Barton Peveril Sixth Form College Performing Arts students performed Legally Blonde: The Musical, across three nights at The Berry Theatre. The students’ production took place on 4th, 5th and 6th July to large audiences of friends, family, local residents and pupils from across Hampshire’s schools.
This production was planned and performed by students across the College’s Performing Arts disciplines, from Music to the Performing Arts: Musical Theatre course. This is the last College production of the year and also marks the end of Second Years’ time at Barton Peveril, before they begin University, Acting School, Conservatoires, and jobs.
Speaking on the production, Barton Peveril Subject Leader for Performing Arts Anneka Wass said:
‘This year has been my first time working on the College production and I’m thrilled it was one of my favourite musicals, Legally Blonde. It was brilliant to see all the students work so hard from start to finish. They did a fantastic job transforming the film to the stage and should all be very proud of themselves.’
Speaking on the event, former pupil of The Mountbatten School Diana Thomas said:
‘Legally Blonde was an amazing experience, gaining new skills portraying a totally different character to one I normally play. Everyone was great to work with and it was so much fun.’
Former Crofton School pupil Peter Lavery added:
‘Being a part of such a fun and heart-warming show has been a fantastic experience. Barton Peveril productions are always the best!’
