From September to December students from Notre Dame were rehearsing for the school production: Hairspray. In this classic musical Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, is on a mission to follow her dreams. She sets out to dance her way onto national TV. Tracy’s audition makes her a local star and soon she is using her new-found fame to fight for equality, bagging local heartthrob Link Larkin along the way!
The show featured hit songs such as: 'Welcome to the Sixties', You Can't Stop The Beat', and 'The Nicest Kids in Town'.
Hours of work went into the production and it really paid off on opening night. It was a wonderful event with a fantastic message to deliver across school. Staff in the Performing Arts Department are so incredibly proud of the work that students showcased. It has been a wonderful few months rehearsing and performing and its great to see new friendships formed around school from being in the production. It's fantastic to know that the show creates a real sense of community.
Since performing in the four shows students have danced, sung and performed in the End of Year Advent Services and will also perform at the Centenary on 8th February at the City Hall.
Once again a huge well done to all the cast!
