Box Hill School pupils star in 'The Great Gatsby'

Box Hill School, in Mickleham, concluded a fantastic autumn term with an inspirational musical production of ‘The Great Gatsby’.

Featuring the work of pupils in Years 10 to 13, the production follows a cast of colourful characters living in the fictional town of West Egg, on prosperous Long Island in the summer of 1922. The story primarily focuses on the enigmatic millionaire Jay Gatsby and his obsession for the beautiful former debutante Daisy Buchanan. The evening was comprised of drama, dancing and jazz, performed by the school's talented students, with a unique set which allowed the guests to experience the drama first-hand, as it unfolded. A lively Jazz band accompanied refreshments, giving guests a great opportunity to join the party!

The show was produced and directed by Mrs Donna Walton, Director of Theatre Arts, with choreography by Mrs Lynsey Buhagiar, teacher of Dance and Drama, and musical direction by Mr Adam Stanworth, Director of Music. A special mention also to Sarika Shah, who has completed her 5th show working behind the scenes on set production and props.

Cory Lowde, Headmaster of the boarding school, commented “Yet another outstanding production combining the efforts and talents of pupils, from acting and dancing to lighting, sound and set production, enabling strengths across the board to shine and create a spine tingling, dynamic show.”
