What a start to the year!

This hardworking group of GCSE Drama students did the school proud as they bravely took centre stage for the opening show of the season. The performance which was based around an amateur dramatics society's shoddy performance of a Murder Mystery play, was anything but shoddy! I promise you, all technical hitches were part of the show and executed to perfection! The students, who self directed the play, started rehearsals at the end of the last school year. They rehearsed in their own time and only required technical assistance from the drama department. A special thanks to Mr Calder and Dominic for giving up their time on a weekend to build their set. 'Murder at Checkmate Manor' was performed over two nights, and word obviously got out because the second night was a sellout, with a record number of 17 members of staff turning out for the show! A massive thank you and well done to all involved. It was a fantastic start to the year, we couldn't have asked for a better one!
