Pupils lit up the stage with their incredible performances in our summer production, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, a romantic comedy that sees seven empowered frontier women take charge of their destinies, and their men, in 1850s Oregon.
As a whole school production, the cast ranged from 7 to 15 years old. And, with 14 main parts, lots of children embraced their chance to shine, wowing audiences with their singing, acting and dancing skills.
The cast, comprising of over 70 children, took inspiration from the Croft House Theatre Company who had very kindly invited our young pupils to watch their production of ‘Seven Brides’ at the Sheffield Lyceum Theatre in March. Repaying the favour, the Croft House cast came to see the Hill House production that ran for three sold out nights and were amazed by the level of talent on display.
Production coordinator, Mrs Lee, said, “We knew that ‘Seven Brides’ would be ambitious as the pupils had to take on complicated dance routines, American accents and intricate musical arrangements but they have worked really hard since Christmas to produce a truly outstanding show. I am incredibly proud of them all.”
The pupils now look forward to next years’ productions – ‘Twelfth Night’ for the Seniors and ‘Mary Poppins’ for the Juniors.
