Seussical Super Show

Last week’s Christmas show ‘Seussical the Musical’ played to two sold out audiences and was a huge collaborative success throughout the school. 85 students worked hard throughout rehearsals which began in September both on stage and backstage.  Under the guidance of Mrs Rickett, students who were not involved directly on stage helped design the fantastically colourful set and run the technical aspects in rehearsal. During the week of the show, not only did we have a team of students running backstage, but also front of house, selling programmes and dealing with tickets.  Another team of students led by Ms Gibbons also supplied the refreshments during the interval. 

We are very fortunate to have ex-students return for events such as these to share their previous experience with the younger students.  Byron Sunnucks offered his directional skills throughout the rehearsals and Ewan Ashdown-Denney his backstage experience. Paris Goodfellow also assisted with the dance on one evening. A special mention goes out to Mr Will Hesse for giving up all his time last week to light our show.

Our last thank you goes out to parents/carers who continuously support our shows and re-arrange their busy lives around our rehearsal schedule.  It has been a real delight working with such talented, confident young individuals.
