1927 - Daisy Meredith is the first scholarship girl taken from an elementary school to be granted access to the hallowed halls of the prestigious Grangewood School for Young Ladies. Enthusiastic and plucky to the last, Daisy finds herself struggling against unspeakable snobs Sybil Burlington and Monica Smithers, who concoct ghastly schemes to get her expelled. Can Daisy work out the mysterious clues and save the school from closure? What secrets does the enigmatic Mr Scoblowski hide?
This riotous and affectionate pastiche of a classic girls’ school story was a huge West End hit and won the Olivier Award and Drama Theatre Award for Best Comedy when first produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber in 1983.
The first graduating year of GSA’s new BA Actor-Musician course present this production full of quirky characters, splendid scrapes and fabulous friends.
