‘The Show Must Go On’ Arthur Terry Students

After months of planning and rehearsing, last Thursday (23rd), dedicated performing arts students from the Arthur Terry School in Four Oaks held the first ever student led school Show.

‘The Show Must Go On’ was created and performed by 21 students from years 9-13. The performance went through the decades, starting from the 1950s, visiting some of the nation’s favourite musical including: Grease, Hairspray, Mamma Mia and even High School Musical.

The performance was in aid of raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust, a charity that the school has previously raised money for through completing the Great Midlands Fun Run.

Both the cast and the audience thoroughly enjoyed the performance and the cast hope for another student led show to be held again soon!
The show was directed by sixth form students Hannah Cook (year 12) and Emily Joeres (year 13) who both led the cast with dedication and enthusiasm, work hard outside of their studies to ensure the show was a huge success. They also took on the roles of promoting and advertising to ensure the profile of the school show remained high as it has in previous years.

Sam Kibble, Deputy Headteachers said ‘’The Show Must Go On’ proved to be a very successful and enjoyable evening. The Sixth Form students took on all aspects of creating a show that took us through a range of eras. It was inspiring to watch a group of students take on leadership roles in order to produce a fantastic performance.’
