This term we are working towards the Drama Cups. Students perform monologues or duologues for industry professionals (casting directors, actors, directors and drama practitioners) and are given individual feedback. The judges choose their ‘winnners’ and trophies are presented. All pupils under 18 are awarded with a certificate to add to their record of achievment.
We have limited places for LAMDA tuition and exam entry. Contact Mel direct for details. Last term Abi Dyson and Susannah Gilchrist were both awarded DISTINCTIONS for Gold Medal level!
