Dauntsey’s Performs a Fishy Tail
Pupils from Dauntsey’s Performing Polly Teale’s ‘Mermaid’
A group of twenty pupils from the fourth form up to the sixth form at Dauntsey’s has performed a striking production of Polly Teale’s ‘Mermaid’, an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s ‘Little Mermaid’.
The plot explores the character of ‘Blue’ who writes a modern fairy-tale as an escape from a life filled with insecurities.
Elise Chambers, Teacher of Drama, Dauntsey’s said;
“The pupils did a brilliant job of transporting the audience to the mermaid world, the experience being further enhanced by wonderful lighting, sound, set and costume design.
“We were immersed in a watery world where the young actors cleverly conveyed a clear divide between the troubles on land versus the peace under the water.’’
