The boys from Mitre Fleur de Lys House created an evening of hilarity and sheer talent, all for charity on Saturday night.
The annual MAD night is held to raise funds for Donna’s Dream House. Since 2008, MF House has raised over £28,000 for the Blackpool based charity and we hope after this year’s hugely popular event, to reach the grand total of £30,000.
The night requires hours of preparation around the already full academic and activity schedule of each MF student. From the first day of term in September to moments before the curtains open on show night, every MF boy works passionately to perfect their performances.
We have to thank Year 13 student, Billy Hoggmascall, for producing and creating such a wonderful show of music, comedy and dance, all interspersed with all our favourite bad jokes. Billy along with his fellow housemates presented the acts which included a couple of ‘all house’ numbers, solos and group pieces. Year 13 student Travis Zhao wowed the 300 strong crowd with his performance of ‘This Town’ by Niall Horan, Year 13 Matthew Peill, sang ‘Maria’ from the musical West Side Story, and Billy had everyone laughing rather disturbingly at his rendition of ‘Poisoning Pigeons in the Park’ by Tom Lehrer.
Huge congratulations to all the boys, Houseparents and tutors of MF for a wonderful show. Thank you to Miss Cath for her hours spent trying to teach the boys how to dance, Mr Andy Mitchell for assisting with presenting, and MF’s Housekeeper, Val, for her continued support and contribution to the House.
Thank you to Nicky Chong and Danil Aleinikov for the photos.
