Christ College Brecon’s annual House Speech and Drama Festival 2019 took place on Thursday 28th March.
The event showcased the abundance of talent we have in acting at KS3-KS5 at Christ College. Alway House, de Winton House, Donaldson’s House, Orchard House, School House and St David’s each presented four pieces, including a monologue, duologue, ensemble poem and a set piece from Blood Brothers. Each performance was assessed by an independent judge, Craig Nash, against a set criteria. Winners were awarded over a variety of categories, following adjudication.
Many thanks to our adjudicator Craig Nash, an acting graduate from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. As a professional actor some of Craig’s acting credits include: The Dreamers directed by Jean Pierre van Der Spuy/Lee Proud at Abbey Road Studios and The UK Tour of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, directed by Bill Kenwright.
Pupils acting abilities were fantastic. Many congratulations to this year’s House Speech and Drama Festival 2019 winners Orchard House for 1st place.
Well done to Donaldson’s House who took 2nd place and de Winton House for 3rd place. Well done to Alfie Jones for the award for outstanding characterisation, Georgiana Griffith for outstanding emotional performance, Hannah Mathias for outstanding performance in a comedic role, de Winton House for most innovative staging ideas and Orchard House for outstanding performance by an ensemble.
A fabulous evening!
