Lower school pupils from across the Foundation shone in an outstanding drama performance this month.
The three-night run in Loughborough High School’s drama studio boasted an incredible performance based on Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes, with original songs written by Year 10 pupil David to accompany the show.
David said: “I loved working on Revolting Rhymes this year. I have loved having an open environment to explore my passion for writing and having such a strong cast to work with. This has been a truly rewarding experience, and has set my future in stone, having improved my passion for drama and song writing.”
The performance was produced as part of a huge team effort; a cast of 42 who all helped add detail to the script, supported by the Drama department, with a simple yet beautiful set based on Roald Dahl’s famous writing shed, enhanced by farm chic costumes with a cartoon twist! A special thanks to the Loughborough Schools Foundation catering department who served drinks to the audience in glorious sunshine after the show.
Pupils from Years 7 and 8 from Loughborough High School, Loughborough Amherst School and Loughborough Grammar School all gave dazzling performances and two boys from Loughborough Grammar School managed the sound and lighting equipment.
