Glen of Thrones, A Winter Star is a Comedy, Adventure and Romance based around the tale of three princesses as they make their journey through the local area of Lochaber, meeting strange creatures like the kelpies and selkies and trying to outrun their evil Uncle Hisstamine and his dwarf servant Carryon. They have hard times ahead of them to complete their quest, but with the air of their servant Gorse, their dog Bracken and a little help from their magical Aunt Thistle, they hope to beat their Uncle to the Phonobook of legend, which will reveal which of them shall rule.
The production of the play is done only with the help of the school’s teamwork and aid. Actors are handpicked from the school and village community in auditions by the Drama Teacher/Director/Author of the play Ilona Munro, who then undertake rehearsals throughout the week in school friendly hours. The Technical department focus on set building, and their skill was truly shown by that amazing Pirates Mast that was constructed for the Peter Pandemonium School Play last year. Pupils that have an urge to be at the controls of lighting and sound are in luck, as the lighting team are eager for pupils to be a part of the behind the scenes action. They help show them how to operate lights on stage, learn stage directions and queue lines, all giving then experience in case they wish to take this knowledge on in later life. Young pupils who have musical talent are welcome to the Dramafish Rockschool, who are playing this year in the school play. The band is made up of pupils from the school but they are always looking out for more musical talent that want to be in the production. Costumes are made and designed by our team of skilled costume designers and other volunteers that believe themselves to be capable of creating robes and crowns and all other clothing for the performance.
Glen of Thrones A Winter Star will take place on the 9th to the 12th of December 2015 in the Kinlochleven High School Theatre and everyone is welcome to view the production. The Play will consist of 2 Acts, each containing an exciting section of the princesses quest for the Aluminium Throne and we hope that you will come along and enjoy the adventure!
