"St Joseph’s School Easter Production 2014
Sitting in the School Hall, I wait in anticipation to watch my fifth Easter production. I wonder how the famous Easter Story will be retold this time. Mrs Kee always breathes new life into her Easter (and Nativity) shows, enabling the children to really get to know the people who lived in Jesus’ time and to understand the events that they lived through.
This year sees some children travelling back in time to the Holy Land. They witness the events of the final week of Jesus’ life; Palm Sunday, the Last Supper, the garden of Gethsemane, the crucifixion of Christ and the resurrection of Christ. All are brought to life by the children. The children who travel on the time-train make thought-provoking comments about what they see.
The elements of sadness are tempered with scenes of light-heartedness and catchy songs. The Easter story is portrayed in a way that educates the children. As for the audience, we revel in the children’s acting, dancing and singing, whilst being reminded of the important themes of our Catholic faith.

"'The 'Easter Stations' play by Sally Kee really brought the Passion of Jesus to life for the children at Holy Family School. The catchy songs retell the story clearly and in a child friendly manner. Our children now have a clear understanding of Easter and what it means to us as Catholics. Thank you for working so hard to create this wonderful production.'
Mrs Caswell and Mrs Thomas Holy Family R.C. W.G.C
"Mrs Kee’s musicals are always thoroughly enjoyable but not just for the parent watching – the children really enjoy the experience and still recall the characters they play and songs they have sung. In the weeks before the performances my house is always filled with Mrs Kee’s wonderful songs.
Geraldine Vajda (St Joseph's R.C. J.M.I School Secretary)
"'What a wonderful production; it really brought the 'Easter Story' to life. Catchy music which the children picked up quickly; 'Bugsy Malone' meets 'Oliver!' Highly Recommended!"
Eimear Merton (Year 3 Teacher St. Joseph's R.C. J.M.I Hertford)
"Sally's Easter play 'Easter Stations' was a joy to work on. Well written, rhythmic music, memorable songs - the children took to it like ducks to water. The fact that the play was unknown to the children five weeks before the performances bears testament to just how good Sally's plays are. Rehearsals were always a pleasure, and the two performances were greeted with much acclaim by the audience."
