Pupils hit the stage
School pupils from North Devon take to the stage in Bristol as part of a national drama competition.
A GROUP of school pupils from Bideford became the stars of the show when they performed a play at the prestigious Old Vic theatre in Bristol.
The pupils of Kingsley School selected the new play, ‘Journey to X’, to perform as part of the National Theatre’s annual Connections drama competition.
The first showing of the play was in the school, with appraisal and feedback from a national theatre director, before the group headed to Bristol on Thursday for the grand finale.
The cast of the play set off at dawn, and under the direction of Michelle Borsten, Kingsley’s head of drama, spent the day rehearsing for the evening show.
