Middle School Production: The Wizard of Oz

Lucton Middle School transported audiences to Munchkin Land in a tremendous production of 'The Wizard of Oz'.

With a cast and crew of over 70 children aged 10 to 13, this was a performance of epic proportions. Using RSC's version of the L. Frank Baum book and Oscar winning movie, Lucton students performed all the much-loved songs, favourite characters and iconic moments in two evening performances and a matinee performance for local primary schools.

Head of Drama, Miss Francis praised her young performers, saying "It's a massive production to undertake, with lots of elaborate pieces to recreate, like trying to find a way to make the flying monkeys actually fly, but the cast and crew took it in their stride. The music, singing and acting were excellent and as usual, costumes, sets and make-up were of a very high standard so many thanks to the students who assisted in everything from make-up and costume, to lighting and stage management."

Senior School Production: Twelfth Night

Twelfth Night was the Senior School production this year and whilst it was beset with cast injuries and illness, the show still went on!

What a treat it was - from the 1940s music, which created the atmosphere for the play during the scene changes, to the powerful acting from a number of the performers.

We did enjoy Callum Berry's portrayal of Malvolio, in his yellow stockings and cross gartered, but all the performers whether in a small cameo role or in a main part, were on great form and we thank them all for their hard work and their undoubted talent.

Huge congratulations to the cast, the stage and technical crew and of course our wonderful directors, Mrs Waters and Mrs Sharman. Stupendous!

Senior School Production: Hi-de-Hi

Lucton Senior School revived the classic 80s sitcom 'Hi-de-Hi' for their annual stage show.

Set in the fictional seaside holiday camp, Maplins, this adaption follows the announcement that the camp's founder, Joe Maplin is setting up a camp in the Bahamas and the annual 'Miss Bluecoat' competition will decide who is to work there.

Performed in front of three packed houses, the show provided a feast of songs from the fifties, beautifully choreographed dance routines and superbly funny acting performances.

"Hi-de-Hi has a wealth of comedic, charming and likeable characters which our pupils warmed to immediately" said Head of Drama, Kate Francis, "it's been tremendous fun to work on. Everyone involved in this production has brought endless enthusiasm and energy."

Gill Thorne, Headmistress at Lucton School, said "The whole performance was wonderful. Lucton School has some very talented staff and pupils - I'm very proud of them all. Last year it was Dickens and next year it is going to be Shakespeare. The contrast with this year's effervescent production couldn't be greater and it emphasises to me, just how versatile the students are."
