‘The windows shone. A green creeper climbed almost to the roof. It looked like an old-time castle. “My school!” thought Darrell, and a little warm feeling came into her heart. “How lucky I am to be going to Malory Towers!”’
Darrell Rivers is starting school with an eager mind and fierce heart. Unfortunately, she also has a quick temper! Can she learn to tolerate the infuriating Gwendoline Lacey, or value the kind-hearted Sally Hope? Can she save the school play and rescue terrified Mary Lou from the grip of a raging storm? If she can do these things anywhere, she will do them at Malory Towers!
Nostalgic, naughty and perfect for now, Malory Towers is the original ‘girl power’ story. Expect high jinks, high drama and high spirits, all set to sensational live music and breath-taking animation. This is a show for girls, boys and all of us grown-up children who still dream of midnight feasts and Cornish clifftops.
