The Purbeck School of Rock!
Last week students at The Purbeck School served up a rocktastic show as they performed The School of Rock to large audiences in The Purbeck Hall. Starring Josh Gardner and Alanis Sibley-Ware, the musical is based upon the film School of Rock, and tells the story of wannabe rock star Dewey Finn, who poses as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. When he discovers his students’ musical talents, he enlists his fifth-graders to form a rock group and conquer the Battle of the Bands.
The music for The Purbeck School’s show was played entirely by the school’s students in collaboration with Head of Music Tom Davis. Tom, who was Musical Director of the show, said, ‘I was really pleased and proud of the performances from all the students. They showed excellent commitment and engagement.’
A performance from The Rifles Band on December 6th concludes this term’s musical entertainment at the school in Wareham.
