Top Class Performance of 'Annie' at St Thomas More School

Last week, St Thomas More Catholic School pupils took to the stage to perform this year’s ‘sell out’ production of Annie. Pupils from across the year groups took on the challenging roles and performed five shows to staff, pupils, local primary schools, parents, governors and guests.

Hayden Grant, one of the school’s Year 7 journalists and Annie cast member, said, ‘Being in Annie is one of the best experiences I've ever had and I have enjoyed every second of it. These past days have been really fun as I got to meet other cast members, improve in drama and work better in front of a crowd.’

Michael Thornhill, one of the school governors, was elated with the quality of the opening night show, and congratulated all those involved for an outstanding production and for all the hard work that went into the production. He especially noted the brilliant talent of lead actor, Tayla Lohan, whose portrayal of Annie was both moving and funny, a star in the making!

Mr Gaughran, Acting Head of Music, said, ‘Yet again, another wonderful production from the students of St. Thomas More School. “Annie” saw the coming together of students mostly from year 7 to 9 working really hard to learn songs, movement and scripts. It was wonderful to see new friendships being made and people having so much fun engaging in the performing arts together. We are all so proud of the students and their exceptionally hard work!’
