School Pantomime 2016

From Phil Harding

School Pantomime 2016
Please see letter below from the School, inviting Old Harveians to this year’s Panto.As you can see from the letter, the Panto has been written by Owen Smith, a Year 13 pupil, who is also directing it. He is the son of an Old Harveian, Tim Smith.

Dear Gentlemen

It is with great delight that I invite you to our school pantomime which, once again, sees a first in our school’s history. This year’s pantomime has not only been written by one of our very own Year 13 pupils, Owen Smith, but is also being directed by him too. The Harvey Grammar School Pantomime is a well-established highlight in the annual school calendar and it is with great pride that I write to inform you that the 2016 pantomime, ‘The Giant with the Four Golden Hairs’, really is 100% Harvey boys. Along with the giant, we will see our hero Jacob, his mother, the evil King, Queen, Princess, the Knights, the robbers and the entire chorus sing, dance and of course fill your evening full of fun panto jokes. ‘Oh no they won’t, Oh yes they will!’

On behalf of the cast, I would like to invite you to this very magical evening which promises to be full of laughter and excitement. There will be two performances of ‘The Giant with the Four Golden Hairs’, one on Thursday 8th December and the other on Friday 9th December, both starting at 6.30pm in the School Hall. Raffle tickets will be available to purchase on the evening and the raffle will be held during the interval. Refreshments will also be available to purchase during the interval.

Ticket prices are as follows:

 Adult £5.00

 3-11 year olds £3.00

 Under 3s Free

 Family tickets (2 adults & 2 children) £12.00

Not only will you enjoy laughing out loud for two fun filled hours, the cast and technical team deserve to show their hard work and effort to an appreciative and enthusiastic audience.

Both cast and technical team have been working very hard, rehearsing for four hours every week, to bring this extremely funny pantomime to you. We hope that you are able to attend and look forward to seeing you in December.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Rebecca Rogers

Head of Drama

From Phil Harding…

First a thank you to those who have already booked for the Annual Dinner on 03 Dec. Bookings are being received steadily and its good to see that payment by Bank transfer is proving popular.

As always, the OHA extends an invitation not just to OHA members but to old boys in the Linkedin and Facebook groups, members of the OHA website and to all Old Harveians. In recent years attendees have ranged from 18 to 102 years of age.

We are always particularly keen to see those who joined or left the school 50 or 25 years ago. We would also very much like to see those who left 5 years ago in 2011. Join us and bring us up to date on your University, college, internship, apprenticeship, other training, career, etc.

The Dinner is always a great opportunity to catch up with old friends in a familiar setting. Get a class or year group reunion together. This is also probably the last chance to see the old gym, a building with great memories for most old boys, as it is being demolished and replaced in summer 2017.

Please remember that places are limited so get your booking in as soon as possible. For more information contact Phil phil@ksfa.freeserve.co.uk. For Menu and Booking Form  dinner-notice-dec-2016
