The much-anticipated Newquay Tretherras production of the all-time favourite musical classic Oliver! is soon to hit the stage.
The whole school show looks to be a phenomenal high-energy production involving over 60 students, from Year7 to 13 in acting, singing and dancing performances, not forgetting the dedicated student tech team who have been building sets and coordinating lights and sounds.
The Tretherras performance features all the well-loved songs from the West end classic, that include “Food, Glorious food”, “Where is love”, “Consider Yourself” and “I’ll do Anything”.
Lead performances from Rachel Millington as Nacy, Leon Norfolk as Fagin, Joseph Wheeler as Bill Sykes and Dylan Hockins as Oliver bring the much-loved characters emotively to life. The so performances from local primary pupils as the orphans in the workhouses is one to watch out for.
This production follows on from successful previous Newquay Tretherras musical productions of “Schools Will Rock You” and “High School Musical”.
Mrs Cate Halford who has been directing the Tretherras production commented, “Rehearsals began back in June and we have been working unbelievably hard to bring it all together and make such a wonderful show. It has been a real privilege to work with all the students, who have been incredibly professional and dedicated. The cast have been simply wonderful; the tech team have been marvellous and certainly made this production part of the family.”
The production runs for 4 nights 17th, 18th, 19th & 20th of October and it comes highly recommended. Tickets are available from the school main reception so take the opportunity to see it in the Junior Hall of Newquay Tretherras as it is transformed into a Dickensian Workhouse and consider yourself well in.
