BUDDING actors and actresses have delighted audiences with their version of a famous classic comedy.

Students from Woodbridge School’s sixth-form recently took to the stage for French playwright Moliere’s Tartuffe.

The 11 youngsters from Year 12 and 13 performed the slapstick, high-energy farce in full 17th-Century costume, complete with wigs and amongst a specially designed set at the Seckford Theatre.

Gemma Mayes, head of drama at Woodbridge School, said: “Tartuffe became one of Moliere’s greatest successes.

“The translation that we used was written by the highly acclaimed English performance poet, Roger McGough and was first performed in 2008 – it’s both sparkling and witty.

“Our students have enjoyed not only exploring the text but experimenting with the Commedia dell’Arte style which has been a stylistic influence for our own production.

“The rehearsal process has been extremely enjoyable with much laughter along the way.”
