The school is proud to report that another of our students has recently performed in a professional stage production. Adam Tyerman in Year 7 took on the role of Mamillius in Shakespeare's 'The Winter's Tale" at the Octagon Theatre.

Adam reports that he found the role 'great fun' and he really enjoyed working with a team of professional actors. The role required Adam to interact and react with the main players. He had to learn all the monologues of all the lead actors in order to ensure his timings were accurate and effective in creating a smooth performance. Adam dedicated his free time to attending rehearsals.

David Thacker, director of the production, contacted school to share how impressed he was with Adam's performance. David writes, "I'd like to share with you, and the staff that teach Adam, how admirably Adam conducted himself at every stage of the process. He was diligent, courteous, respectful and considerate. He tackled the task of seeking to express this beautiful and complex play with great dedication. He worked extremely well with the 15 professional actors and was very popular with them and the technical staff. Adam is a credit to his family and to his school."

In recognition of Adam's outstanding work, Adam has been presented with a special Headteacher's award in the Year 7 assembly.

Adam reports that it his ambition to further his acting potential and possibly pursue it as a career. He is considering auditioning for a part in the Octagon Theatre's adaptation of Anne Bronte's book 'The Tenant of Wildfell Hall' in March 2017.

The school is very proud of Adam, and we wish him every success in his future drama productions.
