Madras College Production Company Presents “Beauty and the Beast”
On Thursday 18th December, the 6th Year Production Company put on a fantastically gender-bending performance of Beauty and the Beast. This Christmas panto (which is the first of hopefully many of student-led pantomimes) included 3 fabulous dames, 2 spirited dance scenes and a powerful feminist speech. The group was made up of 10 actors, a director and countless backstage helpers.
The idea of the production company was to give those who haven't studied drama a chance to take part in theatre work, and it has done just that - having starred Advanced Higher Drama pupils alongside complete novices who were keen to try their hand.
The witty and original script accompanied with the fantastic effort put in by all those involved resulted in an excellent finished product which was enjoyed by all.
