Success for Brabyns Preparatory School at the ISA Drama Festival 2019

Posted on: 29 Apr 2019

Pupils, parents and staff from Brabyns Preparatory School in Marple are celebrating after winning at the Independent Schools Association Drama Festival last month.

Children from the co-educational independent day school’s Year 2 class performed their production of ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ by Drew Daywalt and won ‘Best Infant Production’ at the festival.

The Independent Schools Association Drama Festival is an annual celebration of the dramatic arts. Schools from across the country perform as part of the competition and each performance is assessed by an independent judge.

Commenting on the school’s performance, the judge’s report said, “A very young cast showed great courage in presenting this lovely piece. Presented as a series of monologues about their own particular talents - the coloured pencils jumped out of the pencil case to give us their story. Each colour was illustrated neatly by a differently hued hat and the words were delivered in a heartfelt and often hilarious manner.”

Mr Marc Hall, Music and Drama Specialist at Brabyns Preparatory School, was delighted with the children’s achievement. He said: “I am so proud of all the children in Year 2 who showed commitment and enthusiasm for the competition - particularly taking scripts home and learning their lines. Each of them displayed true character and confidence in their performances, which reflected in this fantastic achievement.”
