On Sunday night we had the annual First and Second Form plays. These are a relatively low-key introduction to the Big Schoolroom stage for pupils who may so far have little experience of performing, but are important as first steps, given how much drama happens further up the school.

This term the First Form play Hiss the Villain! was directed by Mr McCarthy (he also accompanied on piano, and there was indeed a lot of hissing of the villain). The Second Form play (directed by Mr Swift and Mr Girdham) was an old favourite, King Chicken, the story of a Tarzan who is very far from being the legendary hero of the jungle.

Both productions plainly gave pleasure to performers and audience alike.

Below is an album of photographs taken by the Chaplain on the evening.
