Be careful what you wish for

This year’s school production at the Blue Coat School was the musical ‘Into the Woods’. The show was led by creative director James Lacey and musical director Mr Emery. James is a former student of the Blue Coat, and has paved a successful career in the theatre since leaving the school in 2007. ‘Into the Woods’ is the fourth school production that James has returned to the Blue Coat to direct. James said: “In the past three years of school productions, the students have been challenged in dance in West Side Story, comedy and character work in Beauty and the Beast and singing in Les Miserables. This year we chose ‘Into the Woods’ to challenge the students as young actors and actresses, with a difficult script and complex characters to develop. As ever, the students rose to and exceeded that challenge and put on a fantastic performance.”
