An introduction to Absolute Beginners from the Chairman
...and welcome to Absolute Beginners. I am Ken Ross, the Chairman of this fine institution. We are an entirely student run drama group based in and around Alcester Grammar School in the heart of the Warwickshire countryside. We have been running for what is now 15 years. We are a clan of inspired performers who brighten up everybody’s lives with our brilliant and thoughtful performances of productions such as A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2003), Mort (2002), and The Magical Voyage of Ulysses (2003). We have an incredibly dedicated acting core supported by enormously creative and motivated technicians.
Our Artistic Director, Jan Green is retiring at the end the school year and we are, at the moment, trying to secure our future in negotiations with the school. She has been the driving force behind our group for it’s entire lifespan and we will miss her greatly. As she would say, though, the show must go on! We are currently in talks with the school about this happening.
Our school is currently going for Performing Arts status, which in many people’s opinions can only be helped by the continuation of our wonderful group. This is why we are trying so hard to keep negotiations with our school up and running. Please feel free to browse our site and post messages to our boards regardless of whether you have had any link to us before now.
We would be very grateful for all support offered to us and any help offered would be very graciously accepted no matter how big or how small. If you would like to contact me privately at all, I can be contacted with discretion by filling in the form below.
Hope you enjoy our site!
