What a show! Well done to all our amazing, talented students and staff involved.
With a break of over 3 years due to the pandemic, the annual school production returns and is hailed a huge success. Our version of the musical ‘Grease’ was performed over three nights in the Stanier Hall for audiences to enjoy, plus a matinee performance to Year 7 as a reward for attendance and behaviour.
Students from years 7 to 13 took part in the show including the hits we know and love “You’re the one that I want”, “Sandy” and “Grease”, which celebrated the collaboration between the Music, Drama and Art departments.
Headteacher, Mr Cooper said “it was a real pleasure to see everyone on stage enjoying themselves, whether that was on the stage singing and dancing, solo performances, playing in the band, working on the set, lighting, costumes or behind the stage”. My sincere thanks go to all the staff involved in making this such a special event and to our local community for showing their support”.
Mr Cooper also invited all cast members to a special Headteacher’s Breakfast to celebrate. Students enjoyed ‘Grease’ themed cupcakes, a hot chocolate drink and awarded individual certificates. Mr Cooper congratulated everyone in the part they played in making the production a success. He also gave thanks for their time given to rehearsals during evenings and weekends.
There are already talks about what the next performance is going to be – you’ll have to watch this space to find out!
