Sensational Sister Act!
This year’s sell-out production saw the hall transformed into a 1970’s convent, as pupils performed the hit musical, Sister Act.
Based on the iconic movie, the musical is a sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, sisterhood and music. It tells the hilarious story of a disco diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder and is placed into witness protection… in a convent! Disguised as a nun she helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.
Mrs Haves, Head of Drama, said: "Sister Act is the perfect musical to perform at Manchester High. It’s a joyous celebration of women supporting each other, so it was no surprise that the girls embraced the plot with open arms. Over 80 girls were involved in the show and some of them would’ve given professional West End actors a run for their money.
“What a fantastic performance! The girls’ singing, dancing and acting was truly special. I’m already excited to see what’s in store for next year.”
“It takes real dedication to take part in a show and I’m constantly amazed at how our pupils manage to balance everything with their school work and other commitments. I’d like to pay special tribute to Mr Bradley, Ms Burley, Miss Robinson, Miss Ward and Mr Haves, who ensured the girls put on an unforgettable show!”
Mrs Hewitt echoed Mrs Haves' comments: "What a triumph, I imagine the audience were whistling the songs all the way home. Congratulations to our incredibly talented pupils for another fantastic production. Credit must also go those staff who worked tirelessly to give our pupils this fantastic opportunity; especially Mrs Haves, Ms Burley, Mr Bradley, Miss Robinson Miss Ward and Mr Haves.
