Kingshott pupils rock the School
‘We Will Rock You’ Comes to Kingshott
Kingshott School enjoyed their school production of ‘We Will Rock You’ on Thursday and Friday evening. Over 200 parents attended the events, which were staged in the School Hall to a packed audience.
The school cast of Year 7 to Year 8 children have been rehearsing for months to make the performances a resounding success.
The musical follows the success of many productions at Kingshott but is the first for Drama Teacher Mrs Claire Adams.
Mrs Adams said “We had a great team working on this musical, from the cast through costume design, our art teacher and students creating the staging, and our own pupils in charge of the lighting and sound – all of whom were brilliant”.
Set in the year 2050, ‘We Will Rock You’ is based on the songs of Queen. The musical tells the story of a group of Bohemians who struggle to restore the free exchange of thought, fashion and live music in a distant future, where everyone dresses, thinks and does the same. Musical instruments and composers are forbidden and rock music is all but unknown.
Talented Year 8 student Tom Scott plays Galileo with Ella Blackmore as Scaramouche and their performances were outstanding. Other notable performances were from Asisa Kadiri as Killer Queen and Sam Reay-Jones as Khashoggi. Published: December 7 2015
