School Production of 'Chicago' ....

Family and friends of Backwell School were treated to an intelligent, witty and convincingly devilish, musical extravaganza when the school performed the hit musical 'Chicago' to five sell-out audiences in February 2018.

The orchestra delivered a musical triumph, giving testament to the hard work and remarkably gifted students within the school. The brass section and double bass were up on stage as a central part of the set, enabling the audience to see the energetic talent as well hear it. The players gave sassy, stylish performances as they razzle-dazzled their way through snappy songs and classy dance routines.

The show was wonderfully sung and acted, with a cast who wereobviously having an absolute blast performing it!  The jazzy, colourful costumes, the simple yet genius stage set, and the sublime makeup all added to the quality of the show.

This sophisticated production of  'Chicago' was a real testament to the hard work and dedication of both students and staff in creating a fast-paced spectacle, wonderfully delivered!

Here are just a few of the comments and congratulations that the school received:
