Best Leading Female at Showdowns!

October 27, 2017 at 4:49 PM

Each year the Auckland Showdown judges have the mammoth task of watching dozens of Auckland Secondary School drama and musical productions in order to determine the most outstanding students and staff in a variety of categories. Run by the Auckland Community Theatre Trust and presented at SkyCity Theatre, the Awards Night brings together the best performing artists and technical crews from across the city. 

This year, the Senior College Productions, ‘Les Miserables’ and ‘Pride and Prejudice’ were nominated in 22 acting and technical categories for the final round of judging. At the Awards last night, we were absolutely delighted when our leading lady from Pride and Prejudice, Year 12 student, Stephanie Ramlose was awarded Best Leading Female in a Drama Production. Stephanie was faultless in her portrayal of the strong-willed Elizabeth Bennet, taking ownership of the role. 

Fellow actor Jordan Rogers-Jenkins was also awarded on the night with Best Male in a Minor Role for his portrayal of Sir William Lucas in Pride and Prejudice, a role he played with flamboyance and pizzazz. 

Congratulations to both these students and all the other nominees for their commitment to the Performing Arts at the College.
