Musical showcases in spotlight at Summer School

Talented young performers gave up some of their summer break to rehearse for the school’s two upcoming musical productions.

Dozens of students preparing to stage The Addams Family and Beauty And The Beast spent a week of their holiday at a performance Summer School.


As part of their action-packed week, they continued to learn lines, perfect show-stopping musical numbers and make props.

Rehearsals for The Addams Family have been ongoing since Easter, with cast members wowing live audiences with teaser performances of some of the show’s hit songs during the school’s recent Summer Showcase and Young Wolf Film Awards.

The show will be staged by students from Years 10 to 13 from November 5th-8th.

Budding performers from Years 7-9 will then stage the magical musical, Beauty And The Beast, between February 26th and 28th 2020.


Rehearsals for the production kicked off just ahead of the summer break.

Ms S Bishop, Highfields’ Head of Extra Curricular Performance, said: “Our musical productions are always a huge success, and that is down to the dedication of all of the students involved.

“Whilst the school broke up for summer, our talented performers gave up the first week of their holidays to continue working on our upcoming shows.

“They worked incredibly hard throughout the week, but also had lots of fun rehearsing and creating props.

“Both productions are firm family favourites and we are excited to be bringing them to life in spectacular Highfields fashion.”
