Pupils Take to the Stage
Senior School Drama pupils take LAMDA exams - and look ahead to this week's production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.
Senior School Drama pupils took their London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA) exams in Cambridge this weekend.
LAMDA classes, which are part of our extra-curricular programme, take place after school. They are taught by external Drama teachers, who offer pupils the opportunity to develop their skills in 'Acting', 'Devising', and 'Speaking Verse and Prose', working individually or in a group.
Course tutor Ms Beau Roberts said: “LAMDA classes and exams challenge talented actors and encourage less confident performers, unlocking the imagination and creative thinking. Students develop communication skills, refine their performance skills, and build self-esteem whilst gaining a nationally recognised qualification.”
Fingers crossed for good results all round for Eva D, Heather S, Georgie A, Eloise P, Flora M, Tilly Y, Gracie L and Vrinda R!
In the meantime, we’re looking forward to seeing some of these pupils, and many others, in three (sold out) performances of this year’s School production – Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street on the 8th, 9th and 10th December. The thrilling and darkly comic tale features some unforgettable characters and songs, and a plot with many twists and turns.
