    Junior School Play 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' by Oscar Wilde - Wed 29th June, Thurs 30th June, Fri 1st July (Ashton Theatre)


    "What the gods give, they quickly take away. The roses will be as red next June as they are now; the leaves fall and are green again - but we never get back our youth."

    In a society obsessed with appearances, a boy makes a wish to remain young forever. As he throws himself into a life of hedonism and debauchery, his face remains unchanged - and the world remains besotted.

    Oscar Wilde's biting satire of society's superficiality remains as relevant today as in 1895.

    Performances in the Ashton Theatre are at 6.30pm on Wednesday 29th June and Friday 1st July and at 7.30pm on Thursday 30th June.

    Tickets are free, available from Dawn Dunn in Reception: dldunn@shrewsbury.org.uk 01743 280500.

    A Concert of Popular Music: 'Rock on the Common' (Marquee)

    An evening of the very best of Shrewsbury musical talent, the concert is both directed and performed by our own singers and instrumentalists, performing some great covers as well as their own songs too.

    Expect to see School bands The Slow City, the Viceroys, the Six Severns and the Rolling Shones, which have all featured in this year's Open Mic Nights.

    Please feel free to bring along your own seating and picnics, from 6.30pm onwards.  Admission is free, but please give generously to the pupils' chosen charities. There will be a Charities Committee stall within the marquee selling food and drink to both pupils and parents.

    Please note that the concert will start at 7.45pm, not at 8pm as advertised in the Salopian Week brochure.

    The Shrewsbury School Parents' Association will be operating a cash bar throughout the evening from 6.30pm, serving a range of wines, beers, and crisps.
