Oliver! Sell-out Performances at Harrogate Ladies’ College
Pupils from Harrogate Ladies’ College Drama and Music departments collaborated recently for the School Production of Oliver!
Each year, Harrogate Ladies’ College stages a theatrical production of a play, drama or musical which features a cast and orchestra of girls from Year 7 to Sixth Form.
Michael Cook, Head of Drama at Harrogate Ladies’ College said, “School productions are a fantastic way for pupils to gain experience of performing in front of a live audience, which helps to build confidence, and as well as learning about the performing arts. There are also many opportunities to learn about what goes on behind the scenes of a theatre production including set design and decoration, choreography, lighting and sound as well as costume design.”
The all-female cast performed two sell-out evening shows for parents and guests as well as a special matinee performance for local Prep and Primary schools.
Principal of Harrogate Ladies’ College, Mrs Sylvia Brett said, “The girls gave a truly amazing performance and the whole cast should be really proud of themselves. Their energy and passion really shone and the audience’s appreciation was well deserved.
“Special thanks must also go to all of our exceptional teaching staff who put so much effort into the rehearsals and for the superb costumes!”
