Performing Arts Take Centre Stage

Last Wednesday, our school theatre was alight with talent as our Performing Arts Platform Event took centre stage.

This is a popular and well-supported event, providing pupils with the opportunity to showcase their talents in drama, dance and music.

The evening started with a powerful display of physical theatre exploration, performed by a collection of Fourth Form GCSE drama pupils.

Up next, with an array of monologues, were our speech and drama candidates, all of whom gained distinctions in their LAMDA exams last term.

Hattie Lindsey-Coombs danced a devised piece that she has been developing in her GCSE dance class, and was accompanied by Will Smale and Karen Paul who performed a beautiful harmony.

Hattie also danced with Natasha Carter – the pair delivering a dynamic duet that was truly engaging to watch.

Performers also include Olly Baines, who, together with Will Smale, gave us some delightful musical interludes, before the drama club delivered a terrifying extract from A Woman in Black.

Commenting, Head of Drama, Harriet Agg-Manning said:

“King’s has always enjoyed huge successes in the performing arts. Events such as this demonstrate the strength of our drama, music and dance departments, as well as the individual and collective talents of our pupils, who never cease to amaze me on how natural they are on stage.”
