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!”

Calling HOHS Senior Thespians and stage managers…

The new Senior Production is under starters’ orders! This year it will be Daisy Pulls it Off, an adaptation of a classic girls’ school story set in an arguably more innocent age and full of hilarious characters and splendid scrapes. Expect sly wit and a big heart! The production  will be performed at the Norwich Puppet Theatre in March 2016.

Thank you to everyone who came along for the workshop auditions last Tuesday –  but it is not too late if you would like to be cast!  Another workshop audition will take place tomorrow –  Tuesday 21st – at 4.00pm, either in the Barn or in Room 14 – to be announced. Anyone from Year 7 and above is welcome. I am also looking for  stage management members, so if being back stage appeals, please come along and join the fun!  Jenny Richards

Triumphant return for Cindy Fellaless – Senior Production

After its unfortunate postponement owing to illness a few weeks ago, Cindy Fellaless, our senior school production, blazed back with glorious pizazz last night, providing a great evening’s entertainment to the appreciative audience at Norwich’s Puppet Theatre.

Employing a clever ‘play (or in this case, pantomime) within a play’ device, the witty dialogue and well-paced action showcased the comedic timing, acting, dancing and singing talents of its young cast, under the skilled direction of Head of Drama Jenny Richards who also wrote the script.

Remember – you can still order photographs until Friday 29th April. Order slips are with the photo display in the “Black hole” and should be returned to Reception with the appropriate monies, please.

“Hugely entertaining” Cindy Fellaless is on again tonight!

Don’t forget you can see our excellent senior production TONIGHT at the Norwich Puppet Theatre.  Please don’t miss out on this great production! There are still some tickets available from the Puppet Theatre Box Office.  Read a review below…

“Hugely entertaining! The production has been cleverly devised as a pantomime within a play, with many humorous moments and funny one-liners galore! The young cast really rose to the occasion and there were some excellent individual performances, though it would be unfair to single any out as the whole cast excelled themselves. I would thoroughly recommend this as an evening of good fun for all the family.” Audience member at first evening performance
