On 8th of July, 2008 we put together our end of term show case at the Commemoration Hall. It contained a piece of work that had been devised by a couple of our members who put it forward for production to try something from the other side of the stage.
Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone (abridged)
directed by Laura Hammond and Michael Hudson
Devised by Laura and Michael, this was one of the pieces of theatre when we give our members the chance to put together their own work and show what they can do. It told in simple form, over about 15 minutes, the story of the famous boy wizards’ first adventure at Hogwarts.
Directed by Beryl-Anne Whitehead and Jess Sawyer (formerly Hooker)
Unhand me Squire!
Directed by Dominic Whitehead and Graeme Hammond
Unhand me Squire is a medieval story about a landlord who decides he wants the daughter of one his peasants as payment for rent that he can’t pay. Thankfully his plans are thwarted by the pleasant – but not too bright – peasant boy who goes away to make good and by amazing coincidence returns just in time!
