GCSE Drama group take the stage as part of examination process
8th May 2017

Drama pupils at Rydal Penrhos have been praised for their efforts in a pair of examination performances.

The GCSE group performed in-front of an audience at the Rick Maple Drama Studio over two nights on Thursday, April 27 and Friday 28, and their respective pieces were also filmed for the benefit of assessors marking their finished product.

Ruby James and Heidi Jack gave two outstanding performances in their scene from a Streetcar named Desire, while Mark Hill and Grace Ormerod gave two hilarious efforts from their Steetcar Named Desire sketch.

The duo of Sean Hughes and Ryan Roche gelled together effortlessly in their dark portrayal of Pinter's The Hothouse, with Miles Poller and Jenny Blackman also caught the eye with their performance in a scene from Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

The performances have been the result of weeks of planning and preparation, with the pupils taking part in day-long rehearsals under the guidance of Head of English and Drama Leah Crimes.

Headmaster Simon Smith, who also attended the event, said: “A huge Bravo goes to everyone in the department, including the actors, the lighting and to their Director Mrs Crimes, who is their mentor and biggest fan.

“The performances were moving, funny and enthralling and they can all be very proud of their efforts.”
