Commedia dell'Arte mask winners announced
Year 7 drama students have been studying the history of pantomime during the autumn term. As part of this study, the students have been involved in an ongoing homework project about the Commedia dell'Arte. This was a form of professional theatre originating from Italy that was popular in Europe from the 16th to the 18th century. It was characterised by masked "types" which the the students have been recreating as part of their project. The students subsequently displayed the masks which were viewed and judged by students and staff who awarded them points as part of the competition.
The form with the most merits overall was Jaggerts whilst the overall winning form was Snells!
Individual winners were as follows:
Cassiobridge - Bianca Stanciu
Gonville - Scarlett Simmons
Jaggerts - Aaron Parmer
Snells - Thomas Ashby
