A huge thanks to all who were involved in staging or attended this year’s superb senior Drama production. The standard seems to get higher and higher each year!
One highly impressed critic wrote on social media:
‘A hilarious night at James Gillespie's High School enjoying this year's senior drama, the breakneck-farce 'Boeing Boeing,' translated into English in 1962 and said to be the most performed French play in the world. It’s the Sixties and suave bachelor Bernard couldn't be happier: a flat in Paris and three gorgeous air-hostesses all engaged to him without knowing about each other. But Bernard’s perfect life gets bumpy when his Irish pal Robert comes to stay and a new and speedier Boeing jet throws off all of his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in town simultaneously, timid Robert is forgetting which fibs to tell to whom, and catastrophe looms... brilliant performances by Robert Davis, Maddie Cassidy, Jack Richardson, Michael Barker, Stella Clancy and Lori Stott, in a show entirely produced, directed and staged by school students’
Special thanks to to Malcom Hardie and Zee Sulleyman whose leadership from behind the scenes continues to ensure that our seniors’ talents are recognised, nurtured and celebrated.
Sad to think that this is the last year in High School for Maddie, Jack, Michael and Stella but I’m sure we’ll hear more of their acting talents in the future.
