Tear-Jerking Performances at Highgate
ON MARCH 2ND JUNIOR SCHOOL PUPILS PERFORMED PIECES FROM LION KING, WICKED AND THE TEMPEST
Year 5 put a spectacular production on in the Junior School Hall on March 2nd 2017. The evening combined work the pupils had been doing on The Tempest in drama lessons as well as songs they had been learning in music. All the form classes had their own scene from The Tempest which highlighted the strong acting talent and creative talents of Year 5. The whole of year sang an impressive choreographed version of Be Prepared from ‘The Lion King’ and the show culminated in a very moving rendition of Changed for Good from the musical ‘Wicked’, which even had some of the audience in tears. There was also a selection of solo songs including: Trade Winds; One Hand, One Heart and O Mistress Mine which all helped to bring the emotional content of Shakespeare’s writing to life through words and music.
It was a very impressive evening which showcased the wide ranging talents of the entire year group. Well done on a great performance! EP
