Drama, Drama, Drama at the House Drama Competition
The stimulus for the House Drama competition was taken from Andy Leek’s public art project “Notes for Strangers” which are dotted around London. With only a limited amount of time to write, direct and produce their pieces, our dramatists put on an evening of fantastic entertainment. The adjudicator, Jason Homeward, a graduate from The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, has appeared in The Curse of Robert the Doll (feature film), As You Like It (Birmingham Hippodrome Theatre) and City of Angel (The Crescent Theatre). Jason declared “there is an awful lot of talent in this room.”
In an evening of high drama, congratulations go to Ethan Hayes who was given Best Actor for his brilliant performance and excellence in maintaining the character in the Beevor’s production of Today is once in a Lifetime. The Best Piece award also went to Beevor’s which grabbed the audience from the start by its bold entrance. Jolie Slater and Molly Goldingham were the joint winners of the Best Director in the Paull’s production of Five Stages of …shhh with its “insane” ensemble and solid work as a group.
Well done to everyone for working so hard to put on some brilliant show pieces, they should all be congratulated.
