From Theatresports Convenor, Peter Lamb
The enthusiastic response to our initial notice led to Waverley being able to field an Intermediate team and a Senior team in the Theatre Sports Interschool Challenge. Both teams have trained twice a week, on top of their existing co-curricular sporting commitments, over the last few terms.
The Intermediate team consisted of Jack Hilary, Daniel Pomes, Remy Crompton-Lamb and Lucas Giordano. Seniors included Simon Finnegan, Ryan Bakels, Sam King and Leonardo Bosi. The senior boys got a chance to hone their skills in front of the Deputies Conference held at Waverley recently.
Although we narrowly missed out on inclusion in the Semi-Finals (the Intermediates missed out by one point!) both teams acquitted themselves extremely well. They won praise from the judges and audiences for confident, entertaining performances that belied their lack of prior experience in the competition.
Waverley is proud of these dedicated and talented young performers. With this experience under their belts who knows where they’ll finish up in the next year’s competition?
And the fun’s not over! The boys will continue their weekly training sessions and will perform next term at school assemblies. Next Semester, we will be inviting Year 7 and 8 boys to participate in the Theatre Sports Interschool Challenge! There is a sign on sheet in the PAC Music Office (please see Mrs Kossenberg).
