After playing to four full houses, the school’s production of Oliver! closed on Saturday night to the admiration of its audiences.
The musical brought together nearly 200 pupils from across the school and each performance proved that the months of rehearsals and preparation hadn’t gone to waste.
Fans of the show were quick to praise it by sending us 140-character reviews to @stockportgs on Twitter. In addition to the reviews received on opening night, the following tweets echoed the thoughts of Thursday, Friday and Saturday’s audiences:
Production of Oliver tonight was a credit to staff and pupils alike. The professionalism and production values were breathtaking.
Fantastic performance of Oliver! last night. Cast, crew and orchestra take a bow! Unfair to single anyone out – all brilliant!
Fantastic show tonight. Excellent cast but special mention to Fagin and Nancy who were fantastic. Congratulations to all involved.
Absolutely brilliant performance this evening of Oliver! at Stockport Grammar School. The audience applause was so richly deserved by everyone involved!
The final performance of Oliver! was absolutely fantastic, brilliant, awesome. Well done to everyone involved.
A FANTASTIC performance on Saturday. Well done to everyone who worked to put on this amazing production!
I know I was in it, but I’m ecstatic about how it turned out. We all came out and put on a hilarious, wonderful, glorious show!
All the cast of Oliver! were incredible. The Artful Dodger stole the show! Should all be so proud. Impressed.
The production formed part of our programme of special events to mark the 525th anniversary of Stockport Grammar School’s foundation. February’s gala concert at the Royal Northern College of Music marked the start of the year’s events which will culminate in the official opening of the new Woodsmoor building.
Local businesses ProFinance, Hyde Management Services and Computer England joined us at sponsored receptions at three of the performances to help us celebrate this anniversary and support the school’s bursary fund.
