A young musical theatre class distinguished itself in a performance arts exam held recently in St Albans.
Cabaret is one of Theatrix’s youngest classes and its members took part in rigorous tests of their skills in the Trinity College examination held at the Abbey Theatre.
The pass mark is 65 per cent with distinctions only awarded for marks over 85 per cent. Cabaret achieved 95 per cent and distinctions with a Grade 4 piece on the theme of refugees.
It involved a range of performance arts including scripted work, improvisation, singing and choreography in a story about how, far from home and abandoned by their parents, two sets of children leave home on an adventure to find their mother and father.
Theatrix principal Rosemarie Partridge said: “It is always a matter of joy and pride when our students achieve distinctions in their exams.
“But it is particularly so when the students in question are our younger ones.
“The Trinity College Examiner said they obviously all enjoyed themselves very much. It’s a very important point. It’s all too easy to forget that acting should be fun.”
