Danielle Bentel a member of the school staff who is the producer and co-director of the production, is passionate about dramatic arts and the opportunities this extramural gives to students who suddenly show a completely different side of their personality which is not revealed on the sportsfield or academically.

Bentel has had many successful shows at the school and this event tops her ambitions to set Hyde Park High apart from the rest on the stage with this award-winning show.

The show runs from 3 to 6 May in the evenings and a matinee show will also be performed on 6 May at 3pm followed by the school’s final show that evening. Tickets are available through the school office at R50 each. Contact Avril Wright 011 447-2281 or email [email protected] to ensure that you have your seat booked for this fabulous production.
