Penistone Grammar School Presented Our House
The Visual & Performing Arts Department major production of Our House took place from 17 April until 19 April 2018.
The story followed Camden lad Joe Casey (played by Tom Collings) who, on the night of his 16th birthday, makes a decision that will change his life. Trying to impress Sarah (played by Emily Seymour), the girl of his dreams, Joe breaks into a building development overlooking his home on Casey Street. But things take a turn for the worse as the police turn up.
Our comedy musical was filled with the music of Madness, from One Step Beyond, Our House and Baggy Trousers and our 50 strong cast of students from Year 7 to Year 13 and we are very proud of their stunning performances.
Special thanks to Mr Read and Ms Rasheed with whom this production couldn’t have happened. An extra special thanks to our Post-16 student Charlotte Bentley who spent hours choreographing the dance scenes. Thanks to Mr Berry and Mr Murray for helping with set design and to Jamie and Josh for lighting and sound. Thanks to the SLT and particularly Mr Lacey for sharing our vision. My final thanks is to all who came on the night and for supporting our show. I hope you all had wonderful night.
Mr Darren Edwards, Leader of Visual & Performing Arts.
