Drama Club

 

“After last week’s performances, Drama Club has been completed for the academic year, and what a memorable week it was. Both performance nights were brilliant. 

When any production comes to an end, I try to spend some time reflecting on the process, remembering how it all began, trying to piece together the moments that got us to here. And this is something I have found myself doing a lot of this week. It has been a journey. A journey where the cast and I have pushed ourselves creatively, physically and intellectually - and in doing so they have re-told one of Shakespeare's best. In a week that the world remembered that brilliant playwright for all his great works, I think it is fair to say that he would be proud of what they have produced over the past two nights, but also the work that got them here. I know I am proud of them all.

There are times, during this process, where I have forgotten how young these actors are, and it’s an important point when you consider the level of performance that this company have produced – they have shown great bravery, a huge desire and true discipline. Thank you for all your efforts over these last months, gentlemen. I hope you enjoyed the journey.

There have been a number of adults who have supported them in this production. The members of staff, whose help I have greatly appreciated - from the stage being built, to getting messages home to parents. Without them it would have not been possible. To the parents, who I know have sat with their sons and run lines. Who have taxied the boys to and from rehearsals. Who have made sure they have been fed and watered. Who have supported them during those days when they have not felt their best, and who celebrated with them at every opportunity.

My experiences have taught me how powerful Drama can be on nights like this – it is a special night, it is your night, and long after you leave this place, these memories will remain. Enjoy them. Well done again."
