Homebuilder plays role behind the scenes in college play - web

Pupils at Horizon Community College in Barnsley staged a performance of Little Shop of Horrors with the help of our £500 cash boost.

The donation funded materials for students to build their own set for the show, which was held in the school’s theatre.

Suzy Dix, community enterprise coordinator at Horizon Community College, says: “Taylor Wimpey’s donation contributed greatly towards the cost of the show, meaning we could put on an even better musical this year with a fantastic set.

“Pupils were able to build the set from scratch, which allowed them to put their creative skills to the test and learn more about what’s involved in set production.”

The school’s performance of Little Shop of Horrors involved 100 pupils aged between 11 and 15, including backstage helpers and cast members.

Our Kingstone Grange development is located near to Horizon Community College, and our donation is part of a long-standing partnership with the school. 

Anne Bagshaw, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire, comments: “Having worked in the area for a long time, we’re aware of the fantastic drama programme at Horizon and we’re thrilled to support its latest production.

“Well done to everyone involved in the show, including those who created the set, worked backstage or performed the musical itself.”

There’s currently a selection of three and four-bedroom homes available at Kingstone Grange.
