Animal Farm production
Students are inviting their peers, friends, family and the local community to attend the school production of George Orwell's Animal Farm.
As one of Orwell's most loved tales, it's a dark and foreboding allegorical story that explores the flaws of communism and its effects on a small community through the lives of animals that live on Mr Jones' Manor Farm. Our performing arts department has updated the production and brought it into the 21st century by using high tech projections and steel platforms.
Performances take place across three evenings on Tuesday 13th, Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th February. The cast includes more than 40 students from Year 7 through to Year 10, with additional pupils taking on backstage roles such as stage management, developing lighting plans, and creating stage and make-up designs.
Mark Pollard, Headteacher, commented, "Our performing arts department deliberately chose Animal Farm as it's a total contrast to many of our previous productions, which have included Hairspray, Beauty and the Beast, and We Will Rock You.
"The subjects highlighted in the story have really tested our students and all give fantastic performances. Our full-scale productions are always extremely popular and our students are really looking forward to performing in front of friends, family and members of the local community."
Animal Farm performances start at 7pm and tickets are priced at £5 for adults and £3 for students. Concessions are available to purchase from the school finance office in the main reception. Tickets are limited and may not be available on the door on the night of a performance.
