Dauntsey's Lower School Pulls Off a Hit Show

Published Thursday 5th of February 2015 02:11:16 PM

A group of twenty Lower School pupils from Dauntsey�s School is celebrating a successful production of �Daisy Pulls it Off�. Under the direction and leadership of Sixth Former Libby Hollingshead, the School staged three excellent performances of this comedy about life in a 1920s English boarding School.

The Lower School boarding house, The Manor*, is an impressive Victorian mansion which provided the perfect setting for the play.

Rikki Jackson, Dauntsey�s School Director of Drama said, �The standard of performance was very impressive, given the age of the cast and Libby did a wonderful job in directing the production of this very entertaining play.

�The inspired setting, tremendous lead performances and fast moving action ensured that audiences were treated to a great night of entertainment.�

*The Manor is a Victorian mansion set in 65 acres of grounds and ancient woodland. The house was built in the 1860s for Sir Edward Pleydell-Bouverie, who was MP for Kilmarnock in Scotland for 30 years and held various posts in the Liberal administration of Lord Palmerston.

The building was bought by Dauntsey�s School in the 1920s, and has remained a superb facility for boarders ever since. Today, it accommodates between 60 and 70 Lower School boarders (aged 11 to 14).
