Be pre­pared for a thor­oughly first-rate show

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - ON SHOW -

SCHOOLS will gather to­gether to stage an am­bi­tious mod­ern pro­duc­tion.

Stu­dents from Pipers Cor­ner School in Great King­shill, The Royal Gram­mar School and Claires Court School will per­form Thor­oughly Mod­ern Mil­lie.

The story cen­tres on a naive young woman who finds her­self in the midst of a se­ries of mad­cap ad­ven­tures when she sets her sights on mar­ry­ing her wealthy boss. Julie An­drews starred in the 1967 big screen ver­sion of the hit play.

Pipers Cor­ner School spokes­woman Re­becca Con­roy said: “The per­for­mances will be staged on a pur­pose-built set in the school’s sports hall and is the most am­bi­tious mu­si­cal pro­duc­tion ever em­barked on at Pipers Cor­ner. The idea be­hind it is to showcase the tal­ent in abun­dance at the school and give a taste of what is to come once the new the­atre is in op­er­a­tion in Septem­ber 2016.”

Head­mistress He­len Ness-Gif­ford said: “The whole school is very much look­ing for­ward to per­for­mance week. What I have seen in re­hearsals has been hugely im­pres­sive and we are look­ing for­ward to shar­ing some fan­tas­tic evenings of en­ter­tain­ment with the au­di­ences. With the the­atre project on the hori­zon, en­thu­si­asm for the show has been ex­tremely high and all the girls, along with their col­leagues from The Royal Gram­mar School and Claires Court, are ex­cited to demon­strate what can be achieved with hard work and ded­i­ca­tion.”

Per­for­mances are tonight, to­mor­row and Satur­day at Pipers Cor­ner School at 7.30pm. There is also a mati­nee per­for­mance on Satur­day at 2.30pm.

For tick­ets, call the school of­fice on 01494 718 255.
