We are delighted to once again invite parents, carers and pupils to attend the prestigious Annual Inter-house Drama Festival on Wednesday 10 July at 6.30pm. The evening competition showcases the three or four finalist houses performing a half hour scripted play which is directed by Sixth Formers and performed by pupils from Years 7-10. The finalists will be announced after school on Monday 8 July.
The plays are The Book Thief (Andrewes), Dr Faustus (Burrows), A Monster Calls (King), Coraline (Otter), 1984 (Ridgeway), Burying Your Brother in the Pavement (Sherborne), Dark Road (Story) and War Horse (Wilson).
As always the standards are high and the competition is fierce. This year we are very pleased to welcome actor and ex pupil Romina Hytten to be our guest adjudicator for the evening, who will have the difficult decision of awarding the Shippam Trophy for the best House play. We will also be presenting the Silver Jubilee Award for the most Outstanding Contribution to House Drama and Tech of the Year.
Tickets are £5 (£3 concessions) and will be available through Parentmail shortly. Tickets will also be available on the evening.
We hope that you will be able to join us.
Mrs N Furnell, Team Leader Drama
