RYE College mounted it’s first Drama Festival last week.
During this two day festival, scenes from plays such as Gregory’s Girl by Bill Forsyth, Too Much Punch for Judy by Mark Wheeler and Humbleboy by Charlotte Jones were performed with skill and polish by students, both to their peers during the day and to family and friends in the evenings.
The audience were hugely entertained by the fantastic comic performances of The Perils of Pauline, Monach and The Musicians and impressed with the naturalistic acting of The Terrible Fate of Humpty Dumpty by David Calcutt and Shut Up by Andrew Payne.
The festival was run by the GCSE Performing Arts students who are assessed on their professional conduct in front of house and backstage roles. It was a culmination of work created in class and extracurricular clubs. Head of Drama, Sarah Wall, would especially like to thank Entertainment Workshop for doing the sound and lighting and the P.T.A. for organising the refreshments.
