There’s still time to buy tickets for tomorrow or Thursday!

Mrs Richards, the cast and crew of our senior production are at the Puppet Theatre all day today for a technical rehearsal, in preparation for tomorrow’s opening night of Daisy Pulls it Off.   Please come and support them and enjoy a splendid evening’s entertainment! Tickets are still available from Reception if you have mislaid your order form.

Daisy Pulls it Off by Denise Deegan is a romp through life in a 1920s girls’ boarding school…as the poster says: “an absolutely topping comedy about midnight feasts, dorm fights, spiffing hockey matches and hidden treasure!”

GCSE drama production: My Sister Died

Year 10 GCSE drama pupils performed the second of their two practical pieces to camera for assessment today. Entitled My Sister Died, the prepared improvisation explored the relationship between two sisters, one of whom is dying of breast cancer. The piece was based on a true story the girls had stumbled on while researching the ‘Sisters’ topic Mrs Richards had given them to explore. According to Miss Cushing, who was in the audience, they achieved “a stunning, mature performance which far exceeded any expectations.” Well done, Charlotte B, Grace, Francesca and Charlotte S…and good luck with the written exam still to come!
