Greene, a fourth form student, with no acting experience, portrayed a homosexual man in his school’s play: “The plane land.” The youngster noted that “I feel good to win this award.”

Greene assured that he would now be taking part in more stage productions and it is an activity he thoroughly enjoys.

An award ceremony was held at the Peace Memorial Hall on Wednesday, December 2, after two weeks of drama productions put on by eleven secondary schools across the nation.

The award for Best lead actor went to Anthony Edwards of the Campden Park Secondary School. Best lead Actress went to T-Sah Greaves of the St Joseph’s Convent Kingstown. Other awards were given to the other participating schools in various categories.

Winner of the Best Production of the year award, the Girls’ High School, gave the audience quite a show with their production “Bellywoman Bangarang”. The play focused on three teenaged girls who became pregnant and did not have any clue of what they were going to do.

An impromptu skit put on by some of the teachers had the audience in stitches as the jokes kept coming.

Chief Adjudicator Nigel Morgan said that drama is alive and well in the secondary schools and it is something to be proud about. He noted that the level of acting was at a very high standard and the productions bore evidence that students are improving in their communication skills.

Marketing Executive of LIME, Fitz Gerald Huggins pledged his company’s continued support for the festival and urged students to keep up their good work.

Senior Education Officer Carlton “CP” Hall urged the students to remember that through their drama productions they help officials in the Ministry of Education to identify problems that are affecting them. He further implored the students to help the ministry to find solutions for these problems.(KW)
