Blood, Sweat and Tiaras
From the drama of the French Revolution to a side-splitting comedy sketch set in a shoe shop in 1980s Lancashire, there was something for everyone in Blood, Sweat and Tiaras. Every girl involved with the production had her chance to shine and it was extremely exciting to see both the accomplished and developing talent that is clearly being nurtured and encouraged at QM.
Year IV and LVI girls led the way with incredible renditions of ‘Cabaret’ (Cabaret), ‘Seasons of Love’ (Rent), ‘Cell Block Tango’ (Chicago), ‘Bring Him Home’ (Les Misérables), ‘I’d Give My Life for You’ (Miss Saigon) and a hilarious interpretation of Monty Python’s ‘Four Yorkshiremen’ sketch.
The younger girls were not to be outdone with convincing performances in a selection of scenes including an entertaining duologue of two fish in their fishbowl and fantastic versions of ‘Naughty’ and ‘When I Grow Up’ (Matilda) as well as songs from Wicked including ‘For Good’ where Cantiamo provided a beautiful support to the soloists.
Blood, Sweat and Tiaras was full of surprise performances and a chance to see what our young actors are capable of.
We are delighted to announce that the next production just before Christmas will be Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story.
