Principal’s Message

Week beginning 16th January 2017 (1/15/2017)

‘Back to the Eighties’ comes to Bishop Walsh! 

It is with great pleasure that the Performing Arts Department of Bishop Walsh presents ‘Back to the Eighties’.  From the era that brought the world The Rubik’s Cube, Max Headroom and The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comes this “totally awesome” musical in the style of movies such as Back To The Future, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Karate Kid and The Wedding Singer.   Join the graduating class of William Ocean High School as they live through their final senior year – as they experience the fun, the heartbreak, the loves and the loneliness of growing up…. all set to the biggest hits of the 80’s!!

Our last EIGHT school musicals (Jesus Christ Superstar!, Footloose, We Will Rock You, Guys and Dolls, High School Musical, Our House, West Side Story and Annie) have come in the top three for the best school musical in the annual Birmingham wide competition.  Indeed Annie won first place last year from the 55 schools entered this competition across Birmingham.  This year the show is produced by Miss Byrne and Mrs Priestnall and has over 100 pupils in the cast.  ‘Back to the Eighties’ runs from Wednesday 8th February 2017 – Saturday 11th February 2017 (all at 7.00pm in our School Theatre).
