DLD College London students shine on stage

Posted on 14th Feb 2018 in School News, Drama

Students at DLD College London recently showcased their exceptional talents during the annual drama production, performing a rendition of the well-known musical ‘Guys and Dolls’.

The Westminster Bridge-based College stunned the audience with an outstanding performance of the romantic comedy, telling the familiar tale of gambling and love.

Guests gathered in the remarkable atrium as the popular plot was re-enacted by the highly-creative students. Year 13 students Christian Mitchell and Emina Curic, returned to the stage after last year’s production where they once again gave a convincing performance portraying two of the lead characters.

Many students assumed roles which they were not expecting, such as Aniruddha Palanimurugan (Year 13) who joined the group originally to document the rehearsals on video however he has since taken to the stage to perform.

The inaugural musical at the college was also the first time that the yearly production was student-led with A-Level student Magalie Basil-Surenthiran producing the show, and fellow students working on choreography, costume and props.

Principal Irfan Latif commented: “Our students and staff showcased a highly professional performance that thoroughly captivated and entertained the audience; the dedication and enthusiasm to rehearsals was evident, making our first ever musical a great success.

“At DLD College London we encourage our students to express their creativity by engaging in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, building on their confidence, instilling a vital life-skill.”
