On 28 April at 10:30 a.m., participating school teams take it in turn to step onto the stage at the Lionel Wendt theatre to present their entry at one of the most anticipated English drama competitions in Sri Lanka – known simply by students as ‘Drama Comp’. The Inter-School Drama Competition is now in its 29th version and is organised by the Interact Club of Royal College. Audiences and school supporters are welcome to watch young actors present a varied genre of theatre – from own scripts to well loved playlets, from comedies to high drama. At the ‘Semi’s’ on 28 April, the actors and crew will stretch themselves to be one of three chosen to ‘make it to the finals’ by a panel of judges well respected theatre professionals, some of who have walked the boards at earlier editions of the Drama Comp! Last year, Methodist College won the competition with an original script with a serious take on human behaviour. Ladies College was First Runner Up with St. Josephs coming in as Second Runner Up both doing excellent performance. While, the schools that entered the competition in January this year have been busy rehearsing over the last three months – a group of 81 Interactors of Royal College have been quietly working hard behind the scenes in managing and staging the event – so that not just the actors can discover their talent but the theatre loving public can enjoy an entertaining evening. The Finals will be held at 6 p.m. on 13 May at the Lionel Wendt. Join them on 28 and 13 April and May.
