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.'

NOTES:
*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).
