Company Description

Theatre Arts Academy, based in Essex, provide performance opportunities for young people throughout the year & are delighted to be returning to Edinburgh this year with this fabulous new musical.

Production Description

The status quo at Grovewood School for Young Ladies is disrupted when scholarship girl Maisy Martin arrives, much to the disgust of her snooty classmates. She may be an absolute whizz at hockey but will she ever be accepted? Will she solve the mystery of the school treasure? Will the tiresome boys from the Digby Grammar School ever leave her alone? This quintessentially English new musical, packed full of catchy songs, jolly good fun and a light-hearted poke at the upper classes, is guaranteed to entertain all the family and send you home singing.

'3 Cheers for Maisy'

 

'3 Cheers for Maisy'

What a lively cheery show for a chilly rainy evening. A big young company does a rum job of this crisp and funny satire on the goings-on in an English girls' school of the 1920's. Music, singing, choreography are well-done and faultlessly timed. The cast enjoyed playing the exaggerated characters: the pompous headmistress, the games mistress (shades of St. Trinian's), the bad girls and good ones, and the feckless boys .... especially amusing when exchanging their knowledge (!) of girls. Maisy as the new scholarship girl plays a calm part in the jolly-hockeysticks life of the school while two bad girls who 'hate the working class' plot to get her expelled. Meanwhile, the school is threatened with closure, and with many twists of the plot, Maisy's cleverness and her forgiving nature saves the school and exposes the baddies......who are played very well. The audience thoroughly enjoyed this production. Supah show, gels and (gasp) boys.
