In the cold gloom of early December, parents, staff and students were treated to the glorious colour and warmth of the Anglo’s production of Mary Poppins. Teachers and students’ hard work and commitment shone through in every performance, with the audience clapping along to the familiar tunes of ‘Step in Time’ and ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’. Set in the round, with hand painted sets and amazing special effects, the sights and sounds of the streets and roof tops of Edwardian London came alive. With a mesmerising violin solo, sweeps popping up out of chimneys, Bert dancing through the smoky roof tops and snow gently falling through ‘Feed the Birds’ , no wonder one parent described it as ‘more than a performance …..a feast for all the senses’. The performers, who ranged from Year 7 to Upper Sixth, had a truly magical experience taking part in such a delightful show and it’s rewarding for them to know that the audience found it just as magical.
“So much talent from the students and teachers to achieve such a high standard performing arts, so happy my son was able to be part of it. Congratulations to you all, can’t wait for next year !”
“What a wonderful evening we had watching the fabulous and uplifting performance of Mary Poppins! Our 2 and 4 year old were totally captivated throughout the play, as were we! Yet again the art department had worked their magic, the violin performance was excellent and the fluorescent toys were ingenious! The whole cast made the evening thoroughly enjoyable. Congratulations to the dedicated staff, who we know have spent so many hours going above and beyond, and of course to the Anglo students who have been working hard for months to pull off another fabulous show. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! “
“Many congratulations on a brilliant show! The stage setting was very innovative and the young people very talented.”
