On Friday 27th August our school welcomed a very special guest, Mercy Cornwall, an actress visiting the southwest as part of CinefestOZ.
The Year 4 and 5 Dance Extension team (with a few extra eager actors) had the opportunity of doing a workshop with Mercy. It started with a trailer screening of Mercy’s new Netflix series ‘Dive Club’, followed by questions and answers on all aspects of acting and the entertainment industry. Mercy then played three short drama games emphasising the importance of stretching your imagination and working as a team.
All in all the biggest lesson was that listening is the most important skill an actor can have… something we can all work on easily at school!
