Lewisham College stages an awe-ful Christmas panto

Students put on a dazzling display for their Christmas panto – oh yes they did!

Lewisham College last week played host to six shows of their stage showpiece, The Awe-Ful Tale of Cinderella.

The performance was made all the more impressive with the fact they have only been at the institute since September.

Drama tutor Karla Ptacek said: “The most important thing to remember is that the majority of our actors are first year students and they’ve barely been here 12 weeks.

“They’ve got to sing, act, dance and have the right comic timing amongst 70 other students

“To pull that off is an incredible accomplishment and the audience are really loving it.

“It’s a win-win. We perform these for the community and our local schools, especially in Deptford, come every year and these students get to partake in a Christmas celebration.

“It builds links and we’re really proud of it.”
