The Music, Art and Drama (MAD) event began with an art exhibition in
the Drama Room, where guests got to see some amazing displays of art from Year 13 students.
The guests then sat at round tables in the Main Hall and enjoyed cheese and olives as the main show got underway.
A mix of drama and music on alternating stages meant there was a great mix of styles. A Year 11 student gave a dramatic and quirky performance of ‘Over the Moon’, Year 8 sang ‘Runaway Baby’ while the choir sang ‘And So It Goes’.
After a short break, there was an energetic second half, with the orchestra performing ‘Liberty Bell’, and Year 10 and 11 students staging scenes from Romeo and Juliet and a moving performance of ‘I Dreamed a Dream’.
The evening ended with versions of Stevie Wonder’s classic ‘Sir Duke’ and then Bruno Mars’ current hit ‘Uptown Funk’. Many thanks to the Arts Department for putting on such excellent entertainment.
