Years 3 & 4 present: Pirates Versus Mermaids!

24 Mar 2022

A Massive well done to our Preppies who absolutely smashed their performances in this term’s entertaining play!

Years 3 & 4 sailed the seven seas with seven songs in their adaptation of Pirates Versus Mermaids, by Gaynor Boddy and Rebecca Kincaid.

A veritable musical treasure chest, the 40 minute spectacular had the audience of family and friends on the crest of a wave with a story that pitted pugnacious pirates against marauding mermaids.

Rehearsals began weeks ago for the Year 3 and 4 musical in which sails were hoisted and cutlasses sharpened for a swashbuckling tale packed full of adventure, featuring ‘Captain Scarypants’ on one side and ‘Neptuna’ on the other.

Speaking about the production, Mrs Shearn said: “The children certainly threw themselves into the musical with gusto for hearty performances that were loved by the audience.

“There were a lot of lines and lyrics to learn but, as always, our pupils rose to the challenge and did fantastically well.”

We would also like to thank everyone who supported the production throughout this period, including staff from both Senior and Prep Schools.
