We Will Rock You
Rehearsals are underway for our fabulous show 'We Will Rock You' which is taking place at 7pm on Tuesday 8th, Wednesday 9th and Thursday 10th December 2015.
Set in the year 2300, live music has been banned from the Planet Mall. Everyone wears the same clothes, thinks the same thoughts and goes about in a brain-dead gaga haze. A bunch of Bohemians are looking for the 'Rhapsody' in the rocky rubble of Tottenham Court Tube Station. With the help of Pop, an ancient hippie librarian, who is researching secret history through old copies of NME (New Musical Express), two soul rebels, Galileo and Scaramouche, find Rock's Holy Grail, Brian May's guitar buried in the remains of Wembley Stadium.
Tickets are only £3 per person and are available from Student Services and main reception. Don't miss out!
On Thursday 3rd December, students from several local primary schools came in to enjoy a dress rehearsal of the show. Our students received great feedback, including the following message from Helen Olson, Year 5/6 Phase Leader at Barwic Parade Primary School:
I just wanted to drop you an email to let you know how much we enjoyed the performance on Thursday. The cast were just amazing! They are so confident and talented. It was obvious that everyone had worked so hard and the children had gained so much from the experience. One of my children said they had goose bumps! The year 6 pupils at Barwic Parade are totally inspired by your students, I have already been inundated with suggestions for their own leaving performance based on the things they saw on Thursday. It was also nice to see some of my ex students too, settling in and getting involved with different projects at Selby High.
Please pass on my message to all involved - it really was fab!! Good luck to everyone for the real performances - it will be brilliant!
