Monday 1st February is the 7th Secondary Drama Showcase which is a glorious opportunity to share and celebrate the creativity and energy that resides in Drama Departments across the county on the Hall For Cornwall stage.
The matinee is at 2pm and the evening performance is at 7.30pm.
Tickets available on the door and at www.hallforcornwall.co.uk
This year is even more special as a collaboration with the Cornwall Record Office has enabled us to commission four new plays especially for this event for young performers and inspired by their heritage. Most of the young people have had a chance to visit the archive and strong room, to handle some very old and precious documents including those that inspired their plays.
We are very grateful to the staff at Cornwall Record Office, in particular Chloe Phillips, for making us so welcome and for sharing this rich resource with both the writers and the students. It has been a delight to work with such talented playwrights including Charlotte Bister and Daniel Richards, Jethro Compton, Ellen Moule and Elaine Ruth White. They have all created work that is thoughtful, playful and responded brilliantly to the brief ‘write a 10 minute piece for a cast of 10 to 20 performers’. We know that drama teachers and students have responded with enormous imagination to the plays and we hope that you as an audience will respond with due enthusiasm to these ‘World Premiers’.
