Chicago Closes To Rave Reviews

Chicago 2018

The school show has finished for another year but what a show it has been! The glitz and glamour of Chicago never fails to dazzle and Wellington’s performances were truly spectacular.The story itself focuses on the power of celebrity – something which resonates with today’s audiences more than ever.

Wellington School shows have always been of a high standard but these consistent results should not be taken for granted. Months of rehearsals take place, led by our Director of Music (and show Producer), Mr Haggerty. The cast, too, dedicate an inordinate amount of their time to learning their routines (under the meticulous instruction of choreographer, Heather Rennie Robinson) and lines, coming to school over the weekends and holidays in order to perfect the polished performance hundreds of us viewed on Thursday, Friday and Saturday of last week.

We are extremely proud of the whole Wellington community for investing so much time and expertise in the show and take this opportunity to thank you most profusely. However, without casts of inspiring young performers, we wouldn’t have a show at all so thanks to you for making Chicago such a success!
