We are delighted to announce Highfields’ next production will be musical comedy, The Addams Family, followed by feel-good family favourite, Beauty and the Beast - with auditions now lined up for the school’s budding stage stars.
The Addams Family, which depicts a ghoulish American family with an affinity for all things macabre, will be staged from November 6th-8th and feature students from Years 10-13.
Auditions for the production will take place from 3.30pm on Thursday May 16th, in Room 105.
Beauty and the Beast will be staged from February 26th-28th 2020 with students from Years 7-9.
Auditions for that spectacular will be announced in due course.
Ms S Bishop, Highfields’ Head of Extra Curricular Performance, said: “We’ve already secured the licenses to perform the shows, which are both amazing productions.
“Putting together our shows takes a lot of work over a number of weeks, but the process is always such great fun and a wonderful experience for our students.
“Highfields’ productions are open to all students and we welcome everyone to take part, whether they have had previous experience of performing or none at all.
“Anyone who would like to audition for a principal part in The Addams Family should come along on May 16th, with rehearsals starting soon after that. We can’t wait to get up and running on our next show!”
Summer Schools will also be held for both casts, which will run during the first week of the holidays, from July 22nd-26th.
The Summer School, which will take place from 10am-3pm every day, promises to be a fun packed week during which students will rehearse for the upcoming shows whilst also making some props and costumes for both productions.
