On Thursday 21 and Friday 22 June, Years 4-6 performed their brilliant drama production, ‘The Little Mermaid’, in the Judi Dench Theatre at Abbot’s Hill School.
The musical followed the wonderful story of Ariel, a mermaid princess who dreams of becoming human. On one of Ariel’s visits to the ocean’s surface, which are forbidden by her father, King Triton, she falls for a human prince. Determined to be with her new love, Ariel makes a dangerous deal with the sea witch Ursula to become human for three days.
All of the girls embraced their character roles, transporting the audiences under the sea! Everybody was mesmerised by the brilliant acting, singing, dancing and music.
Teamwork is at the heart of every Abbot’s Hill production, with the teachers of the Performing & Creative Arts Department, all of the pupils in Years 4, 5 and 6 and the Prep School staff working collaboratively.
Mrs Hollie Sparrow, Head of Drama, says “it has been a pleasure to direct the fantastic pupils at Abbot’s Hill. They have put their hearts and souls into the performances, and I am so proud of them!”
Well done to all of the girls who took part and a big thank you to all of the staff who worked incredibly hard to make the show a great success.
