Practically Perfect in Every Way! – Flixton Girls students and staff showed dedication and determination ensuring the show must go on, following the closure of the school due to snow.

Following months of rehearsals the cast and crew really did put on a dazzling and polished performance of Disney’s and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins Jr., which is based on one of the most popular Disney movies of all time and the Broadway musical that played for over 2,500 performances and received multiple Olivier and Tony Awards nominations.

Our motivation for putting on a school production is so our students can display of performance skills along with reliability, resilience, determination and dedication; all skills we at FGS actively encourage.

We know our FGS Performing Arts team are very proud of all students, without whom there wouldn’t have been a show - including those assisting backstage and colleagues who provided support with sound / lighting, costumes, set design, props and more – it really was a team effort - congratulations everyone!

Many parents and staff who attended the performances commented:

‘Dazzling performances on stage tonight as Mary Poppins Jnr finally gets underway. Stars of the future for sure, thanks for all the support, great turn out on such a cold evening!’

‘What a week! Getting to work with this incredible team @FGSperf_arts, this year has been so much fun - they really make the memories for our girl’s @FlixtonGS. And super proud of my Parks girls who have very bright futures’

‘We’ll never forget you Mary Poppins!! So proud of the talent, hard work and dedication show on stage tonight. Thank you to all the students and staff at @FlixtonGS for making it happen.’

‘Amazing show. All the girls did a great job well done.’

‘We saw the show last night, Amy was singing in the choir - utterly fantastic production, so well done - the cast were brilliant! Our youngest, said it was even better than the film! Well done and congratulations to everyone involved!

Thanks must also go to our sponsors for their assistance in the preparation for this production, all parents for the continued encouragement of your daughters and Friends of Flixton for providing refreshments.

We are already looking forward to next years’ show – watch this space!
