Loving the world of performing arts
Georgie O’ Reilly, in Year 12, is no stranger to the world of song and dance, having been involved in dance performances and groups at Richmond School since she started in Year 7. Georgie was a guest speaker at this morning’s Year 7 assembly when she spoke about her many experiences in dance and musical theatre. Georgie is currently studying CTEC Performing Arts and A-level Music and is an active member of the dance, drama and musical groups in school. She was recently cast as Alice, in the school’s forthcoming production of Alice In Wonderland: The Curious Pantomime.
Outside of school, Georgie is a key member of Richmond Operatic Society and will perform the role of Louise in their production of Carousel at the end of May.
The Year 7s were clearly captivated by Georgie as she explained about the many opportunities available in dance through clubs such as Evolution and Breaking Point, as well as the wide range of drama and music groups. In addition, she spoke about the organisations outside of school, such as the local dance schools and the Georgian Theatre. Georgie said that being part of such groups is great for confidence building, mental health and making friends.
