SKISS organises an annual school-wide production. We are pleased to share the write-up and some pictures from our two most recent productions Addam's Family and Mary Poppins. Enjoy!
ADDAM'S FAMILY (JULY 2019)
This year’s production, “The Addams Family”, created a huge impact on me and I’m sure, many others too. I was given the wonderful opportunity to play Wednesday Addams, a character full of wit and dark humour, and I am forever grateful to have been able to embody her and sing all the addictive songs from the play. It was an honour to be able to act on stage with my friends and fellow castmates, savouring every minute of it until it ended.
Working alongside the fantastic teachers helped to mould us into the best actors we could be. It was an absolute privilege. We, the cast, were showered with unconditional encouragement and support which thus, greatly helped conjure up the magnificent performances. We couldn’t have done it without them, and appreciate them so much for their time and attention they put into this year’s production.

MARY POPPINS (JULY 2018)
The latest production at SKIS features Mary Poppins, an all-time favourite, which filled the air with warm nostalgia. Following the tales of London’s favourite nanny and chimney sweep, the audience was swept away by the students’ performance.
This story has delighted children and families for many years either as a book, a film or a stage production. Its setting in an English family in London is appropriate for our students who are studying the National Curriculum of England and therefore absorbing a lot about the culture and history of the country. The songs are real classics and well-known to everyone but are actually quite complicated to learn and perform, as is the music. It is a technically complex show to stage; the students and teachers have worked incredibly hard to perform to a high standard.
It was definitely supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
