Panto season started early at the Secombe Theatre with the Action Replay Drama Group's 70's disco-inspired take on this classic tale. Bringing together a community ensemble with backstage support from Bloomin'Arts and a special appearance from Carew Manor's Bellsangels, this sell-out event was a wonderful start to the festive season.
Using Trestle Theatre's Intermediate Mask Set and working alongside artists from STOMP, the Wandle Boys delighted audiences with their devised showcase.
“Brilliant! Thank you so much for your support and hard work, the event has given the whole school a much needed boost of confidence and feelings of team spirit etc at the end of a hard year. It was more than just a drama performance.”
Strictly 'Greased Lightening'
It's 50's cool with a twist! Recently performed by the Action replay drama group as part of Sutton Mencap’s annual 'Strictly Dance' event, this brand-new show, inspired by the characters of GREASE, raced its way round the Secombe Theatre and (a very muddy) Guilfest!
