Each year, the staff and students at St Edmund’s College go above and beyond to deliver extraordinary performances for the College Production, and this year has been no exception.
Me and My Girl follows the story of the working-class Bill Snibson as he is summoned from Lambeth as the long-lost 14th heir to the Hareford family estate and fortune. With the Duchess determined to transform him into a nobleman, Bill desperately tries to hold onto his sweetheart Sally, despite the aristocracy deeming her too common to reside at Hareford Hall.
With popular numbers including Lambeth Walk and The Sun Has Got His Hat On featured throughout, the cast and crew certainly had big shoes, or ‘Ones and Twos’, to fill.
Inciting plenty of laughter, dancing and standing ovations from the audience, Me and My Girl showcased the incredible determination, commitment and talent of the students and staff at St Edmund’s College, a unique school which strives to educate the whole person through fostering an array of skills and interests to create all-rounded students.
Each night, the cast worked tirelessly to deliver exceptional performances, producing laugh-out-loud, all-singing and all-dancing routines fit for a West End Stage. Meanwhile, the behind-the-scenes crew including the school orchestra, the set design team and the sound and lighting technicians working skillfully to transport the audience from The Spotlight Theatre in Hertfordshire to Hareford Hall and the streets of Lambeth.
Mr Mostyn, Headmaster, shared: “This year’s College Production was an outstanding display of the diverse talent of our students, both on and off stage. Congratulations to all who dedicated themselves to bringing Me and My Girl to life, it was a triumph.”
A huge congratulations to all of the staff and students involved both on and off stage!
