Special Community Performance of Guys and Dolls

Senior citizens from the local community enjoy a production of Guys and Dolls at Croydon High.

As has now become our tradition, we welcomed over 130 senior citizens from the local community to a special preview performance of our whole-school production Guys and Dolls. They joined us on Wednesday afternoon and were thrilled with their time at Croydon High.

Upon arrival, our visitors were greeted by various pupils acting as ushers, who helped guide them to their seats. Mrs Pattison met and chatted with some of our guests as they settled in before the show. Soon, it was curtains up! They were dazzled by the acting, singing and dancing from the entire cast, as well as the fantastic musical accompaniment from our show band. A brief interval in the middle offered some time to enjoy tea and cakes and discuss the performance.

Our guests really enjoyed our rendition of Guys and Dolls and left us with a ‘spring’ in their step! It’s a highlight of the production process, as we engage with and give back to our local community. Here are some of the things they had to say about their visit.

“Big congratulation to the pupils for a great afternoon’s entertainment and to all the staff and orchestra. All the backstage work, lighting, refreshments… an amazing job done.”

“Thank you so much for inviting us to your production of Guys and Dolls. We all had a wonderful afternoon and it was such a pleasure to see so many talented youngsters. Please convey our congratulations to them. Thank you again for your hospitality and the delicious cakes.”

We look forward to welcoming them again next year!
