The very talented Upper School cast came up trumps with their lively and entertaining production of Daisy Pulls It Off, a tongue-in-cheek parody of life in a girls’ boarding school in the 1920s. After months of rehearsals, girls from the Lower Fourth to Upper Fifth threw themselves into three outstanding performances over three days. For the first performance, we welcomed guests from our local community – from St Mark’s Primary, Cold Ash and The Downs, Compton as well as residents from Winchombe Place and the Argyles care homes.
The next day, the audience was made up of Downe House parents, staff and girls whilst the third performance featured a 20-minute extract from the production to entertain prospective parents visiting Downe House for the Upper School Experience Day.
Teacher of Speech and Drama and Daisy Pulls It Off Creative Director, Miss Anna Rose said,
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with this group of girls over the last two terms; their hard work and commitment in rehearsal has been impressive. They have truly embraced the style of the piece and I think we can safely say that the girls ‘pulled it off’! They were outstanding across the three performances as they entertained parents, girls, prospective parents and girls, as well as members of the local community who all enjoyed it. Thank you to all the staff and girls for working so hard to make this production such a success!
