The curtain has come down on the school’s brilliant production of Godspell – and we’ve got lots of photos and reviews from the show.
After months of rehearsals, a fantastic main cast backed by a chorus of nearly 60 pupils and a huge backstage team helped director Mrs Alison Moffatt put on another unforgettable production:
It was important to me that the show focused on community and what connects us as human beings, not only in terms of what the audience sees but to develop it in a real sense for the cast and crew. This has truly been realised through our months working together.
Featuring a sparkling score by Grammy and Academy award-winning composer Stephen Schwartz, Godspell tells the timeless tale of friendship, loyalty and love that has touched theatregoers all over the world.
A full cast and crew list is available in the programme.
We asked the audience for their comments after the show via Twitter and our Facebook page, and their reviews were overwhelmingly positive!

I came to your performance of Godspell last night.
Having experienced your beautiful and fresh production, I felt privileged to have been there.
The story was beautifully told and performed; I just want to know when you start your “run” in the West End.
Please thank everyone for being on stage looking as if they were living the dream! The panache and verve was such a delight to be amongst.
We were at the Royal Exchange Theatre this week, and all your Godspell performers could have slipped into a Royal Exchange production with ease.
Thank you all so much.
Well Done to all the cast and crew a remarkable production
