The Shot Heard ‘round The World is the culmination of the creative efforts of three extremely talented Upper Sixth Students at Burgess Hill School for Girls – Amy Scott, Beth King and Lily Williams. Tickets completely sold out with over 1,400 people flocking to see this outstanding show over four performances and a dress rehearsal.

Attended by VIPs from the world of theatre and entertainment, Burgess Hill Town Mayor, local press and a representative from the Royal British Legion, The Shot Heard ’round The World was the first production in the new Croft II Performance, Drama and Music complex at the school, and provided a fitting launch event for the enhanced facilities completed just a few weeks ago.
