm not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me


(Whenever the words wanna cut me down
I'll send the flood to drown them out)
This is me

"How Far I'll Go"


I've been staring at the edge of the water
Long as I can remember, never really knowing why
I wish I could be the perfect daughter
But I come back to the water, no matter how hard I try


Every turn I take, every trail I track
Every path I make, every road leads back
To the place I know where I cannot go
Where I long to be


See the line where the sky meets the sea
It calls me
And no one knows, how far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I'll know
If I go there's just no telling how far I'll go


I know everybody on this island seems so happy, on this island
Everything is by design
I know everybody on this island has a role, on this island
So maybe I can roll with mine


I can lead with pride, I can make us strong
I'll be satisfied if I play along
But the voice inside sings a different song
What is wrong with me?


See the light as it shines on the sea
It's blinding
But no one knows, how deep it goes
And it seems like it's calling out to me, so come find me
And let me know
What's beyond that line, will I cross that line?


See the line where the sky meets the sea
It calls me
And no one knows, how far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I'll know
How far I'll go

"I Have A Dream"

I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream


I have a dream, a fantasy
To help me through reality
And my destination makes it worth the while
Pushing through the darkness still another mile
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream


I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream

 

"Make Your Own Kind Of Music"

 

Nobody can tell you
There's only one song worth singing
They may try and sell you
Cause it hangs them up
To see someone like you


But you gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind of music
Even if nobody else sings along


You're gonna be nowhere
The loneliest kind of lonely
It may be rough going
Just to do your thing is the hardest thing to do


But you gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind of music
Even if nobody else sings along


So if you cannot take my hand
And if you must be going, I will understand


You gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind of music
Even if nobody else sings along
You gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own kind of song
Make your own kind of music
Even if nobody else sings along
You gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own kind of song
Make your own kind of music
Even if nobody else sings along


No, no, no, no
Even if nobody else sings along
If nobody else sings along

 

"A Million Dreams"


I close my eyes and I can see
The world that's waiting up for me
That I call my own
Through the dark, through the door
Through where no one's been before
But it feels like home


They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy
They can say, they can say I've lost my mind
I don't care, I don't care, so call me crazy
We can live in a world that we design


'Cause every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it's gonna take
A million dreams for the world we're gonna make


There's a house we can build
Every room inside is filled
With things from far away
The special things I compile
Each one there to make you smile
On a rainy day


They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy
They can say, they can say we've lost our minds
I don't care, I don't care if they call us crazy
Run away to a world that we design


Every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it's gonna take
A million dreams for the world we're gonna make

 

However big, however small
Let me be part of it all
Share your dreams with me
You may be right, you may be wrong
But say that you'll bring me along
To the world you see
To the world I close my eyes to see
I close my eyes to see


Every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
A million dreams, a million dreams
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it's gonna take
A million dreams for the world we're gonna make


For the world we're gonna make
