last May and, over the months, as the production has come
together, there has been a real sense of teamwork and
camaraderie amongst all those taking part, both pupils and staff
onstage and behind the scenes."
'My Fair Lady', has been a firm favourite
with audiences around the world for over 50 years. This
production is produced and directed by Ashley Fulton who has

new original movement, many styles of dance together to give the
production a more contemporary feel.
Speaking about the show, Ashley commented:
"Directing and producing a classic musical is something I always
see as a real challenge. I want to give it a sense of uniqueness
making it look and sound different.
"This production will have a new image thanks
to exciting new costumes and a purpose built set."
