Watch out for a short film on the aims of the Coram Boy production next week, featuring interviews with cast and crew and highlights from rehearsal footage.

It promises to be a fascinating, sneak peak into the process of mounting a theatre production and will be broadcast on Trinity’s YouTube channel from 7pm, Wednesday 14th October.

Coram Boy is an award-winning children’s novel by Jamila Gavin. Published in 2000, three narratives combine within it, in a story of love, friendship and betrayal. The book was adapted for the stage by Helen Edmundson, while The Mitre Players and Trinity Drama department made it their own.

Mr C Chambers, Head of Drama Productions, says: “Whereas it was unfortunate not to be able to bring all the strands of production together into a final performance, the process itself had a life of its own – and this short documentary, I hope, gives a sense of the passion, enthusiasm and commitment of cast and crew.”

The Mitre Players is the dramatic society for former pupils of Trinity School and is also open to anyone else interested in amateur dramatics. It presents four or five productions a year in a wide variety of venues, including the prestigious Minack Theatre on the Cliffs near Lands End, The Shaftesbury Theatre in Dawlish and The Apollo Theatre on The Isle of Wight.
