This year’s Senior Joint Production of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s musical Into The Woods impressed audiences across all three nights of its run.

Pupils in Years 10 to 13 transported their audiences into the world of fairytale as the story wove together the familiar stories of Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel. Their compelling performances explored the consequences of the characters’ actions and the price of saying ‘I wish’, skilfully blending together humour, pathos and thought-provoking themes.

Beautiful renditions of the musical’s songs added to the magic, each one accompanied by live music conducted backstage by Girls’ Division Director of Music Mrs Price.

Interval refreshments, including a selection of fresh home-made cakes, were provided by the Girls’ Division and Boys’ Division Parents’ Associations. They asked for donations in exchange for drinks and sweet treats and raised over £300, which will support the renovation of the Girls’ Division Theatre and the Boys’ Division annual Wish List.
