Camera call for young actors

There were Munchkins, puppies, wicked witches and a few more interesting characters around Gordonton School last week.  Sally Stewart took her camera to the matinee performance of Detention in the Library and grabbed these great shots.

And finally, a heap of Where’s Wallies celebrate their first performance. Left to right, anticlockwise from the bottom are Ryan Waters, Joel Morgan, Olivia Sherborne, Jessica Stewart, Charlotte Verryt, Kormal and Jamie.


Detention in the Library was re-written and produced by Kelly Gyde and starred a heap of talent from Gordonton School.  Top-notch photographs Sally, thank you very much!

    This production was written by the talented year 7 and 8 students and performed by all students of Horsham Downs School 2 years ago. We called it ‘Night in the Library’. It was a great show. There are some very talented kids out there! Hope Gordonton enjoyed it as much as we did!

      I’m sure it was a hit, I know it sold out before time, Stephanie! There is real talent out there. Thanks for the information about who wrote it!
