Junior School Pupil Pens Original Play
Year 4 pupil, Zach has enjoyed seeing his own work go from the page to the stage, after the premiere performance of his original play, Small and the Christmas Plan.
Zach wrote his short play for children in 2013, when he was just 8 years-old, and this year was finally able to watch it come to life in a performance by fellow Junior School pupils.
With guidance from Junior School teacher and veteran thespian, Ms Rani Chakrabarti, Zach was able to perfect his script for the stage last Autumn, auditioning for a part as an actor in the show with his classmates.
Over 20 pupils from Years 3 to 6 were cast in the play, which premiered to an audience of parents and friends in May 2015.
Ms Chakrabarti said: “The young cast were very excited and worked hard to make it a night to remember, especially for Zach!”
