Sheffield Girls’ students dazzle in production of The Importance of Being Earnest

It was ‘lights, camera, action!’ in the Senior School last week as not one, not two, but three entirely different casts from Years 9 - 13 put on an exciting and polished performance of ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’.With sharp tongued characters, tipsy butlers, triviality and just a hint of wickedness, audience members were thoroughly entertained!

Alongside our fabulous performers, students from across the Senior School worked together to bring the performance to life and make sure it ran smoothly across all three nights.

This included our String Quartet accompanied by Dr Thiselton and Frau Wallace who provided live music throughout the play and our 7Up and Y8 choirs who performed three fantastic numbers.

Our costume team, alongside Frau Chadwick, had the huge task of producing all of the costumes for the production. The students were able to learn and develop sewing skills whilst repurposing and upcycling existing garments to create outstanding outfits for all the characters.

Finally, the Tech Team led by our Sixth Form students, oversaw stage management, lighting, sounds, props and a microphone for each performer. Three separate casts added an additional level of complexity, but following well considered planning and organisation they helped ensure each performance was executed to a professional standard.

Keeley Morton, Head of Drama and director of the play, said: ‘School musicals and plays are a brilliant opportunity for our students to express themselves and showcase their talents. I was so incredibly proud to see all of our students' hard work and commitment culminate in three outstanding performances. They came together as a team and supported each other to create professional and exciting performances and we were delighted to hear such wonderful feedback from audience members across all three nights. We can't wait to get started with the next one!’
