Bishop Luffa’s prestigious House 戏剧 Festival was a huge success again this year with a very high standard of work achieved 通过 the four finalists, 安德鲁斯 House with The Book Thief, 舍伯恩 House with Burying your Brother in the Pavement, 国王 House with A Monster Calls, and 故事 House with Dark Road.
The Festival was a showcase of performance work with Sixth Formers directing students from Years 7-10 in a half hour play as part of a competition judged by a theatre industry professional actor and ex-pupil Romina Hytten. Her feedback recognised the very high standard of performance work achieved 通过 all finalists.
The overall winner was 国王 House with A Monster Calls, a powerful and compelling drama told through puppetry and ensemble work.
Other awards on the evening were given to Alfie Ayling (10Wilson) from 威尔逊’s House Play, 战马 who won the Silver Jubilee Award for the Most Original Contribution to House 戏剧 for his phenomenal performance and Charlie Harvey (9獭) who won Tech of the Year for his commitment to managing the lighting and sound for the Festival.
It was an electric evening and a wonderful celebration of Bishop Luffa 戏剧 with a huge response from the audience and high tension during the judge’s feedback at the end.
