St. Chad’s College Green Door Theatre company held its debut fresher’s showcase on Sunday, 9th October.
The event introduced fresher’s to the theatre group, and displayed the range of musical, poetic, artistic, and comical talent the JCR has to offer. The successful evening was reflected in its high attendance – a cheerful number for its first show of the year.
The evening began with a melody by the college’s Chazz Band, which finished with their iconic rendition of ‘County Roads’, a college classic! The audience were serenaded by Wales’ pride, Dewi. Jess, Hilaire, and Craig recited poetry. Griff and Harry performed sensationally on the piano, and Cormac acted out a Spike Milligan classic. David, Alex, and Fergus performed compelling monologues. Izzie and Milly respectively gave phenomenal performances on the pole and violin.
Green Door’s President, Christie Clark hosted the evening, introduced each act, and mentioned a little about their college presence. They had a successful fresher’s fair uptake, but are always continuously looking for new members. You can view their page at www.facebook.com/GreenDoorTC.
Green Door will next bring to the stage Tim Firth’s ‘Flint Street Nativity’. Interviews open 17th October.
