Last night, we went to see Eleanor perform with her drama group in The Passion, a rock opera by Adrian Snell.
The musical is based on the Gospel accounts of the last week of Jesus' life, beginning with the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem and ending with the crucifixion and resurrection.
Eleanor took the leading female role of Mary Mother of Jesus and sang a beautiful solo, Son Of The World, as well as singing a duet, Jesus Alive!, with a friend from school who took the part of Mary Magdalene.
Afterwards, we went in to the parish centre for refreshments where Eleanor's recently retired singing teacher came and found us. It was a lovely surprise for Eleanor as she didn't know she was coming to see the play.
The last performance is tonight, after which, Eleanor will be taking a break from her drama group until her exams are finished. It's been quite full on for her rehearsing as well as revising for her GCSE's, but she's been working very hard so that she could give her best.
