Thanks to

The Rickstones School, Witham — The Headmistress, whose school has been invaded by the 'Xingu' for two terms! Mrs. S. Williams, Head of Home Economics, Mr E. Orcese, Head of Art, Mr. K. Jarvis, Head of Creative Faculty, who together with their pupils, created 40 of the costumes, 50 stomping sticks and a quantity of small percussion instruments.

Mr. A. Fry, until recently Head of Music and Drama at Rickstones, whose lunch hours, far from being oases of quiet in the hurly-burly of a busy school day, have been filled with rehearsals of chanting hunters.

The Bramstone School, Witham, Mr. Nigel Barber, Mrs. Lara Barber who have provided an invaluable link between the musical direction of the chorus and the unreasonable requirements of the production team.

The staff of Essex Education Department’s East Mersea camp site, who found their site turned into a Brazilian jungle during a 'Xingu' rehearsal weekend!

The Essex youth workers and teachers who have worked as volunteers on the technical team and acted as dressers and make-up artists to the children.

Mr. Owen Harrington, Storekeeper of the Essex Community Education Service, who with his assistant, regularly turns out at all hours and at weekends to transport the Orchestra, its instruments, and recently all the 'Xingu' apparatus.
