Ormiston Denes’ head of drama, Hannah Morris, who is leading the production, said: “Throughout the year the students have participated in a theatre group that has focused on their performance skills and supported them to develop their singing, dancing and acting abilities. All of their hard work and development, over the course of the academic year, has been collated for this showcase of their talents, themed around travel.”

With more than 40 students auditioning for parts in the showcase, children from all year groups have been involved with music “inspired” by the different areas.
