The Agony & the Ecstasy…

This morning the Drama Department posted the eagerly awaited cast list for our forthcoming Upper School performance of ‘Wind in the Willows’.  This is always such a challenge for Mrs Gascoigne as she is rather a victim of her own success!  Over 90 pupils took a risk and put themselves forward for 48 roles…Mrs Gascoigne found the task literally impossible and settled on a cast of 74…

…naturally, there will be very mixed feelings, elation for those who got a part and disappointment for those who did not.  However, in a term where ‘risk-taking’ is our focus, I want to truly commend all those who might be feeling disheartened and I would add that you managed to succeed where I failed, as I was always too scared to even audition…you win!
