Musi­cal mad’ stu­dents from across the year groups had the oppor­tu­nity to see Sam Mendes’ lav­ish pro­duc­tion of Char­lie and the Choco­late Fac­tory at the The­atre Royal Drury Lane.

The larger than life show with stun­ning sets and visual spe­cial effects cost in excess of 4 mil­lion to make and fin­ished with Char­lie and Willy Wonka rid­ing high above the audi­ence in a stun­ning glass elevator.

Pupils thor­oughly enjoyed the expe­ri­ence and although we arrived back at almost mid­night every­one agreed it was one of the best shows ever seen!

The next musi­cal the­atre trip will be to see Can­ter­bury Operatic’s pro­duc­tion of Sweeney Todd at The Mar­lowe the­atre where yours truly will be appear­ing on stage! More details to fol­low soon.
