Fabulous Fierce Theatre Makers  

Fabulous Fierce Theatre Makers

On Monday, drama students at the senior school were treated to a performance by collaborative performers, Holly Norrington and Teddy Lamb, of their self-penned show ‘Pond Wife’. A radical reimagining of Hans Christian Anderson’s classic fairy tale – The Little Mermaid, told through the medium of 90s pop, using storytelling and a selection of cheesy songs.  This was followed by an afternoon workshop, exploring the art of Devising theatre from a stimulus.

The drama school graduates – who toured the UK last year, including a stint at the Edinburgh Festival – were described by The Stage as ‘joyfully ingenious’; a sentiment very much shared by Akeley’s own emerging talent.
