From 20-22 November, members of Form IV-VI delighted audiences with this year’s Senior School play.
Commendations go to Olivia McKay, who led the cast as Elizabeth Bennet and gave a flawless performance in a very demanding role. Fraser Dawtrey (Mr Darcy), Finian Smyth (Mr Bennet) and Gracie Shearer (Mrs Bennet) also gave excellent performances in their principal roles.
Naomi Langford (Lady Catherine de Burgh) and Kaspar Principe- Gillespie (Mr Collins) gave beautifully judged cameos to increase the comedy – as did the younger Bennet sisters played by Daisy Downie, Ella-Sky Conroy and Ruby Martyn. The lovelorn Jane (Georgie Cassidy) brought out the romance.
The contrasting pair of the haughty Miss Bingley (Camille Wallace) and the unfortunate Charlotte Lucas (Eva Magda Govedarica) successfully elicited very different emotions from the audience.
Bingley (Jack Ireland) seemed charming and was so, while Wickham (Finlay Penderis) seemed a charmer but was a schemer. The whole cast, crew and trio of talented musicians, all resplendent in Regency dress and military uniforms deserve congratulations for their performances.
