About ‘This Song Will Begin Once Again’
It’s the last day of the autumn term and Mrs Briggs and her class are getting ready to finish for the Christmas holidays. But it will be a day of mixed emotions because Mrs Briggs is retiring after a long time as a teacher.
Join Mrs Briggs and her class (and a visitor from afar) for a series of magical stories that will transport you from TV in the ’70s to the battlefields of World War One via Good King Wenceslas and Santa’s grotto.
‘A Ray of Hope’
Rehearsals went really well for this 2017’s Drama and Theatre Club Christmas production: ‘A Ray of Hope’.
‘A Ray of Hope’ brought the Christmas story to Swanside Community Centre’s youth club and Malvern Primary School. The audience met the Johnson kids – Bobbie, Billy, Davey, Ollie, Tilly and Shirley – tearaway siblings who caused nothing but havoc – and the ‘yoofy’ children as they prepared for their Christmas play.
The play charted what happened when the Johnsons decide to join the ‘yoofy’ and get involved with the Christmas preparations.
After the final performance, a member of the audience emailed to say:
“I thought ‘A Ray of Hope’ was funny, uplifting and so professionally acted and produced. I loved the transitions (between scenes) and the music (Rock ‘n’ Roll !) and the interaction between the actors was excellent. The sense of fun came across throughout but it was also moving and realistic, because the story involves the impact on a whole community. You had a sense of real ensemble. The whole production was a joy to watch. Five stars ! (Although there were many !)”

‘At the Number 15 Bus Stop’
Drama and Theatre Club’s 2016 Christmas production received rave reviews ! The cast performed the play three times: a dress rehearsal to the school and two packed evening performances.
‘At the Number 15 Bus Stop’ brought the Christmas story to the home of the Bagshot family on Pilch Lane – and to the Roby Pub and Malvern Primary School.
