Welcome to the website of Thadden English Drama Club! Our aim is to combine the fun of acting with learning a foreign language. Everybody who likes acting or English or both or is interested in working backstage is warmly welcome to join us!
The club was founded in 2004 and has so far produced eight plays: "Arsenic & Old Lace" (2005), "Noises Off" (2006), "Dracula" (2007), "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" (2008), "East is East" (2009), "The Crucible" (2010), "A Midsummer Night's Dream" (2011), "The Talented Mr Ripley" (2012), "Twelfth Night" (2014) and "What We Did" (2015). The club is run by Nicholas Humphrey, one of the English teachers of the school. Up to 70 students have been involved in each of our recent productions. They don't only act, but are also in charge of the set design and construction, the make-up, the costumes, lighting and sound, PR and more.
The English Drama Club is open to all students from Year 9 to Year 13. We are always looking for new members and there are no requirements other than being open to trying out new things – so come along and join the fun!
