Elf Performance 2017

Elf was a celebration of talent and determination from everybody who was involved. Every single member of our wonderful cast was dedicated and passionate from the first read through of the script to our final performance. My favourite moment of the process was performing at the end of our exhausting, yet incredibly rewarding, rehearsal journey.

There was a feeling of excitement and anticipation as the lights dimmed and the curtain opened. I’m sure others will agree that there is no better feeling than the final bow at the end of a show, listening to the applause from the audience.  The catchy soundtrack and witty dialogue combined with a clever set design and a sense of camaraderie from the full cast and crew made the two evenings unforgettable ones.

Elf was a wonderful experience for Year 7 pupils to be part of their first high school production and for Year 11 pupils to make the most of their final opportunity to participate in a Christmas performance at Moorside High School. Thank you to all of the teachers involved for their encouragement and motivation throughout the rehearsal process. The musical adaptation of the well-known film was perfectly heart-warming and was successful in getting cast members, teachers and audiences into the Christmas spirit.
