After ten weeks of rehearsal, the cast of Matilda Jr took to the stage on the 6th and 7th July.
Our first school production post-covid, the cast performed to a sell-out audience on both nights and did a truly fabulous job! Eve, Koneil, and Shanay gave standout performances as Matilda, Agatha Trunchball and Miss Honey with some real showstopping musical moments. The Wormwoods (Isaac and Amirah) brought lots of laughs with their stellar comic timing and the entire cast brought so much joy with their musical numbers! There was a real sense of enjoyment on the faces of those onstage and in the audience and we look forward to the next show!
The Head Teacher, Mr Simms, along with many other staff, parents/carers, governors and friends, thoroughly enjoyed the show. He said “The students gave brilliant performances in the lead roles and in the chorus, and they managed to switch between the tragedy and comedy of the story with an ease that made for a marvellous evening’s entertainment. I am so proud to be their Head Teacher. Of course, the students are the stars of the show (and this includes Sam in Y8 who was supporting back-stage) but this would not have been possible without the hard work of Mrs Bonfante, Mrs Crawford, Ms King, Mr Crosby and especially Mrs Mathews who directed the whole performance. A big THANK YOU to all concerned for a wonderful show”.
