PLAYBILL is a musical hit with with two sell out performances

The audience could feel the energy coming from the stage at Spalding Academy on Thursday and Friday last week when PLAYBILL was performed to two SELL OUT performances by an outstanding cast of 90 students.

It was a fantastic feeling to have live theatre back at the school and especially when it was so well supported by families and the local community with 400 people filling up the hall.

Directed by Miss Freddie Clarke and Miss Rachel France, PLAYBILL featured a showcase of the very best in acting, song and dance from the stage and screen. There was something for all ages to enjoy with scenes from Shrek, Oliver, Matilda, Blood Brothers, The Addams Family, Billy Elliot and Les Misérables plus many others.

The students and staff working behind the scenes helped ensure that there was a seamless transition from scene-to-scene and the standard of every act can only be described as ‘first class’ with captivating stage presence plus perfect choreography and delivery, which was complemented by our incredible band.

Mrs Jemma Curson, Head of School said We are incredibly proud of all our students, who took part in this year’s production of ‘PLAYBILL’. During the performances, students staff and families were beaming with joy, excitement, and pride.  It was amazing to see our students back on the stage, singing and dancing, with our live music band too. Well done to all the cast!

Miss Freddie Clarke, Head of Performing Arts said “Theatre at Spalding Academy is definitely back with a bang and what a pleasure it has been to direct PLAYBILL 2022. The cast never cease to amaze me, with over 90 students involved in the production, on and off stage and those playing in our incredible live band. I am extremely grateful to those who dedicated so much of their own time to help put together such a fabulous show. We are so lucky have such talented students at Spalding Academy and are very excited to start working on the next production. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff that supported and worked on the show, from our Music Department, technical team, chaperones and front of house volunteers – you have been amazing.”

A special thank you goes to Miss Rachel France who has been with Spalding Academy for the past six years and this was her last performance with the school. We all would to wish her the very best in her new position after all of the hard work and dedication she has given Spalding Academy.

The Performing Arts and Music departments are currently the planning for our next show and will announce more information soon.
