Students get Footloose!


Students from The Gryphon School have been impressing audiences with their performance of the hit musical Footloose.  More than eighty students took part in singing and dancing roles, with another twenty-four performing in the orchestra and others involved in hair and make-up and the stage crew.

Audiences were captivated with the standard of the performance with over 800 people viewing the show across the three nights.  Jo Curtis who saw the show said “What a stunning performance, I had to keep reminding myself they were school students!”  The show featured all the original songs from the musical including hits such as ‘Holding out for a Hero’, ‘Let’s Hear it for the Boy’ and the title song ‘Footloose’, performed by the cast and orchestra.

Sixteen year old Nathaniel Berry who played one of the lead roles said “I absolutely loved it! Being given the opportunity to play Ren is one of the best things I’ve ever done.  The sense of community with the rest of the cast and the teachers has been amazing and is something I’ll always remember”.

Headteacher Steve Hillier said “The professional quality of the Footloose production has been outstanding.  From the set design, to lighting, choreography, acting and musical production, students have been incredibly professional and their hard work and dedication has delivered an amazing show that we are all exceptionally proud of”.
