Anyone who has seen a “Lush production” knew that the Centenary musical production of Beauty and the Beast would be a spectacle to behold …..it didn’t disappoint. 70 pupils in years 7 & 8 have been rehearsing for the show since before Christmas and their hard work shone through during 3 fantastic performances in which they sang and danced to rapturous applause and standing ovations. With such stunning costumes, a professional set and a live band, you had to pinch yourself to remember that we were sitting in a prep school theatre watching 11,12 and 13 year olds perform.
One theatre goer wrote to say “I was blown away. The show was funny, full of talent, it was brimming with vitality and the kids were just beaming with raw joy and delight at being part of something so creative. It had an amazing energy to it. I feel really lucky to have watched that; sometimes as adults we forget how joyful it can be to take part in things.”
Many congratulations to Mr Lush and the cast for pulling off yet another memorable Brambletye production.
