Drama Extravaganza 2019
Monday 1st July saw our annual Drama Extravaganza, which this year was entitled 'Abandoned'. Set in an abandoned theatre, a group of YR8 explorers searched through the derelict building and found props and pictures from previous shows that had once been put on there. This vision was then brought to life by our individual drama clubs who performed extracts from each of the objects found. Y5&6 resident drama company (B.A.D. Co.) put on an extract from 'Honk', Y7 Performed 'My Fair Lady' and Y8 presented 'Oliver'. The Y9 students were tasked with two pieces; 'The Play That Goes Wrong' as well as a devised piece 'A Box of Tricks'. Upper school students then performed extracts from both 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' and 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time'. Our production club also did a wonderful job designing and creating our wonderful set and props. Such a range of age groups and plays were featured and the Mayor gave a lovely speech at the end, congratulating all students and commenting on the fact that some of the pieces chosen were quite challenging. The evening was extremely successful and enjoyed by a large audience of friends and family. The theme and concept of the evening was highly praised by audience members and the evening was enjoyed by all. Well done to all students from Y5 through to Y13 who were involved in the show.
