Following several weeks of hard work it was extremely rewarding to perform to a sell-out audience on the final night of the performance of our school musical. It took a lot of dedication from everyone involved (on and off the stage) to piece together this classic musical that is currently on tour in the UK. It is rare that a Year 7 will work alongside Year 11 students, but being part of the show has meant that everyone from a range of year groups have worked together to showcase their amazing acting, singing and dancing talents.
It is worth noting our two Year 11 pupils; Connor Evans and Calum Snell, who have performed in all shows throughout their years at St Chad’s gave stellar performances as the ‘shady’ Rooster and billionaire Oliver Warbucks . Hannah Bailey in Year 10 played Annie and was supported by her peers Lily Mayers playing the part of Miss Hannigan and Ruby Thornton taking on the role of Grace Farrell. Year 7, 8 and Year 9 girls provided the cheeky, loveable qualities of the orphans, whilst Liam Fairclough and Kade MacDonald showed their versatility playing several male supporting roles. There were many other pupils involved in other acting, singing and dancing roles and it is because of their commitment and ability to remain professional at all times that ‘Annie’ was such a huge success. An audience member declared that she preferred St Chad’s version to the one seen recently at the Liverpool Empire which is a huge compliment and well deserved by all our wonderfully talented pupils. We cannot wait to see you at our next school performance.
