We staged our annual two-night Performance Showcase before Easter, in which local students treated the public to an extravaganza of dance, drama, comedy and musical theatre. The college’s own incredibly talented Performing Arts students were joined onstage by equally impressive pupils from Pakefield High School in Lowestoft, Cliff Park Ormiston Academy in Gorleston and Aldeburgh Music’s Group A.
Highlights of the event included ‘Jack’ a short play written by Joe Flatt who studies BTEC Performing Arts at L6FC. ‘Jack’ was an adaptation of ‘Jack in the Beanstalk’ and included witty humour, clever characterisation and excellent comic timing. This play was developed as a part of the College’s extra-curricular performance workshop programme. Students from Cliff Park Ormiston Academy performed ‘Dangerous’ by David Guetta and ‘Upton Funk’ by Mark Ronson. The silky smooth harmonies performed by Eryn Burgess, Emily George, and Emma Clayton were extremely well received by the audience and fellow performers. Pakefield High School students added some excellent quality dance performances to the mix with solos from Lily Coote and Olivia Robson which were beautifully choreographed and professionally performed.
Katy Beales, the event co-ordinator said “My personal highlights were the singers from Cliff Park, as well as the magnificent rendition of ‘Do You Hear The People Sing’, ‘On My Own’ and ‘One Day More’ from Les Miserables. Working with our music teacher, Guy Nottage, the students from L6FC recreated the harmonies and characteristics from this iconic musical to near perfection.”
Two shining stars of the event were Alice Hunton and Victoria Stone, currently studying A2 Dance at the College, these two girls performed solos, duets, and songs from the shows. A particular highlight was their execution of ‘What Is This Feeling’ from 'Wicked' as well as a dance duet that they created as a tribute to their dance teacher. ... See MoreSee Less
