Court Fields rocks!

Over 50 students from Court Fields School came together to put on the best musical production that the school has seen, We Will Rock You. Based on the music of Queen, written by Ben Elton, the performances were everything that was promised by the show’s title and more. There were outstanding vocal and acting performances from Ashleigh Payne and Dilly Croxall as Galileo and Scaramouche, the dreamer and his rock chick that wanted to break free from the iron ruling of Globalsoft’s Killer Queen. Played by Jenna Leiser, the Killer Queen dominated the stage, with a fantastic voice and attitude, flanked by superb performances from Bethany Collins and Rhian Mitchell, as her right hand women, the Khashoggis.

Court Fields Perform in Plymouth

Some of Court Fields School’s talented Drama students were fortunate enough to perform ‘The Wardrobe’ by Sam Holcroft at Theatre Royal Plymouth on Tuesday 29th April. ‘The Wardrobe’ is one of this year’s new plays written by established writers for young people involved in the NT Connections project. Students performed the play at Court Fields in March and then further rehearsed and refined it for performance in the Drum Theatre at Theatre Royal Plymouth. The students took part in workshops with professional directors and worked with the Drum Theatre’s technical staff. The students were very fortunate that the playwright Sam Holcroft travelled to Plymouth to watch their performance and the cast were able to meet her afterwards and thank her for writing such a fantastic play for them to perform.

Pictured are Court Fields School cast of 'The Wardrobe' with writer Sam Holcroft and Theatre Royal Plymouth Young Company with the writer of their play 'Pronoun', Evan Placey.
