Jack and Bean tin

5-6 December 2019
Wellington College International Shanghai
Cast members: Upper Prep school pupils

Wellington’s Upper Prep Christmas Pantomime, Jack and the Bean Tin, performed on the 5th and 6th of December to a full theatre. An incredibly talented group of 30 Upper Prep pupils helped bring alive the fun-filled story of true love and the acceptance of being different. The cast has worked tirelessly since August to perfect the choreography, learn the songs and play the characters and it all came together in two magical evenings of entertainment.

ALMOST SOME OF THE TIME

16-18 October 2019
Wellington College International Shanghai
Cast members: Senior school pupils

Wellington’s Senior School play, Almost Some Of The Time, focused on the subject of love, punctuated by ten Bob Dylan songs with scenes playing out in five separate areas of the school’s main reception. The audience moved between the scenes, promenade-style, so that their perception of the drama was constantly changing.  With a concluding scene involving the four therapists discussing what motivates their ‘patients’ to talk to them, love and death are offered as humanity’s defining preoccupations, each somehow linked to the other in a diabolically playful dance.
