The Creative Arts Department is delighted to announce the School Production for 2017 is Monstrum.
After 4 years of phenomenally successful school musicals, 2017 will see something different! For the first time Prestatyn High School will participate in the National Theatre Connections. This prestigious event will see our pupils participate in a national festival of performance and will culminate in a school performance from Tuesday 14th - Thursday 16th February 2017 during which a Director from the National Theatre will attend. The pupils will then perform again with our partner theatre, Aberystwyth Arts Centre, on the weekend of Saturday 1st/Sunday 2nd April. A selection of plays from around the country will then be selected to go to London and perform in the National Theatre in July 2017 (After GCSE/A-Level exams have finished.) Whilst they say it is not a competition it would be phenomenal if our pupils could be selected to go to London. We will certainly do everything we can to achieve this.
The Monstrum by Kellie Smith
In a cold village on the edge of nowhere, a disease has broken out, infecting the young and transforming them into monstrous creatures. The villagers fearfully watch their children for symptoms of the disease, whilst the Mayor has adopted tough measures for dealing with those who are infected. When Bolek, the local scholar, makes a breakthrough in finding a cure, few are prepared for the gruesome nature of the treatment. But with his own daughter showing signs of infection, there is no choice than to stop this terrible disease dead in its tracks. A gothic melodrama about the terrifying onset of adolescence.
Tickets will be on sale from January 2017
