Our students are rehearsing hard for our Musical Showcase which will go online in the summer. Bea from Year 12 will be performing, and she took some time out from rehearsals to tell us about it.
The show experience, this year has been nothing we have experienced before. Because of Covid-19, we can no longer share the stage with people from different year group bubbles, nor can we perform in front of live audiences – but it has still been very exciting for new reasons.
The plan is for it to be filmed in June and July ready for a triumphant celebration at the end of the year, when you’ll see numbers from musicals including Six, The Lion King, Hamilton, Heathers, Waitress, Funny Girl and many more!
More people than ever have had the opportunity to have leading roles, and showcase their talents. It has allowed us to experience an entirely new range of shows that we wouldn’t necessarily have before. It also means that, as the final show is being livestreamed, not only are we are able to watch our performances (along with the work that the other year groups have produced) but more of our family and friends than ever before will also be able to watch the show.
