Last week our talented Oliver cast of over 80 students performed over 4 nights to an audience of almost 500 friends and family.
Our students blew us away with their performances and we were so proud of the way that they collaborated and supported each other across all year groups from Years 7-13.
In the context of the last 18 months, the opportunity for students to work together on such a project was so rare and the students showed such commitment and resilience to achieve this goal. It was clear through the reaction of the audience and the students' tears on the last night that this was a special opportunity that the students really did relish & appreciate.
Below is just some of the lovely feedback that we have received from audience members:
‘Such a talented cast of students, I can’t believe how fearless they all are. It takes a lot to stand on your own in front of an audience but they all did an amazing job’.
‘It was really such a wonderful show to watch, all the cast were utterly fabulous! Really well polished, the whole way through’.
‘How very impressive it was! There is some serious talent there! Incredible. Well done to all involved for their hard work and dedication. It was a truly magnificent show’.
‘How lovely it was to be back in a performance setting to see what the students are capable of! The sixth formers were a particular joy to watch, but all the cast really did you proud. They were funny, dedicated, and extremely talented, and really brought the show to life’.
Well done to all involved, we truly could not be prouder and we already miss being in the rehearsal room with you!
