The major event in the Drama calendar for the Summer Term should be the summer production which was, of course, unable to take place in 2020.
However, this past summer our Drama and Music Departments were determined to get audiences back in Greeker and collaborated on an original production. Conceived by Director of Drama, Nic Saunders with a script written by the pupils themselves, The Great Big Talent Show featured almost fifty pupil performers.
Both departments worked hard to audition, recruit and rehearse the performers, while adhering to social distancing rules and pupil bubbles. The production featured a selection of songs from rock and pop to musical theatre and Nic Saunders worked with a small group of pupils to devise and write a script that seamlessly linked them all together into one cohesive show.
A band consisting largely of professional visiting music teachers was put together and the show, with its witty dialogue and powerful performances, provided some joy and entertainment for pupils and staff at the College after a difficult year.
