The Angmering School Rock Challenge team competed in Rock Challenge at the Hawth Crawley with their piece ‘Dark Side of the Rainbow’. The piece explored the story behind the making of the iconic film ‘The Wizard of Oz’, including the original Tin Man’s allergic reaction to the aluminium body paint, the Wicked Witch becoming badly burnt in a stunt and the near starvation of Dorothy. The students were outstanding and we won 8 awards including Positive Inclusion, Performers Choice and Drama Skills. Overall we placed second and are hoping we may have received a high enough mark to qualify for the finals in April. The students conducted themselves with professionalism throughout the day and were true ambassadors for the school. I would like to thank Andrew Taylor for making some of our fantastic costumes and set, MWS Scenery for providing some of our set, our back stage crew and technical team for their dedication and our fantastic staff, Miss Martin, Mrs Fullman, Miss Waterman, Miss Pratt, Mr Jenner, Mrs Mitchell, Miss Parker and Miss Munday for accompanying us on the trip.
Fingers crossed we get to do it all again!!
