The Cast, Orchestra and Crew wowed the audiences in November with 3 stunning performances of Oliver! … leaving more than just a small workhouse boy asking for more!
Over 70 girls were involved in staging this musical interpretation of Charles Dickens’ classic tale of East London life – “Oliver Twist” – and what a production it was. Parents, guests and staff were treated to the full cast singing classics such as Oom-Pah-Pah, Who Will Buy and Food, Glorious Food along with the beautiful solos and duets of I’ll Do Anything and As Long As He Needs Me.
All the cast were amazing – mixing some of our more experienced Sixth Formers with younger girls from Years 8 upward. Mia Serracino-Inglott was cast as Oliver in her first major role; Beccy Page was outstanding as Nancy – a performance that would give Jody Prenger a run for her money. Hannah Adler’s Fagin was superbly supported by Georgia Stewardson’s Artful Dodger and the combination of Nicola End (Bill Sikes) and Rachel Doyle (his fearsome companion Bullseye) brought menace and fear to proceedings.
Under the musical direction of Adrian Fuller, the Orchestra were also amazing!
A DVD is in preparation – but until that arrives, here’s a sneaky clip of Food, Glorious Food recorded on Thursday 21st.
