Audiences were certainly left wanting more as Hill House School pupils put on a rousing performance of the West End hit, Oliver!
The students had a Dickens of a good time performing in this well-known musical based on an orphan boy living in Victorian London, with each sell out performance getting a standing ovation from the crowd.
Pupils from years three to nine have worked hard over the last two terms to perfect the show and, despite all the nerves, delivered three first-class performances.
The energy never dropped, ‘Oom Pah Pah’ had the audiences clapping along while Lucy Blott’s remarkable rendition of ‘As Long as He Needs Me’ moved some to tears.
Mrs Lee, the driving force behind the Hill House School productions, said, “The children have put in so much hard work over this year and I am incredibly proud of them. You can really see that the younger pupils have been inspired by the older ones to really put in their all and the result has been fantastic. The production of the show was incredible and the live orchestra, along with the lights and sound, really brought everything together.”
