School of Rock
Finborough School has staged School of Rock for an epic five show run. An incredible concert arena was constructed for the show which drew packed audiences for all three nights and two matinee performances.
The music, singing, acting and dancing was at West End standard with audiences wowed by quite incredible performances in the show directed by Head of Performing Arts at Finborough Mr Jon Bridgeman. Choreography by Rachel McMillan was visionary drawing beautifully syncopated performances from a cast of over one hundred children, coupled with breath taking music from our rock orchestra directed my Mrs Helen Lyons.
Tom was an absolute tour de force as lead character Dewey Finn, enthralling the audiences with his exceptional vocal talent, immense stage presence and genius comedic timing. A brilliant cast of children formed the Horace Green Prep School class, exuding an array of talent that had everyone entranced throughout the show. Their on stage teachers and parents lead by Principal Miss Rosalie Mullins played by Nell and Sophie, were absolutely fantastic.
The audiences were genuinely in awe of the quality of the show, which received sustained ovations throughout and at the conclusion of each performance.
Mr. Clark highlighted “Whilst it is natural to view our children’s performances with a rosy glow, this show is way beyond anything I have ever seen from a school before. We are justly incredibly proud of our outstanding children and their teachers for creating something very, very special that will remain in our hearts and minds forever. We have truly ascended the heights of Mount Rock, propelled by an incredible cast directed with exceptional vision and ambition. As the music fades and the stage is dismantled, this production is sure to go down in Finborough history.”
