Ralph Thoresby Theater Production wins awards

July 30th, 2012 · 2 Comments · Ralph Thoresby

It may be the summer holidays, but the students of Ralph Thoresby High School are having their work recognised in the Wharfedale Festival of Drama and bringing home with them a vast number of awards.

The annual school productions at Ralph Thoresby School are fast gaining
recognition across our local communities.

This year, the school produced a slick performance of ‘GREASE’ to 4 nights of
sell out audiences. The final night was said to be particularly enjoyable for our audience,
with a sing-a-long version and the front of house offering an atmosphere of a
period designed American diner offering doughnuts, popcorn and cola.
