St Andrew's acting awards

Our entry at the St Andrew's drama festival, Chekhov's A Marriage Proposal, went down very well on Wednesday night. The adjudicator commented on the 'three very good performances' by our actors Ben Russell, Ben Armstrong and Ellie Russell, and the 'very intelligent direction' by Ronan Swift. And last night at the awards ceremony, great news came that Ben Russell was Best Actor at the festival (he was also a superb Malvolio in our Shakespeare Society production of Twelfth Night in November), and Ellie Russell runner-up as Best Actress. We hope to put on the production again in school after the exams, particularly since many missed it due to sickness.

Half-term starts today, and term resumes on Monday 26th February, when posting on this site will also resume.
