Uplifting Musical Theatre Showcase Performance at Ashfield

Uplifting Musical Theatre Showcase Performance at Ashfield

 

This week would have marked the 5th year of Ashfield's Musical Theatre Showcase. Previous years have seen our students perform musical numbers from classics such as Phantom of the Opera and Miss Saigon, right up to current musicals such as Hamilton and Everybody's Talking About Jamie. Each year, the showcase welcomes students from Key Stage 3 Drama and Dance Club, the School Show ensemble, Ashfield Ensemble Choir, Junior Band and those who are just passionate about Musical Theatre. The show also serves an important purpose, as it is an exam for the BTEC Musical Theatre students.

As the saying goes, 'The Show Must Go On', and our Year 13 and 12 BTEC students performed an amazing extract from The Wizard of Oz to a socially distanced audience of staff at Christmas. In such strange and uncertain times, the students brought hope, laughter, and pure enjoyment as they performed a wonderful rendition of a well-loved musical. We hope you enjoy this small clip, and we hope to see you all soon!
