BRIDGEWATER Players are presenting What I Did At School Today as their season finale.

Amy Cook, from Fearnhead, is directing the play in her first production at the helm with 11 cast members.

The comedy by John Mee is about a failing school, a head teacher who is only interested in enhancing his CV, and the all-female staff who are more interested in winning over the new supply teacher than inspiring young minds.

Amy, 32, said: “It was a challenge at first to get the play underway but rehearsals have been fantastic and I think I can speak for everyone when I say that we’ve had some amazing laughs along the way.

“The cast I’m using is relatively young in comparison to many previous plays which have been performed by Bridgewater Players.

“I’m hoping this will entice a younger audience and also younger members too.

“So far my biggest challenge has been trying to organise some of the props for the set and working out the way the play will be delivered.

“We’re using the imagination of the audience more than physical things.

“But the highlight has been seeing the cast members so excited about their characters.

“They can’t wait to deliver them to the audiences. It really is humbling to know that your hard work as a director has paid off when everyone comes together to work as one big team to get the play off the ground.

  • What I Did At School Today will be presented at Thelwall Parish Hall from April 19 to 21. Tickets can be bought from Thelwall post office, online at or by calling 755846.
