Over 90 pupils from across all year groups and primary pupils from our Youth Theatre group, BAYT, took part in the School’s Christmas production, Sleeping Beauty, directed by Mrs Broom and choreographed by Mrs Teasdale.
The production was a huge success, seeing two sell out performances and standing ovations. The cast and crew were all made up of Bishop Barrington pupils, with former pupils, Laura Provan, Lauren Kitching and Rachel Moore lending a helping hand with critical elements of technical support both front of house and backstage.
The production saw a first time lead role for year 8 pupil, Molly who played Aurora, alongside other pupils, including, year 11, Nathan , who played Maleficent.
The production allows our pupils to not only work in a professional theatrical environment, but also gives the perfect opportunity to gain confidence, make new friendships and build a team rapport.
A BAYT summer production is currently in discussion and will take place towards the end of the summer term.
