Burford School has a long history of staging first-class productions.
Every year we put on either a musical theatre production or a play and biennially there is a dedicated play performed exclusively by students in Years 7 to 9. Recent productions have included ‘Les Misérables’, ‘Beauty and the Beast’, ‘Once Upon A Time’, ‘Oliver!’, ‘The 39 Steps’, ‘Arabian Nights’ and 'Play On...'.
Through these productions, we aim to stimulate and challenge our students and provide the opportunity for them to develop new skills and experience in all aspects of performance and theatre work, whether on stage or in a technical support role.
Many Old Burfordians look back on their involvement in our outstanding productions as one of the many highlights of their time at Burford School.
