A unique opportunity

Hot off the press from the Drama Department is the news that Dauntsey’s will stage a production of Matthew Bourne’s dance production, ‘Lord of the Flies’, based on the novel by William Golding, with music by Terry Davies. This has been made possible by special arrangement with Re:Bourne & New Adventures.

This amazing show, featuring only boy dancers, will be adapted from the original 2014 production by Matthew Bourne and Scott Ambler. Dauntsey’s will work closely with New Adventures associate director Adam Galbraith from now until early July to stage this ground-breaking production.

Rikki Jackson, Director of Drama is thrilled to have been granted this unique opportunity by Matthew Bourne and his company and has confirmed that the show will form the centerpiece of Dauntsey’s first ever Arts Festival which will be held at the end of the Summer term.

Matthew Bourne and his company New Adventures have over the last 25 years changed the landscape of British dance with their iconic productions that include Nutcracker!, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake.
