Auckland Theatresports Runners Up

September 20, 2016 at 1:12 PM

2016 was the ninth year in a row that the College Premier Theatresports team has made the Auckland Theatresports Grand Final, a great achievement considering that 22 schools compete for the four Grand Final places.

This year Saint Kentigern hosted the event in the Goodfellow Centre, which proved to be an exciting and versatile performance space for the four teams – Auckland Grammar, Northcote, Epsom Girls and Saint Kentigern – to battle it out.

Our Premier Team Dove Love, comprising Sam Elliott (captain), Kurt Hawkins, Josh Ellwood and Vincent Judson-Leitch were bold and gregarious in their play and very entertaining. Josh’s Powhiri in ‘Good Day Bad Day’ provided moments of inspired genius and Vincent’s ‘Collapsing Knees Superhero’ was equally hilarious.

However, the Auckland Grammar team were also in fine form on the night and were deserving champions with Saint Kentigern finishing in 2nd place.  For the fourth year in a row, Mr Sheehan was awarded Theatresports ‘Teacher of the Year’ for his dedication to the programme.
