Gang­sters run riot at school

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

Stu­dents from across the year groups were in­volved in the well­known pro­duc­tion ear­lier this month, which tells the story of 1930s gang­sters but with a cast made up en­tirely of chil­dren.

Leader of drama An­drew Cr­effield said: “I was im­mensely proud see­ing pupils not only per­form to a high stan­dard but to have en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence and work­ing along­side each other to put on this pro­fes­sional pro­duc­tion.”

Year eight pupil Imo­gen Bur­rowes said: “It was all a lot of hard work but it was all worth it.

“We had make up and set de­sign by other pupils in our school. The make up looked great on all the dancers, Tal­lu­lah and gang­sters.

“The set de­signs were beau­ti­ful and very de­tailed, also cre­ated by stu­dents. We had lots of fun with the splurge guns. All the lines were learnt rather quickly by the cast which helped the process.

“My high­light was show­cas­ing our work to the pri­mary schools as they all seemed to en­joy it.

“I loved work­ing on Bugsy and I hope there will be more pro­duc­tions that I can get in­volved in this year as I am sure they will be just as great.”
