PQA Enfield students perform at Dugdale Studio Theatre
On Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th July, PQA Enfield students performed a wonderful selection of short plays to an invited audience of family and friends in our Acting Showcase ‘A Festival of Plays’ at The Dugdale Studio Theatre.
Our youngest main Academy students in Green Group performed ‘The Pirates Next Door’ and ‘Gangsta Granny’, our Blue Groups performed ‘Ernie’s Incredible Illucinations’ and Carol Anne Duffy’s the ‘Grimm Tales’, while Red Group students performed stylised episodic scenes from ‘Antigone’ & ‘Zero for the Young Dudes’.
Musical Theatre medleys & Film and TV highlights videos were also presented as interludes between each short play. Green Groups performed charming medley’s from ‘The Sound of Music’ and ‘Aladdin.’ Blue Groups performed ‘School of Rock,’ and ‘High School Musical’ medleys and Red Groups performed ‘Sweet Charity’; ’42nd Street’ and ‘Saturday Night Fever’ medleys.
Our Film & TV highlights videos included montages from our recent red-carpet film festival premiere at The VUE Cinema in North Finchley; behind the scenes, footage capturing pre-production highlights of all the short film projects our students have made this year and a wonderful montage capturing highlights from our Spring Term ‘Acting for Screen’ project.
Our Acting Showcase was a special Performing Arts celebration to mark what will be PQA Enfield’s fifth birthday since we launched the Academy in 2013.
We have a very exciting year planned at PQA Enfield. All our main academy students will be performing in our production of ‘Shakespeare in the Park’ in the beautiful open-air theatre in Capel Manor Gardens with rehearsals will start in the Spring Term of 2019. Our successful film production course will be running for three days in the October Half Term; we have been selected to take part in the National Theatre Connections Festival.
We want to take this opportunity to wish you all a safe and relaxing summer break, and we want to wish our Principal Will McGinley and our Worlds End Repertory Company, the very best of luck in their production of ‘Extremism’ at this years Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
