Shrek, Rupert Walker-Magee

Shrek was a sold out success - thank you to all involved.

Shrek-tastic success!

The Middle School Musical was held over the past weekend. From the costumes to the choreography, the singing to the makeup, our younger Gentlemen ‘did themselves proud’! Both shows were sold out within hours and so the boys played to a full house each night.

A successful show like this does not happen without the dedication of a great team. Thank you to all the parents and staff who played a vital role in ensuring the talent of our future musicals will have a great experience to draw from.
