Our Christmas play with a twist – The Xmas Factor – was performed by the young people of Holly Trees last week. Pupils’ friends and family, along with staff from across the school, were dazzled with an X-Factor style show, starring traditional and popular Christmas characters.
In the show, a panel of judges (including Elsa, Elf, Mrs. Grinch and her moody husband, The Grinch) were given the task of deciding their favourite performers. The Angels, the Shepherds and the Wise Men sang their chosen songs in the hope of being crowned the Xmas Factor champion.
Judge Elsa, a character from the Disney film Frozen, attempted to steal the show with an impromptu performance of ‘Let it Go’. In the Christmas spirit, the competition was announced a draw before everyone got up on stage to sing for one last song together.
Everyone who saw the play agreed it was fantastic, and we’d like to extend our praise to all the young people of Holly Trees who worked so hard to make it a memorable, dazzling and festive experience.
