TPS presents Oliver!

TPS presents Oliver!

As I write this over 100 students are busily preparing for our big production of Oliver! In January 2018 we will be at the New Theatre Royal in Portsmouth for this very exciting show with students from Y7 through to Y11 all performing.  Putting together such a large production is built upon lots of immense hard work and effort from both the students and staff involved.  I have been treated to a short sample of the finished product and I now cannot wait to see the whole thing brought together on the big stage!  Details of the performance times and how to buy tickets are below.

Performance remains a vital part of how we do things at TPS and the benefits are huge for the students who take part.  We have an excellent cast and crew for our latest production and performing in front of your peers is a great way to build confidence and develop talent.  It’s not just those on the stage who make a successful show but all of the students who are behind the scenes and co-ordinating all of the technical aspects of the performance.  It has also been brilliant to see the strong sense of team work and collaboration across different age groups that a show like this promotes.  Our older students are excellent role models for the younger year groups and I look forward to seeing these lower school students in the many performance opportunities to come during their time with us.  I’ve no doubt that the memories they make during this show will be some of their best from school.
