The Gruffalo Innit - June 2015

On Wednesday 17th and Thursday 18th of June 2015 Meadow High school Students performed an exciting action filled performance of ‘The Gruffalo Init!’

This edgy hip-hop musical was set in Hilingdon and was inspired by the children’s classic ‘The Gruffalo’. Along with the support of Dance Club, Drama club pupils wrote the script, rap lyrics and created their own dance routines. They also selected a wide range of well known songs for the group and solo voice performances. 

During the story we met the legendary dance gangs: The Feltham Foxes, The Uxbridge Owls and The Slough Snakes. We then follow the Mouse on his journey through Uxbridge where he meets the Gruffalo and has a break down/dance off, to see who is the best in the street.   Although the Gruffalo at first seems top, the Mouse eventually proved to all the gangs that he has the best moves!
