Performing Arts Day 2016
Date posted: 07/11/16
This year’s theme came from a quote from Edgar Allen Poe “Is all that we see or seem, but a dream within a dream?”
Each of the 4 houses (Thomas, Milton, Yeats & Burns) were given a brief in September; to create a 30 minute Performance including elements of music, acting, dance and design. Directors for each house from the Lower Sixth, had 3 weeks to audition, cast, rehearse, choreograph, design an innovative “programme”, create costume, design lighting, sound and projections for their performances on Tuesday 19th October. And then perform in front of the whole school and a panel of adjudicators. This year our adjudicators were Stevie Lee (film producer and managing director or Runaway Fridge Films), actress Fiona O’Shaughnessy and old-girl and actress Phao Wheatley.
A fantastic day highlighting the talent and creative teamwork within the entire Senior School. Congratulations to all who participated and to the award winners. Congratulations to Milton, who won the event.
