A wonderful weekend, not least one filled with tremendous success for our pupils; all those who entered won their age group/category. Results in so far: James Phelan had a busy weekend at the festival performing a poem, a solo drama piece and an unseen prose reading. In his age group James took first place in both Speech Repertoire, for his performance of The Cow by Roald Dahl and A Game of Chicken by Heather Stephens, and in the Sight Reading class with a piece by Michael Morpurgo. James was also awarded the Randall Bevan Cup for the ‘most outstanding performance’ in Senior Repertoire ahead of those in two older age groups.
Guy Seagers won his category for his performance from the Jungle Book, while Jasper Beaumont and Theo Bimson won under 15s duologue. Year 8 pupils Miranda Woods-Ballard, Jonny Kajoba, Chris Long and Jenny Clare also enjoyed a win for their performance, a scripted version of ‘Ashputtel’ by the Grimms brothers in the category Group Drama Scene. Well done to all!
