Show must go on
Trinity pupils and staff promised a great night out with their musical production of Back to the 80s.
It was a hit, following the success of their rendition of Queen’s musical We Will Rock You and their trip back to the 1960s in Hairspray.
Throughtout a selection of shows and concerts, Trinity High School’s performing arts department has shone and a strong bond has been created between pupils and staff alike.
Not only have they tackled musicals, but smaller concerts too where pupils (and the occasional staff member), have shown off their talents in a variety of ways from solos to percussion ensembles.
To many pupils, these are not just shows to perform in. They are confidence and self-esteem boosters; a way of building friendships.
With good luck messages from Brian May himself, it is hardly a wonder why pupils are so motivated to take part both on and off stage.
And it’s not just on-stage where the interest as been, as there is a huge team of pupils interested in sound engineering and lighting who all make the shows come together.
Melissa Salvetta, S5, described her experience: “Taking part has made me a much more confident person and made me believe in myself! I have made so many friends and memories that I will keep forever! Rehearsals always gives me something to look forward to, especially if I was having a bad day, and have made my time at school some of the best years of my life.”
Melissa’s words show the true impact that these extracurricular activities have on each and every one of the group: enhancing them as individuals and by believing in themselves and one another, creating a feeling that they can achieve whatever they aim to do.
