French drama competition

CLSG students dress rehearsal for French drama competition

CLSG’S dramatic debut at the Festival de Théâtre Francophone earlier this month was a huge success! Out of 13 top schools, CLSG was awarded the prize for Best Play with their contemporary take on Racine’s Andromaque. With precision - yet no shortage of passion - this performance was a technical feat of excellent spoken French and ‘Greek chorus inspired’ choreography, as well as a creative feat, bringing the text to life with emotion and nuance. Georgie, Ningfei (year 13) and Saffiya (year 12) worked incredibly hard on the piece and did brilliantly on the night. Félicitations!
