Year 9&10 Letter Home - Sister Act


RE: Sister Act The Musical – Y9/Y10 Theatre Trip 

  Dear Parent / Guardian,           


Following on from our recent trips to see Shrek The Musical & Hamilton, I am delighted to announce that we have arranged another opportunity for our Newman College pupils to watch a musical at the theatre.

On Thursday 18th July we will be visiting Blackpool Opera House to watch the stage musical of Sister Act. This show is a musical theatre adaptation of the hit 1992 movie that many pupils may have seen. The trip is open to any pupil in Year 9 and Year 10, the timings for which can be seen below:


   11:45  - Depart from Newman College on coach

c.13:15 - Arrive at Blackpool Opera House and eat packed lunch

   14:30 - Show starts

   17:00 - Show ends

c.17:30 - Depart from Blackpool Opera House on coach

c.19:00 - Arrive back at Newman College

   (Pupils will message you when we are almost back to school & updates will be posted on X, formerly Twitter)


More information will follow nearer the trip date but please be aware that attending this trip will mean that pupils clearly won’t be back in time for the school buses, and therefore you must make travel arrangements to get them home upon our return to Newman College. In addition to this, pupils will miss the college lunch break. Therefore, they will need to bring a packed lunch with them, to eat upon arrival in Blackpool. Pupils on Free School Meals will be given a grab-bag, packed lunch to take with them.


There are only 50 places available for this trip and will cost a contribution of £35 per pupil.

If you would like to secure a place for your child on this trip, then we are asking for the £35 payment to be made via ParentPay. ParentPay for this event will go live at 12:30 on Thursday 9th May. Places will be filled on a first come, first served basis and so I would highly recommend putting this time in your diary, as we expect places on the trip to be in high demand. Previous trips have sold out in a matter of minutes, so please be aware of this date and time to try and avoid disappointment.


This is an excellent opportunity for our pupils to visit a theatre, particularly those who have a keen interest in the performing arts. I am sure it will be an extremely enjoyable experience for all involved. If you have any further questions about this trip then please do get in contact with me on the number, below.



Yours faithfully


Mr M Edwards, Curriculum Leader - Music
