NEW PERFORMING ARTS CENTRE NOW OPEN

Visitors are welcomed into a light and airy foyer upon entering this modern, well-equipped building which offers tiered seating for 190, two Drama studio spaces, one with green screen facility, and new facilities for the actors including a Green Room space for performers to convene and relax. The Godfrey Brown Theatre includes new lighting and sound equipment to support future productions.

Mrs J Witcomb, Head of Drama, said; “I am delighted to finally be in the new Performing Arts Centre. It is an amazing venue and we are very privileged to have such a lovely facility at RGS. It has been an exciting first week and the students and the teachers are very much looking forward to the future and using the Centre to its full advantage. A huge thank-you to all that have been involved in turning what we first designed on a small piece of paper into a reality.”

John Pitt, Headmaster, commented, “We are thrilled to have the Performing Arts Centre which will encourage our Arts programme to continue to thrive at RGS. I am extremely pleased with the final facility and look forward to seeing our Performing Arts in the future. Thank-you to Mr Ian Roberts, DFO, Mrs Susannah Ronan-Hill, Facilities Manager, the Drama department and all who have been involved in the design and build of the facility.

It was the intention of the School to build a Performing Arts Centre several years ago and it is wonderful that the project has finally been delivered.”
