This year the Secondary Drama Club students pulled out all the stops to prove that Christmas really isn’t Christmas without a good, old-fashioned Santa. Their comic production ‘Catch me if you Can’ featured Fax Modem and his team of inept international agents plotting to eliminate Santa and replace him with a more high-tech version – a plan eventually foiled by his loyal elves, who killed them all off. With appearances from Superman, Red Riding Hood, her grandmother, the wolf, rap dancers, talking trees and a very scary narrator, this ‘off-piste’ seasonal offering showcased a variety of student talent in acting, singing, dancing and the odd karate chop! Our performers really gave it their all and were well rewarded by the enthusiastic response of the audience.
With Scenery, props, costumes, programmes and posters provided by supporting Art students and the music, sound and technical support provided by Music students, the show was a truly collaborative effort and thanks, of course, are due to the Art, Music and I.T. teachers whose fantastic mentoring and personal help brought this all to fruition.
