Bristol Drama students take to the stage at The FringeJuly 24th, 2013
The Sixth Form pupils are presenting two of Angela Carters re-imaginings of classic fairy tales Puss in Boots, a riotous romp complete with a couple of murderous kitties, and The Company of Wolves. The productions will both incorporate live music, movement and dance.
17 year old Jessie Nixon, who is directing The Company of Wolves, recently won an award from the Harry Crook Foundation to support her work at the Festival. She will be one of the youngest people to have directed a production at The Fringe.
Sarah McCormack, Director of Drama at Redland High School, said, You will see all-male productions at most Arts Festivals these days but all-female companies are much rarer. Our students are talented and ambitious and The Fringe Festival gives them the opportunity to experience the lives of adult professional artists, as well as showcasing their work in an international arena.
The play will be performed from 2 10 August (not Sunday 4 August) at 2.05pm at The Space on North Bridge.Tags: Angela Carter, Arts Festivals, Ashley Down, Bishopston, Bristol, Drama, fairy tale, Harry Crook Foundation, Horfield, Jessie Nixon, magazine, perform, Puss in Boots, Redland, Redland High School, Sarah McCormack, school, Sixth Form, students, The Company of Wolves, The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Theatre, voice Back to news
