On Wednesday 8 May, Caterham Young Rep performed The Storm, written and co-directed by Will (Fourth Year) and Louise Fahey. Our young director, Will created an exceptional play with a strong message and was said by the judge to have a lot of potential. Caterham Junior Rep performed How to Succeed in High School without Really Trying by Jonathan Rand. A comic piece putting a twist in a narrative they experience daily.

On Thursday 9 May, Caterham Junior Rep performed a fresh take on a well-known story, Greta. The audience were guided through our play by Jung’s insight into the world of Hansel and Gretel. Caterham School also had Spotlight Theatre Company perform, a company formed by a dedicated group of Third Year pupils. Taking on Leatherhead for the second year after winning the new writing award at last year’s festival. This piece followed the impact on peers as the story of a pupil’s disappearance unfolds.

The department are incredibly proud of all our writers, directors and performers. Their commitment to the rehearsal process and professionalism within the theatre was phenomenal.
