Form 3 present Around the World in 80 Days

Form 3 pupils produced a fast-moving and thoroughly enjoyable version of Jules Verne's classic novel in just two days.  This is quite a feat and to accomplish it so efficiently and so seamlessly it was good to welcome back to Brockhurst Mr Ian Murchie, lured out of the Dragon School for a few days to direct the play.

This was truly a team effort: not lead roles as every part was divided among several -layers.  So Phineas Fogg, the explorer who set out from the Reform Club with his manservant Passpartout, was played by no fewer than five boys and girls during the course of the production.
