We can’t believe it’s that time of year again already, but we’re delighted to announce that rehearsals have now kicked off for our annual stage show - and can finally reveal that our next production will be…(drum rol!l)…OUR HOUSE.
Featuring a host of classic hits from Ska band Madness - such as Our House, Baggy Trousers and My Girl – the award-winning musical has proved to be a huge hit with audiences across the UK.
With the backdrop of the famous musical collection of Madness, the show explores the themes of love, family values, responsibility and growing up.
Sharon Bishop, Head of Performance, said: “We thought long and hard about what our next production should be and are delighted to have been granted the licence for Our House.
“Our production of Hairspray earlier this year was a phenomenal success so we knew we had to choose another special musical for our next performance. Our House ticks all the boxes - as well as a moving storyline, which shows how the split-second decision of a 16-year-old can alter the course of his life, it also features a whole host of Madness classics that are guaranteed to go down a storm.
“We have so much talent at Highfields and there’s still time for more students to sign up to take part in the production. It’s always a great experience putting on our shows and we can’t wait to get started on staging another spectacular school production.”
Rehearsals will take place every Thursday in The Lyceum from 3.15pm.
