High School Musical

In November 2014, The Dukeries presented High School Musical!

The portrayal of Troy and Gabriella's difficult journey to love was beautifully crafted by Corrie Billyeald, Jacey Peacock and Harriet Rhodes. The chorus and band certainly got the audiences up and out of their seats during the big showstoppers  'Status Quo' and 'We're all in this together'! The Drama Department are incredibly proud of all students hard work, dedication and professionalism. We believe the whole experience allowed our students 'to spread their wings to broad new horizons', to quote Mrs Darbus!
