With three quarters of the cast of this years' production of Twelfth Night sitting public exams during rehearsals, the co-ordination of this year's Shakespeare play had some challenges!
However, as is tradition in our drama department, we got stuck in. Led brilliantly by Tomás Sergeant and Head of Drama, Mr Baddeley, we were able to coordinate just enough time to rehearse our 40 minute production of Twelfth Night to a high standard, as well as having tremendous fun along the way.
What I always enjoy most about drama at Winchester College is the sense of community a cast builds; no matter how diverse a cast we are, we all leave a production feeling as though we were part of something to be proud of, that we had achieved in the company of friends. I am very grateful to have been able to play Viola, act alongside such talented people, and I look forward to being on the stage again soon.
