High School Musical success!

Posted In Creative, Drama

The cast and production team performed a first class show last week with the Assembly Hall transformed into a Californian High School as Bethany staged High School Musical over three nights, 1-3 February.

The cast delivered an energised and confident performance enabling the audiences to see the dance training, singing lessons and acting tuition come together. The evenings were very well supported with parents, staff, Governors and friends watching as the story of Gabriella (Natalie Whyte) and Troy Bolton (James Clarke) unfolded before them with huge dance numbers including “We’re All In This Together” and “The Wild Cats Cheer”.

Director of Performing Arts, Alex Bolton, said: “I am so proud of the cast, who worked tirelessly to ensure they delivered the best production yet. Thanks are due to our specialist team of teachers who are dedicated to nurturing the very best of creativity from our young people; we are all incredibly proud of their achievement.”

The production was a great example of how Bethany School continues to bring all Year Groups together, with some cast members as young as eleven performing alongside Head of School Sean Evelegh (playing hapless thespian Ryan), in Year 13. Congratulations to everyone involved and we look forward to Bethany’s Got Talent and Junior Production in June!
