'Hey-Ho, Hey-Ho, it's off to Highsted we go!' - Roddick wins House Drama
Thursday 22 November was Highsted’s annual House Drama Competition. The six houses were represented by a mix of students across Years 7-13 and gave incredible performances, inspired by this year’s theme ‘Respect’. The competition was judged by Ms Grace Hale, Ms Georgia Lane, Ms Ashlea Williams and Ms Lacey Pavitt, all experts in Drama.
This year’s winners, Roddick, were inspired by the famous story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and used this tale to explore what ‘respect’ means to different people. During the play, Snow White battled to teach students at 'Highsted Forest Grammar School for Dwarves' using all her cunning and witty rhymes.
Other performances included: Chanel’s adaptation of Caryl Churchill’s play Top Girls; Seacole’s story following Lily, a young student challenged to write a speech and dreams of influential women who visit her as she sleeps; Eliot’s thrilling tale of Tia, a girl forced to make a choice that could change her life and destroy her career forever; Franklin’s piece honouring the Suffragettes; and Keller’s Behind Closed Doors – a drama exploring key figures who have shaped the world.
As always, it was an excellent event and all those involved should be proud of their efforts.
