House Drama – judges revealed

Published 26 March 2024

 An important date for your diary! House Drama is back and will be held on Tuesday 23 April.

This annual competition sees the Houses battle it out to impress a school hall audience with their theatre productions. Each House will perform a piece written by our Year 12 students, who are also responsible for directing our Year 8 and Year 10 actors. Students have been busy rehearsing hard at lunch and after school, and will have a whole day rehearsal on the day of the performances. Last year we had  a mystical adventure and retelling of folk tales, a mystery murder with a sinful cast, ‘Macbeth’ as you’ve never seen it performed before and a dystopian games show! What will St Bart’s students bring to the stage this year? And can Evers retain their 2023 title?

We are delighted to also announce that joining us in the judges’ chairs will be Nathan Lubbock-Smith and Rohan Richards from AVA (Academy of Vocal Arts). Based in Newbury, AVA is a fantastic performing arts school that focuses primarily on the voice and that has supported many new talents into the music industry and musical theatre business. Will they be impressed by our future stars of the stage?

Tickets for the evening will go on sale on ParentPay next week, so please do watch out for these and book your seats!
