Our Cabaret Production

Our students put on an excellent performance of 'Cabaret', across 4 days this month. The production was expertly led by performing arts teacher, Neil McCurley. Our dance teacher ,Tara Choudrie, did an incredible job organising the choreography for the production.

We received a great review by Daisy Smith, at the Henley Standard-

“It’s a tough show, full of darkness and quite adult themes for such a young cast, but the production team, led by Neil McCurley, tackled it well.

The Rotherfield Hall was set out cabaret-style with the audience seated at small tables throughout the hall — though I would have liked them positioned closer together to build that intimate, packed crowd feel.

The show opened with Sam Burton-Harris and Oscar Hogg-Gomez, taking on the role of the MC as a double act. Initially I was not convinced by this idea, but the two cheeky chaps won me over quickly.

They had a huge role to carry the narrative of the show and embraced thequirky, camp, preposterous nature of the part.

My personal favourite moment was “Two Ladies” reworked to be the MCs asthe ladies — very clever, delightfully naughty and suggestive.

The dancers were a real highlight of the show. Tara Choudrie has done an incredible job with the choreography and every dancer was well rehearsed and committed to every movement confidently.

Genuinely, the standard was far beyond what I would expect from a college production.”
