The school presents a 'whole school' musical or play each year which is performed in the spring term.
All students whether studying Drama and Theatre Studies or not are able to audition for a part. Students may also participate by being part of the various support teams, ie set design, costume team, backstage crew, or the tech team which includes lighting, sound and video.
The latest production, Matilda Jr, received many wonderful plaudits, including:
"Was a fantastic show. Well done to all those involved"
"huge congrats to all of the students. We were extremely impressed by the show - in particular Matilda and Miss Trunchbull. I would also like to point out the fantastic dancing by the boy in the red top during the contemporary number - as I danced for many years I was very impressed by his super clean triple pirouettes."
We were delighted to have Chis and Sid alumnus Matthew Rowland visit to enjoy Matilda, Matthew is currently playing Mr Wormwood in the RSC’s Matilda the Musical, International Tour.
The previous production was Beauty and the Beast, the Musical, which also received excellent reviews:
