Highfields presents “Dracula! A Melodrama – The Vampire Vanquished” as the KS2 Production to parents to mark the end of term! The spectacular Dracula show was a musical extravanganza, directed by Head of Music Ms Rowan Cozens and Speech & Drama teacher Mrs Pamela Keen. Performing to two packed houses on Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th July, children from Forms 3 to 6 dressed in ghoulish outfits to bring to life – haha! – the story of the intrepid Jonathan Harker and his journey through Transylvania where he encountered pirates, zombies and vampires and finally vanquished the great Count Dracula. The children performed songs and dances which they have been rehearsing for many weeks and parents made some truly ghoulish costumes.
Very special thanks to Mrs Yvette Henson for her scenery building and prop making and the wonderful Mr Jim Stretton for his percussion accompaniment and musical sound effects.
