Denstone College Third Form play a success

Huge congratulations to the students involved in producing this year's third form play, 'Robin Hood and The Truth Behind the Green Tights,' by David Neilson

The action takes place, once upon a time, in Nottingham and the play concerns the exploits of Albert Ross, described by his wife as a 'weak-kneed, yellow-bellied, chicken-livered little coward,' who attempts to play both sides against each other in the struggle between the forces of good and evil. As you might expect, the show was slapstick in style and relied on pace, energy and skill and our students shone!

The performances were excellent and the audiences were thoroughly entertained; they were laughing from start to finish. The set design was beautiful, with some gorgeous attention to detail. Our thanks to Mrs Lea, her team of students and to the maintenance team for building it. The Technical Team once again worked hard to ensure that the transitions were seamless and that the atmosphere was energetic and fun. The costumes were of the period and the cast looked smashing! The make-up was, once again, superbly applied by our student team and complete transformations were successfully achieved.

All in all, the show was a massive success and it was a pleasure to see the students working so well together, having fun and producing outstanding theatre. 

Well done!
