  • Les Miserables

    Published 30/06/16

    In the school’s most ambitious production yet, Paris of the 1800s came to Hill House in great style. Encouraged by a video message from the West End show, a wonderful ensemble cast which ranged from Sixth Formers to children as young as Year 3 charmed and thrilled packed houses with a consummate performance. Oliver Barker and Joe Warren made superb adversaries as Valjean and Javert, while Danielle Conlon, Lucy Blott and Beatrice Barker were excellent in the leading female roles. Conor O’Hara signed off his remarkable Hill House performing career with a barnstorming ‘Master of the House’. From the audience, cheers, tears and standing ovations all round!

  • Alice in Wonderland

    Published 30/06/16

    This term the Key Stage One pupils ably assisted by the Reception children showcased 
    their talents in their own adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. 

    Our rehearsals started back in the Lent term and from the very start pupils have 
    taken pride in the choreography, developing scenes and choosing music.

    We began by tumbling down the rabbit hole with Alice into the magical world of Wonderland 
    and met some well-known characters including the Mad Hatter, Cheshire Cat, Queen of Hearts 
    and the White Rabbit.

    The standard this year, was once again astounding, with all the pupils showing significant 
    progress in their self-confidence, creative skills and ability to work thoughtfully alongside others.

    The result was a truly magical production, of which every single pupil was an integral part.

    West Side Story

    Senior School pupils have been dazzling packed houses with their production of ‘West Side Story’. Head of Drama Damian Bell is delighted with the cast’s work, saying ‘the very challenging score has brought out the very best in the children; with its combination of comedy, tragedy, dance and song, this show is one of the hardest we have been able to do’. With hit numbers including ‘America’, ‘Tonight’ and ‘I Feel Pretty’, the amazing performances by a supremely talented ensemble have left audiences entertained, thrilled and emotionally drained.

  • A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.

    Published 15/10/15

    During the first half of the Michaelmas term at Hill House School pupils from Year 4 to Year 6 impressed their parents and teachers by confidently performing ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.
    Their performances were imaginative and humorous. Each character was clearly defined and it was clear that the cast, whether a main role or part of the ensemble, had put time and effort into fine tuning their performance to create a play that enabled all the actors to shine.
    Finishing on a song, as they would have done in Shakespeare's globe, was a beautifully light-hearted way to round off the action.
