Last year, 2018, Cherry Oak School was selected by the Royal Shakespeare Company to become a "Matilda The Musical Champion School". This meant that with support from the RSC, Cherry Oak would put on its own version of the multi award winning West End and Broadway Musical !
Matilda The Musical is an adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl novel; Matilda, the story of a bright, rebellious young girl with special powers. Sadly for Matilda life has dealt her a rough hand, with neglectful parents and a terrifying headteacher! Thankfully with the support and help of her teacher, the ever caring Miss Honey and her school friends, Matilda learns to stand up to the injustices of the world she lives in and along the way discovers her special powers!
Musical Directors, Choreographers and Stage Directors from the West End production of Matilda the Musical trained and supported some of our staff led by Jacci Cottam.
Every Pupil was involved in the production and starred in the show. We are so proud of them all and what they achieved. The performance was watched by Parents, Governors, representatives from the Royal Shakespeare Company and people from the local community. It was a resounding success and all who watched the show said how amazing our pupils were and how hard they must have worked!
Below are just a few highlights from the performance.
Cherry Oak School continues to work in partnership with the RSC and Birmingham Hippodrome
Justin Fletcher aka: Mr Tumble, came to visit Cherry Oak school! He filmed an episode of the Cbeebies programme, Something Special. It was a very exciting time for the pupils and parents.
The programme aired on the 1st of March 2018 and pupils and parents had the opportunity to watch it together in school.
The episode is available to watch on Cbeeies iPlayer:
