Congratulations to the boys who performed in the Monmouth School for Girls’ Actors Lab Production of Great Expectations
Directed by Ms H Wragg and co-directed by Tom Wragg-Smith, a former student from Monmouth School for Boys, Actors’ Lab captured the heartbreaking twists of fate in a highly original staging of Dickens’ classic novel of love and betrayal.
It was a delight to see the Drama Club boys play a pivotal role, including some boys taking centre stage in the lead parts. Well done to all involved for their hard work!
Monmouth School Boys’ Prep Strike Gold!
A packed Blake Theatre watched entranced as every boy at Monmouth School Boys’ Prep took to the stage in the musical production of Gold! The story of King Midas who let his love of gold distract him from ruling his kingdom and being a good husband and father was re-told through song and some accomplished acting by boys aged only 7 to 11. Directed by Mrs Sue Wilderspin and with musical direction by Mr David Lawson, the audience left feeling uplifted and truly impressed by the scale of the production.
Cricket Down Under
Boys from Drama Club joined pupils from the Actors’ Lab at Monmouth School for Girls take part in a production of Alice. They performed a whacky, alternative cricket match in an underground Wonderland.
Drama as part of the English Speaking Board Examination
After the General Entry Paper all boys in Prep IV turn their attention to working towards the English Speaking Board Junior Grade 4 Examinations. Boys are required to take part in a mono or duologue and presentation. The Grange is proud of the number of merits and distinctions have gained over the years.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Monmouth School Boys’ Prep drama club boys gave very energetic performances as sprites in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” – a Monmouth School for Girls Actors’ Lab production.
