Open Stage

Posted on Feb 04, 2016

Students took to the ‘Open Stage’ at the end of January when they entertained family and friends in a variety style show.

Audiences were wowed by the vast array of talents from our students including Enya Kneeshaw (Year 10) rapping the 'Queen's Speech', singing, dancing, gymnastics and an amazing magic trick presented by Elliot Risely (Year 9).  A short play ‘Sparkle Shark’ was enacted by students who are part of a drama club organised by Year 10 Chloe King.  Students in the Blue Weasel Choir sang “Trail of the Lonesome Pine” and “Good Morning Baltimore” from Hairspray. 

Comperes on the evenings were Fiona Mansell from Year 9 and Paul Bowler from Year 11.

Elizabeth Vassallo Head of Drama said, “I am so proud of the amount of talent our students have, and Kingsmead's Open Stage gives them the opportunity to show off what they can do with skills gained in and outside of school.  I was very impressed with the variety of acts and the commitment and enthusiasm the students showed for the event.”

Naomi Honour Head of Music said “I very much look forward to working with these creative students for the next school production taking place in the summer term.”
