Phan­tom’

for drama competition

Evening Express (City Final) - The Guide - - ARTS AND STAGE -

“One half is about the char­ac­ters on the train, and the other half is the peo­ple on the plat­form wait­ing for the train to ar­rive, and then they have a train crash. “Act Daft’s is based loosely on the film The Break­fast Club. “It’s about a group of teenagers on an ori­en­teer­ing trip and they get lost in the for­est, and it’s all about get­ting to know each other and how they’re all from dif­fer­ent so­cial groups and dif­fer­ent schools. “Corn­hill’s one is based on first times – like your first Valen­tine’s card, your first party, the first time you do some­thing il­le­gal. “They’re all very dif­fer­ent – and writ­ten and per­formed in dif­fer­ent styles as well.” Each of the plays in the SCDA must be at least 20 min­utes and no longer than 50 min­utes, and each of the youth groups’ ones are 35 min­utes long, which Marie says is “quite a lot for im­pro­vised drama”. Act Daft and Corn­hill groups per­form next Fri­day evening at 7.30pm, and Act Two per­form on Satur­day at 7.30pm.

BIG BREAK: Laura Row­ley as Chris­tine in The Phan­tom, which hits HMT next week.
