For the first time, Verulam had a school production which was solely for the year 7 students. Year 7’s were invited to audition for the Christmas show shortly before the half term, and were cast in the Christmas Pantomime. Students then spent their Wednesday after school, and some lunch hours, rehearsing for the 90 minute show. ‘Robin Hood and the King’s Gold’ was performed to parents and guests on Friday the 6th of December.
Students have loved being part of the process, not just acting, but some were working behind stage and in a lighting or sound capacity. We encourage all the boys to get involved and explore the technical aspects of drama in order to broaden their involvement in school shows.
