A SCHOOL in Ascot has brought the classic English musical Oliver Twist to life with some impressive performances.

Victorian London was brought to life at the Marist School, Sunninghill in their annual school production. This year’s show was Lionel Bart’s Oliver, based on Charles Dickens classic novel Oliver Twist.

The Whole School Production was a collaboration between different departments, including music and drama.

Emily White, Head of Drama, said: “It has been an absolute pleasure working with such a talented and motivated cast. This is the first time that we have produced a musical with pupils from both the Prep and Senior Phases of the school and it has been a joy to see the girls working together and inspiring one another.

“We are incredibly grateful to everyone who has helped us with the show; a big thank you must go to Mrs Ellwood who has designed and painted a stunning set and Mrs Bowley who has worked tirelessly to source costumes and make last minute alterations. We must also thank the Site team who have built the set and many of the props.”

The musical production features performances from girls in year 5 all the way up to year 13, as well as music by the school orchestra and choir.

The two performances of the production sold out.
