This year’s school production adapted Nikolai Gogol’s satirical comedy ‘The Government Inspector’, first performed in 1836. The cast, including girls from The Green School, played to a packed school hall on the nights of Friday 6 and Saturday 7 December 2013. Gogol’s tale of corruption and stupidity was portrayed to such a high standard that it would be impossible to single out individual performers. The performance was deemed one of the most successful school productions in recent years, not just because of the outstanding cast, but also thanks to the wonderful musicians, led by Miss Andrews and Miss Lumber, who composed and performed all of the music. It is rare to see a school production scored to solely original compositions. Well done to all those involved!
Year 13 students Taheen, Ricardo, Maddie, Jack and Khobaib gave expert performances in their final time on the Isleworth & Syon stage. However, the future continues to be bright, with many younger cast members grabbing this opportunity to showcase their talents. We could be seeing them taking on the lead roles next year! As Mr McDonnell so aptly stated, “Seeing such young students create such a sophisticated piece of comedy was a real pleasure and testament to the wealth of talent at our disposal.”
Special thanks to the BTEC Performing Arts students and the backstage crew (led by Mrs Davies Jones) for their role in the smooth running of the shows, as well as to Miss Durber for her direction and in supporting Mr McDonnell, who led this year’s production.
