"Wow! What a production. You should all be ridiculously proud of what you’ve achieved with this. It was superb and the children were incredible. To see such a young cast and a mix of abilities made it all the more amazing."
“As good as any professional performance - they were absolutely fantastic”
"A truly fantastic show! Congratulations to you all and all the cast and musicians."
"A huge congratulations to the amazing cast and band. They had so much energy I could not take my eyes off of them. It was an extremely moving performance and I was moved to tears very literally. Can’t wait for the next show."
"Brilliant performance. Well done to all Staff and Students involved."
"Hairspray is my absolute favourite musical and always brings a tear to my eye – last night was no exception, you have some incredibly talented pupils there. Myself and a carer brought 5 residents over and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves! They were absolutely buzzing afterwards, chatting about how wonderful the youngsters were and how colourful everything was and how good the music and singing was."
Students shone in the bright lights of the St Cecilia auditorium this week in this years school production of Hairspray Jr. Students from all year groups joined together to send a positive message to the audience that is still as relevant now as it was in 1962, that different does not necessarily mean bad but that we should include all people no matter the colour of their skin.
A big thank you to all of those involved the making of the production and those that came to watch and support the students in Hairspray Jr.
We look forward to seeing you at the next production!
The Hairspray Jr Team
