Wicked UK Competition Winners
In November the music department entered a competition to win tickets to go and see the multi-award winning musical 'Wicked', the untold story of the witches of Oz. In the final week of the term before Christmas, I received an email telling us that we'd won!
On Wednesday January 11th, 46 students and 4 staff travelled to London to experience this incredible musical at the Victoria Apollo Theatre.
At the end of the performance we all stayed in the auditorium and met the musical director, as well as meeting three members of the cast;
Oliver Savile – who played Fiyero
Idriss Kargbo – who played Boq
Mark Curry – who played the Wizard
Our students had a chance to ask them questions – our students were amazing and asked some fantastic questions!
All our students were fantastic ambassadors for the school throughout the day. A member of the audience sitting by our students spoke to me as they were leaving the theatre and said: 'Your students were fantastic and a credit to the school'.
Some of our students and I were interviewed by Wicked UK and a film of the interviews has just been launched on their social media channels and is due to be put on the education section of the Wicked UK website.
