St John Bosco Arts College pulls off The Greatest Show

St John Bosco Arts College has wowed audiences with its 2018 school production, The Greatest Show. More than 240 of students from Years 7 to 13 were cast in the production, inspired by last year’s blockbuster hit The Greatest Showman.

Students spent months rehearsing for the all-singing, all-dancing show, which is inspired by the circus and the lives of its star attractions.

With an exceptionally talented cast it is difficult to highlight all the noteworthy performances. Emily played the charismatic ringmaster Barnum and left the audience completely captivated through her faultless performance.

Molly and Megan were fantastic in their portrayal of the star crossed lovers, producing a duet that melted every heart.

Student Aiva delivered a mesmerising stoic performance, with a vocal that could rival those we find in the West End. Also Harley, who could compete with the Stars of Strictly Come Dancing, was sensational.

The production was put together by the school’s drama, dance and music departments, led by Craig Gaffney.



A matinee for the school’s feeder primary schools saw students take centre stage for the first time, with a further two stand-out performances taking place across two days to packed audiences.

Craig Gaffney said: “We’ve had wonderful feedback from parents and attendees about this year’s production. It’s been a real team effort, from those acting and singing centre stage to all those students helping behind the scenes with lighting and costumes. Our girls have really pulled off the Greatest Show!"
