Congratulations to Sophie Evans on an outstanding premier performance on the West End stage last night (8.3.2010)

Sophie was absolutely superb in the leading role as “Dorothy” in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new production of the “Wizard of Oz” in the London Palladium, where she takes the stage every Tuesday evening and on selected dates.

Excited Governors, students, and staff from the College travelled to London to give their support to Sophie on her opening night. They were enthralled by the whole production and performance given by the cast, the amazing staging and the whole spectacle of the evening. 

The standing ovation was richly deserved and students were able to meet both Sophie and Michael Crawford after the show where Michael told the Headteacher Mrs O’Sullivan that the audience was the best to date.

Mrs O’Sullivan said “This has been an amazing journey for Sophie and we have enjoyed every minute. The journey continues as she performs at the highest level on the London stage. Sophie is the consummate professional and she owned the stage. Our hopes and dreams have come true she was Dorothy”
