A group of sixth form students from Ellesmere College have recently performed a play at St Mary's Church, Shrewsbury, as part of their A Level Performance Studies course.
This production of "Monkey Business", The Darwin Musical, was written and produced by the students. As part of their course work, this community project was also promoted locally and the cast had a small but appreciative audience of local people present for this public performance.
The students involved were: William Bartlett, Adam Beech, Jamie Cartwright, Alex Deller, Jed Denham and Michael Langton. Richard Boswell, Head of Drama at Ellesmere, commented: "wearing comic masks and with humorous songs, the piece wittily illustrated the debate between Darwin's theory of evolution and biblical creationism."
