The John Jenkins Hall has been once again alive this week, with the sounds of the Junior Production blasting out Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper and Star Wars into the corridors of the main school. This year's offering, Roal Dahl's FANTASTIC MR FOX—a cartoony short story about three horrid farmers who try to catch and kill a crafty fox who continues to steal their chickens, ducks, geese and cider! The production is a riot from start to finish and once again is a wonderful example of the team spirit and high standards drama maintains at the school.
The cast are universally strong as the disgusting farmers and the various woodland creatures, and the crew have once again outdone themselves building the three-level set from scratch under the design and direction of Director of Drama, Mr Kavanagh. Special mention must also go to Mrs. Straw for her tireless work on the handmade costumes, and to Miss Horton, Miss Banner and Mr Elwood for their continued help and support.
For some time, with theatres closing and with students isolating from the cast, it looked as though the production might not go ahead, but thanks to the hard work of the team the production was able to be fully realised and has played to modest, covid-safe audiences. Here's to many more!
