From Wednesday 2nd to Friday 4th March, The Hundred of Hoo Academy welcomed the local community through it’s doors for this year’s Academy Musical performances of School’s Will Rock You. Organised by the Performing Arts Department, this was a display of our students’ hard work and talent.
After such an unprecedented time, we are overjoyed to welcome back our local community and celebrate the strides that all of our learners have made. This show was originally chosen for the 2019/2020 academic year and was sadly put on hold two weeks before opening. Now, three years later and two cast changes, everyone is ecstatic that they have finally been able to show off their hard work and dedication.
Audiences were wowed over three nights by our young cast and were left mesmerised by a “wonderful and magical evening.” We were all shocked by the reaction of audience members who returned more than once, commenting that “the show was amazing, performance from the cast was brilliant night by night.” We, as an Academy and a department, are truly humbled by the support over the last few weeks leading up to the final performance from our local community and we are so excited to continue this journey.
A final thank you must go to the students themselves; we would not have been able to put on this event without their talents, their resilience and their determination to perform no matter the circumstances. They have truly shown, not only their own passion for learning but what Hundred of Hoo learners can really achieve. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
