#1 Son Ollie knocks it out of the park – final solo SOTA performance
Wow is all I can say. You should also have a look at my FaceBook, if you can, to see the most amazing reviews from friends and family across the planet. This is #1 Son Ollie knocks it out of the park – final solo SOTA performance. His last one at SOTA before he does NS and then on to his decision of Uni. This is IB marked so a critical piece of work.
He checked in with the family first to get endorsement for the very sensitive subject. Of course, we all agreed. He wrote this amazing piece himself and all the ‘trimmings’ you need, as you will see. The written content is stunning, inclusive, thought-provoking and tear-jerking. And that goes for those that knew and were impacted so heavily by Naoko’s loss, and also for those that did not know us at the time.
I have told him that this has feelers into Gervais’ Afterlife. It’s sort of bittersweet symphony. You can’t help but cry and smile and at the very same time. Amy said it was so very sad and nice at the same time. That really does sum it up. In fact, I have sent it to Gervais.
So to close very proud Dad, extremely proud Dad actually. It’s a keeper this one for sure, and I just hope IB look at it and mark accordingly. Let me just add that he was under massive pressure as day #1 of final performance the sound crew cocked up. He had the choice to do it again. A week later he did. Half-way through #2 performance, the part where he goes outside of the theatre – bugger me there are loads of kids on the floor right outside the door, so the poor guy had to do take #3. And he nailed it, absolutely nailed it.
An incredible piece of work Son. Be proud and be humbled by the amazing words being written about you matey! Well done and love from Dad, Mum, Amy and Jude Jude.
