Do We Ever See Grace?

At Ascham we love our drama and last weekend’s Middle School Production Do We Ever See Grace? was dramatic, bold, colourful and brilliant.

Twenty-seven students from Years 7, 8 and 9 took to the stage of the Packer Theatre. Director Mr Jon Suffolk described the play: ‘Based on the political scene of London in the Thatcher years, the play explores life through the eyes of a group of circus clowns, representing the many different facets of the UK’s social and political structures of the time, and the effects on the lower classes of the privatisation of public facilities and services.’

The stage was magically transformed into a circus ring with bright, bold colours and a ‘big top’ feel as the girls employed their acting, clowning and puppetry skills.

Ms Megan Venhoek designed the beautiful set and gorgeous costumes. With original music by Mr Richard Charlton and student Phoebe Steley, the audience was also delighted to see the Ascham Chamber Orchestra playing as part of the production.

Thank you to the cast and crew who dedicated time and effort to ensure this production was a success, Ascham’s Drama Department, Music Department, Boarding, Maintenance and Catering, and all the students who volunteered backstage.
