At the end of June our cast of students from across Years 7 – 11 (and Mr Rushton!) staged our long-awaited musical, Little Shop of Horrors. The performances took place over four days, to over six hundred people and were a huge success.

Following auditions last September, we were able to cast a very strong team of principals, supporting cast and ensemble and rehearsals began in earnest. Since then, students spent hundreds of hours rehearsing – up to three evenings a week, with additional weekend and holiday slots to ensure that the show was ready for opening night. Throughout the process, our students worked so hard, gave full commitment and their determination to deliver great performances was exceptional.

Behind the scenes, we had a team of students, ex-students and staff who gave their time and energy to complete important roles such as costume, set, lighting design and backstage supervision, all of which helped make the show a real ‘whole-school’ production.
The week finished with an after-show party and awards along with many questions relating to “what show are we doing next?”. Watch this space!
