Tickets are now on sale for this year’s stage show, OUR HOUSE.
The musical features a host of classic hits from Ska band Madness - such as Our House, Baggy Trousers and My Girl - to explore the themes of love, family values, responsibility and growing up.
More than 70 students have been rehearsing after-school and at weekends since October for the production, which will be staged from February 24-27.
Sharon Bishop, Head of Performance, said: “The annual school production is one of the highlights on the school calendar and our students have once again worked incredibly hard to make sure this year’s show is a success.
“It’s always a great experience putting on our shows and we can’t wait for the curtain to rise on this year’s production!”
Tickets cost £5 (£3 concessions). They are available from Humanities LRC.
The story of Our House:
On the night of his 16th birthday, Camden lad Jay Casey makes a decision that will change his life.
Trying to impress Sarah, the girl of his dreams, Jay breaks into a building development overlooking his home on Casey Street. But things take a turn for the worse when the police turn up.
Jay's life splits into two: ‘Good Jay’ who stays to face the consequences of his actions and ‘Bad Jay’ who flees the scene and leaves Sarah to fend for herself against the pursuing officers.
Our House follows the two paths that Jay’s life could take over the next seven years following that fateful night - one that leads to a criminal record and social exclusion and one that makes him rich beyond his wildest dreams only to lose the things he cherishes most in the world - the girl, his friends and his beloved mum.
Watched over by his deceased father, whose own reckless decisions cost him his life, is there really any happy ending for Jay?
Or - if he could go back in time - would he realise that the decision to break into that building was ‘madness’ and react differently?
