The Sad Club - Behind the Scenes
The recent School Play, The Sad Club, was a departure from the normal full school production, and a complete contrast to last year's 'Beauty and the Beast'. The production involved girls from Years 10 to 13, and was an ensemble piece. You can find out more about the show in 'The Sad Club Sparkles'.
Here, Year 10 pupil Dami gives her insight into the process.
The Senior School Play was one of the best experiences I have taken part in since joining Cobham Hall. Not only did it help develop my confidence further and push me out of my comfort zone, it also aided me in gaining friendships throughout the older years.
The process was quite long. However, I never failed to be excited for a rehearsal and enjoyed immensely working together on a very ensemble piece which required maintaining a level of trust between me and my cast mates. I feel as though all of the actors fit their roles perfectly and seeing us all become more comfortable and mature as actors gave us all a sense of pride.
The opening nights were exhilarating; the lights, the music and the fantastic audience we were graced with, really made the show. The feedback we received from the rest of the school was great to hear and made me feel so lucky to be a part of ‘The Sad Club’. None of this would have been possible without Mrs Gorman and Miss Beadle and for that I think I speak for the whole cast when I say I'm extremely grateful to them for making this an amazing and unforgettable experience.
