Rydal Penrhos is thrilled to confirm that this year’s Senior Production for Years 10-13 is Under Milk Wood (The Definite Edition).
Rydal Penrhos has thrilled audiences in recent years with some Dramatic Society plays and musicals that have enhanced the school’s incredible Performing Arts provision. These productions are always hugely anticipated dates on the calendar, with the likes of Annie the Musical and Les Miserables among the notable highlights.
The school is also thrilled to confirm that there will be two productions this academic year, which follow on from the sensational Matilda the Musical Jr. performance that proved to be another sensational hit.
Our upcoming Year 10-13 showcase will be the amateur production of “Under Milk Wood (The Definitive Edition)“, which is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatres Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd. www.concordtheatricals.co.uk
The call for cast members received an overwhelming response, with more than 50 pupils set to lend their support as actors, rehearsing throughout breaks and lunch as well as during after school alongside their studies.
This collective production will also see 12 pupils taking responsibility for creative elements of the Under Milk Wood (The Definitive Edition) under the supervision of staff led by Miss Fiona Earle.
It promises to be a few weeks ahead for the cast ahead of their performances, which take place on Sunday 16 October, Monday 17 and Tuesday 18 in the Memorial Hall from 7pm.
The set will be formed next week along with a lighting workshop, with full and dress rehearsals also scheduled before what promises to be a memorable three nights showcasing the best performing arts prowess at Rydal Penrhos.
Cast members will also get a vocal masterclass from Mr Ben Richards, a former Rydal Penrhos teacher.
Miss Earle, said: “This will be a celebration of the lyrical beauty of Dylan Thomas’s language and his affectionate characterisation.
“I am excited about the energy and enthusiasm being generated by this communal work, with everyone supporting one another.”
Ticket information will be available in the coming days. It promises to be one not to miss!
