Performing Arts Evening

performing_arts_evening1On Thursday 28th April the Performing Arts Faculty held their annual ‘Evening of Entertainment’ in the school hall. The Performing Arts faculty comprises Music, Drama and PE and there where examples on show from all three departments. The night opened with 4 songs from the Tabor Singers, a newly formed group this year who have gone from strength to the strength under the tutelage of Mrs Lesslie. This was followed by a range of acts from the Drama department. The diversity on show was greatly appreciated by the audience, with examples of physical theatre, comedy and pieces inspired by poetry and prose. The Year 10 GCSE drama piece was particularly well received.

Our dancers were next on stage, performing in a range of solos, duets and groups performances. The acts on show were either a product of the GCSE dance course or choreographed by the students themselves. The quality on show made difficult, technical routines look graceful and natural and were testament to the hours of hard work behind the scenes. Following dance our gymnast took to the stage; gymnastics has flourished recently with the after school club very popular and we have performed well in recent County competitions. The gymnasts showed grace and pose as well as strength and agility and impressed the visitors with their manoeuvres.

The evening ended with a musical session which included some outstanding performances and demonstrated the quality of singing and instrumentation within the Music Department. Year 11 Lia’s rendition of an Adele song and the closing act of Bohemian Rhapsody (with Year 10’s Josh in the role of Freddie Mercury) were particular highlights.

At the end of the evening the feedback was very positive from guests and the performers took their applause on a high. Thanks must go to all involved, with particular mention to
