This year saw 97 Performing Arts students from Years 9 to 13 perform the
acclaimed musical “Our House”.
The show featured a live band, professional lighting design as well as
costumes sourced by each performer. The students performed numerous songs
from the Madness back collection together with choreographed dance
The show week displayed the skills of three different leading casts from a
range of year groups.
For the first time at the Academy, Year 9 took the centre stage for the
Wednesday evening performance and held all of the 12 lead roles. This was a
phenomenal achievement for the year group and was testament to their hard
work and dedication.
The final night of the show was “snowed off” and rearranged for the
following week. Students put together an outstanding display of commitment,
independence and organisation as they rallied round to ensure that every
member of the cast had received the message that “the show must go on”.
The Monday evening performance was a credit to the students - as without
their persistence to make sure they saw the project to the end, the show
would not have been such a fantastic achievement for all involved.
Congratulations to the cast of Our House 2018.
