Production Writing


I tiptoed onto the rough carpet. I was very excited. I could not wait. I galloped up stairs to get the flash uniform for kapa haka. I got changed into it. I also got my eyeliner on. I said to Hannah "I hate makeup".

Then I got my ukulele. The colour of it was light white. I felt very apprehensive. After the people doing the first show was off. The ukulele went on. My face went fiery red.
We were going to play Twist again, Hand Jive and lots more. I had a big clown smile on my face. My knees were knobbling like mad. When the ukulele was finished.

The kapa haka was on. I walked nervously onto the stage. I looked at all the people. I was in the front row. When that was finished. I went off stage. I only had two more performances left.

Then another class came on stage. I sprinted up the wonky stairs to the changing rooms to get my costume on. There were boys in there so I went to change in the toilets with Serena. She went in the shower and closed the curtain. I went out side the shower so she would not see me. She locked the door. When she had finished. She unlocked the door. But the door was locked. We could not get out. WE WERE STUCK!!! Finally we worked out how to open the door. It was a relief. I sprinted upstairs like a crazy chicken to dressing room 6. I was getting my shiny new tray ready for our dance. I could not find my green cup but that was okay. Because I did not think that anyone would see it and they did not.

The crowd was very captivated in our dance. I had a funny feeling in my brain that something was going to go wrong. After the dance. I felt happy that I did it. Now I only had one dance to go. It was the whole school dance. When Stephen showed us the super video. I was amazed to see everyone doing quite a good job. It was awesome.

The teachers dance was on. I thought they rocked the whole stage to bits. They were fabulace. Stephen was wearing a long orange dress with blue high heels. Stephen said "I can not dance in these shoes". Other teachers were wearing weird and yucky clothes. I tried to laugh but I gulped. It felt like a whole lot of worms had just whooshed out of my mouth. I was really nervous about the whole thing. The teachers went off stage and stood behind us. The song that the whole school was doing was take it easy. We did it. It was like the whole school had just done a fashion show! After that we had to find our parents and go home.

I was pleased with myself. I think I did great. The costumes were nice and I think they looked best on Georgia and Amy. I think that our dance was the best. I absouloutly loved production. It was so hot at the theatre that it felt like someone was plastering me down into a fire. When I got home. I got my PJ's on and dragged myself to bed. But as I closed my eyes. I thought to myself. Another old ordinary day at school tomorrow.
