This year the HRS production is Loserville and students in Years 7 to 13 have been rehearsing ready for the 3-night performance from Wednesday 12th to Friday 14th July.
Loserville is about Michael Dork, a computer hacker who wants to beat a large computing conglomerate to sending the first email (It is 1971). Along the way he meets a girl, falls out with his best friend and defeats his arch enemy - the high school jock Eddie. This is a musical about loyalty, trust and that no one is a loser!
Mrs Stewart, Head of Drama and Media, said: "It has been a real pleasure to work with this creative Helena Romanes Team that features both students and staff. From the singing sessions during Friday lunch times to the rehearsals after school, they have all shown immense commitment and dedication to not only the drama department but also to their school community. I have especially loved this year how some of the songs / lyrics by James Bourne have resonated with some of our students allowing them to relate and not feel alone!”
Tickets cost £5.00 for concessions and £6.50 for adults. They go on sale from Friday 30th June and can be purchased in person at HRS main reception, via firstname.lastname@example.org or for existing parents and carers, through ParentPay.
