Matilda 2023

Alverton School was transformed into the terrifying Crunchem Hall on the last week in May with truly fabulous and inspirational performances from our Key Stage 2 children as they performed the show Matilda the Musical Jr.

The Years 5 and 6 Drama Club spend the year preparing for and rehearsing their production and these children have been amazing. They are an incredibly talented group who have worked incredibly hard and their enthusiasm and commitment make the whole process a hugely enjoyable experience. They were joined in the last few weeks by the choir who were also brilliant!

Our annual musical production is one of the highlights of the school calendar and, every year, it engenders a huge sense of team spirit, fun and enjoyment. It also emphasises Alverton’s real strengths as a whole-school community with parents, families, friends, staff and children working together to create something spectacular with the children that they will never forget.

Mr Higgs said: “I know as both a teacher and a parent that the opportunity pupils at Alverton have to be part of a performance like this is not something that happens in every schools as every aspect of the quality of our production is something you would expect to see from a dedicated theatre group rather than a school. Matilda was another example of the exceptionally high standards which are set by our children and staff. The quality of every detail of the show reflects the care and time which everyone has so selflessly invested in it. Thank you to everyone who supported it and to all those involved, particularly of course, our exceptionally talented children.”
