Chicago

Huge congratulations to all of the boys involved in our joint production of Chicago at Northern Stage with Westfield School.

Over two months of hard work paid off to pull this ambitious production together and in the end the boys and girls but on an incredible show for the public.

There was an amazing response from the audience at each show and both company and audience left the Northern Stage uplifted and no doubt humming one of the many catchy tunes from this musical theatre classic.

The production gave the cast, band and crew first hand experience of working in a professional theatre, which is quite an intimidating and high pressured environment to work in, but despite this the students raised their game, took every opportunity and challenged themselves.

The staff at Northern Stage were fantastic and provided a safe environment to work in with a great atmosphere. It was once again a pleasure to work with staff and students from Westfield School on our fourth production together.

Friendships have been forged and each year we become stronger as a team to give students of both schools a first class experience of what it takes to put on a major production at a public theatre.

The students involved will no doubt remember this experience for the rest of their lives and look back fondly on Chicago 2020.

The biggest question students have been asking? “What are we doing next year?” Watch this space!
