Drama News 2010

Drama Department

There have been several enjoyable theatre trips to see a diverse range of productions such as the West End hit 'Enron' at the Bath Theatre Royal, Trestle's physical interpretation of an African story 'Burn My Heart' at the Salisbury Arts Centre and the Elizabethan play 'The Picture' at the Salisbury Playhouse.

The Year 11 Drama students received very positive feedback when they took their Theatre-In-Education projects into local primary schools and used Drama as a tool to teach the children about moral issues such as sharing and friendship and topics such as 'earthquakes' studied in their class.

The Drama prefects have been working hard with members of the Lower school Drama Club in preparing a showcase of work entitled 'The Past, Present and Future of Theatre'. Many students will perform for the first time at South Wilts during the final days of term for friends and family.

Also in the last week we have a visiting Theatre-In-Education group from Salisbury College presenting a piece of work on behaviour and consequences to the Year 10 Drama students, which will hopefully give them some ideas for their own projects next year.

Well done to all those talented actors and musicians who took part in the BWS/SWGS production of Brecht's 'Caucasian Chalk Circle'. The play was incredibly accessible, comic and dynamic and the cast really enjoyed the ensemble acting style. (Miss Atherton) 

 Visit to 'A Voyage Round My Father' at Salisbury Playhouse

The winners of the Year 8 drama competition, held in the last week of the summer term, were lucky enough to be offered the prize of tickets to see 'A Voyage Round My Father' at Salisbury Playhouse on 8th September.

We all thoroughly enjoyed the luxury of sitting in the best seats in the house and watching John Mortimer's thoughtful, funny and moving autobiographical play.

Thanks go to Mark Powell and the Playhouse for inspiring the girls in the workshops that preceded the drama competition, and for providing such a wonderful prize. (Mrs Coundley)
