Parents, pupils and beaks were treated to two hours of exceptional entertainment in the annual end of Michaelmas term Drama and Music Showcase.
The evening began with the orchestra playing a Christmas adaptation of Vangelis’s Chariots of Fire followed by an excerpt from Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest. These contrasting but beautifully prepared and presented works set the tone for the first half, which was brought to an end by an immensely powerful IB Theatre pupil performance and an a capella version of Coldplay’s Fix You by the Common Room close harmony group.
Arthur Miller’s The Crucible opened the second half which also contained the Chamber Choir, the Baroque ensemble, a contemporary dance group and a thirty minute pupil-written pantomime, which provided the opportunity for the ubiquitous Doctor T to make a cameo appearance. Fittingly, the evening was concluded with the College Choir singing traditional English carols.
Congratulations to all performers, directors and, in particular, to Miss Cowley and Mr Watkins for a wonderful evening’s entertainment.
