What an exhausting yet utterly wonderful and exciting week we have had in Performing Arts! The cast and crew for Elf have worked incredibly hard and produced a fabulous show which audiences have really loved. We really appreciate everyone who has come along to watch the show, your time and support means so much to us. It has been really lovely to welcome back so many past pupils who have also come along to support the show.
The production has been a year in the making. On the very last night of Aladdin last year, we announced to the cast that the 2018 production would be Elf the Musical. This was received with squeals of excitement and the enthusiasm for the show has kept on growing. The pupils involved in the cast and crew have been incredibly committed and have worked for months learning lines, perfecting dances, learning how to programme lights, making props etc. The whole production has really been driven by the pupils and for that, Mrs Taylor and Miss Backhouse are eternally grateful. There are also a whole host of staff who have contributed to making the show come to life.
