22 Emanuel students to travel to this years fringe.
This summer 22 Emanuel students will be taking part in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with two very different productions - Noel Coward’s Still Life and Roald Dahl’s The Twits. The Fringe is a notoriously expensive venture, and has broken many an aspiring comedian or fresh faced theatre company, so our pupils are very wisely raising funds beforehand, one such venture being last week’s Edinburgh Cabaret. The Fiennes Theatre was turned into a cabaret venue, complete with a wellstocked wine cellar and waiters. The show was very much put together on the day, however the acts themselves showed real talent and considerable polish. Highlights included Will Kirton telling tales about a lady of a certain age discovering the joys of D.H. Lawrence in Skellern and Stilgoe’s Joyce the Librarian, Ottie's superb performance of I didn’t plan it, from Sara Bareilles’s Waitress: The Musical, and of course Mr Dibden, Mr Williams, Grace, Michael and the wonderfully deadpan Felix with Monty Python’s infamous History of the Jape. The staff and students were ably assisted by Mr Gregory and Mr Liebeck on piano and the show looked and sounded great thanks to the hard work of Miss Kerstein and her technical team. Look out for more Edinburgh fundraising events later in the term.
