This year’s school production, ‘Great Expectations’, was another massive success on the nights of Thursday 4th and Friday 5th December. The performance was a new adaptation by Nick Ormerod and Declan Donnellan, published by Nick Bern Books.
Special mention must be given to our musicians, as all incidental music in the performance was composed by students in Years 10 and 12, and performed by students from across the school. Well done to those boys for the suitably spooky mood created by their ambient sounds.
There were excellent acting performances from the entire company, demonstrating the range of talent that Isleworth & Syon cintinues to offer. The technical aspects were also highly impressive, such as the use of a smoke machine and low lighting to create a spooky atmosphere. The Level 3 BTEC Performing Arts students were fantastic as they assisted Mrs Davies-Jones as producers of the performance.
Many thanks, also, to Mrs Stewart and Mr McDonnell for their direction of ‘Great Expectations’, as well as all of the parents/carers, staff and students who watched each performance. Finally, a huge congratulations to each and every member of the company, for their hard work, commitment and dedication during the rehearsal period.
