The charity show is definitely the highlight of the year for any sixth former. Whether they took part in the show, helped make the set, worked backstage, worked on the tech or helped run the show on the day all our sixth formers took part in one way or another.
This year the show was based upon a group of turkeys who before Christmas steal the Christmas dinner in order to save themselves. Without the Christmas dinner Father Christmas cannot deliver the presents to the children. It turns out that Heinrich the German reindeer manipulated the turkeys so that he could have a night off. Confusing? Yes. However it was highly entertaining. There were some top performances, special recognition to Peter Stockbridge who played Sheldon Cooper brilliantly! Other top performers were; James Cutts as the silent turkey and George Smith as Roxanne in Jeremy Kyle. A huge well done to all those that performed you were all brilliant.
Although rehearsals were intense and we had our ups and downs, everyone pulled together and worked as a team and made the show fantastic. Arguably our best performance and the one we enjoyed the most had to be the Tuesday evening performance which was open to the public. The crowd were ecstatic and we fed from this energy and gave everything we could.
Thank you to all those who came on the Tuesday evening and to all students who bought tickets for the charity show on the Friday. You all made it worthwhile and we raised a huge amount of money for our four chosen charities.
