Wacky Soap (BTEC Performing Arts Assessment, Springwood High School, May 2011)
Roles played: Punk/Various choral roles
For this production, the cast was much smaller, so some roles were merged and divided within the small group. I was given the role of Punk and subsequently, most of the lines of the Unks – the antagonists of the piece. Also I sang in a duet with another cast member. When I didn’t have a speaking role in a scene, I served a choral or background role.
