Junior Drama Production 2014 - 'Around The World In 80 Days'

The week beginning Monday 3rd March saw Grosvenor stage its annual Junior Drama Production, performing ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ to almost two thousand audience members over four entertaining and action-packed performances.  

Under the leadership of Director Mrs Orla Young and Musical Director Mr Jonathan Arnold this year’s cast and crew, comprising over 120 pupils in Forms 1 - 4, combined to deliver a vibrant and entertaining take on the show, which is based on Jules Verne’s classic novel.  Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th March saw the cast deliver matinée performances to visiting Primary School children in the William Moles Hall, while on the evenings of Thursday 6th and Friday 7th the show was staged for members of the paying public.

The production saw a number of acclaimed performances delivered by lead actors Stephen Hedley (Phileas Fogg), Reuben Browne (Passepartout), Alex Rees (Inspector Fix), Sarah Myles (Aouda), Libby Duncan (The Blue Lotus/Miriam) and Robbie Macduff (Fallentin/Colonel Proctor).  In addition the show was brought to life by a superb supporting Chorus comprising over 90 pupils as well as a talented band of musicians who delivered its popular score with aplomb throughout.

Following four accomplished, professional and entertaining performances all in attendance were left wowed by the level of application and effort which enabled Grosvenor’s cast to produce such a superb series of shows.  In recent times the school has deservedly earned a name for delivering Musical Drama productions of the highest quality and ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ served only to enhance this reputation.

Congratulations to everybody involved in Grosvenor’s production of ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ who helped to make the show such an overwhelming success - we look forward to seeing many of its talented actors treading the boards again before long.
