Lights, camera, actors!

Broadway actors would have been thrilled had they attended the first night of the Secondary Schools Drama Festival, Thursday at Combermere, where students from the Waterford institution itself, The Lodge, Foundation and Alexandra showed their proficiency in acting, performing the popular plays Masquerade, The Ritual, Ti-Jean And His Brothers and Tears In The Gayelle.
   The Foundation School students were the first to grace the stage with their performance of Ti-Jean And His Brothers, which centred on the eldest brother Gros-Jean’s leaving home and during his travels encountering the devil.
The second performance, The Ritual, by Kemon Haynes, Renetta Haynes, Chinue Bute and Christina Wade of The Lodge School, revolved around the pregnancy of one of the teenaged girls, Omega, and evolved into each girl playing the part of Omega, articulating the various situations her pregnancy would lead her to.
Conclusion: Omega lies within all of them.
Tears In The Gayelle was performed by Alexandra; Masquerade, by Combermere.
   The festival ended on Sunday with performances from The Alleyne School, The St Michael School and Lester Vaughn. (SM)
