Curtain up on Mary Poppins
Not long now until the curtains open for our summer show Mary Poppins.
The cast have been rehearsing hard for months, even giving up time at weekends, showing excellent commitment. But did you know just how much effort goes into putting the show together?
While the students who appear on stage are learning their lines and their songs, others are learning the steps of choreographed dances which contribute so much to the show.
There is always lots going on behind the scenes too, with props and scenery to be organised, as well as costumes. Both students and staff look after the audience as part of our front of house team, and the lighting, sound and music are all organised to ensure ‘it’s all right on the night.’
This year we have introduced a new offer for VIP guests. A special ‘lounge’ will be created on the SPA balcony where guests can enjoy complimentary snacks and drinks before the show.
Dates of the show are Monday 9th, Tuesday 10th and Thursday 12th July, at 7pm each evening.
Tickets are on sale from early June via Year 9 Year Manager Mrs Thompson. Adult tickets are £5, children £4 and family tickets £15 (any combination up to four people). VIP tickets are an extra £3 for adults and children and £25 for a family ticket.
We look forward to seeing you there.
