The Drama department’s first lunchtime Open Mic session took place today and was focused on Musical Theatre. The select audience was treated to a range of show tunes from seven talented Year 12 students, from old classics to more recent classic show tunes, piano accompaniment from Darcey Wynter. Here is the line-up:
- Honey: Before it's Over from Dogfight
- Hattie: Not a Day Goes By from Merrily We Roll Along
- Lucy: Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
- Lara : There are Worse Things I Could Do from Grease
- Bede: Fight the Dragons from Big Fish
- Lily: Still Hurting from The Last Five Years
- Clemmie: Meadowlark from The Baker’s Wife
The concept of the Open Mic sessions is to try out material in the low-stakes, informal atmosphere of our Drama 1 studio.
While it was good practice for the performers it was also such an uplifting treat for those lucky enough to get a seat this lunchtime!
Head of Drama, Mr Piper, said:
Bear Pit Bitesize Open Mic Musical Theatre with Year 12 dramatists was just delightful this lunchtime. Talent and heart and stacks of joy - a real tonic in these strange days.
