A year of hard work comes to fruition in June when the Theatre and Drama students present their work at the Lansdowne Theatre Evening. The event makes creative use of our large Hall which is equipped with blackout curtains, lighting rigs and a sound mixing desk which together produce an evening of outstanding drama. The event, one of the highlights of the College year, is always well-attended by the parents and families of the performers, members of staff and fellow students. Year after year, the creativity of the work is astounding and the way drama builds teamwork and self-confidence among GCSE and A-level students regularly impresses members of the audience.
Recent productions have included a powerful exploration of the effects of violence on young lives, and an extraordinary adaptation of the Roald Dahl story, A Fine Son, which ingeniously combined film footage, lighting and sound effects to reimagine the birth of Hitler.
