Taking the Stage

14th February 20

Pupils from across the Senior School performed to a packed ‘standing-room only’ house last Friday evening in what was the biggest ‘Taking the Stage’ yet.

Pupils taking their Trinity College exams were able to use the event as a dress rehearsal and this allowed the audience to see Charley Kirby and Charlotte Beck both show off their acting and musical theatre skills, whilst Libby Baker and Niamh Ward both performed speeches from their imminent acting exams.

The rest of the bill was made up of magic and circus-skills (Miles Whittaker), pianists (Tom Williamson and James Hall), a cellist (Jasper Pike), singers (Sophie Fyson, Ellie Dix and Mrs Missin’s Rock Choir), guitar/singers (Callum Duncan and Natasha Richardson), comedic sketch performers (Tajveer Bisla and Ethan Croker) and an acapella sign language rendition of Cyndi Lauper’s ‘True Colours’, performed by Sarah Norman.

The informal ‘open-mic’ atmosphere was enjoyed by all and we look forward to the next evening that will allow the talented pupils of WGS to shine.

Thanks must go to Mrs Missin, Mrs Scoles and Mrs Larkin for their never-ending support for the pupils.
