|Stylish Opening for Headmaster Porter Theatre
Last Updated: Sunday, 26 November 2006
A good handful of Old Framlinghamians, local dignitaries, College and Brandeston students packed into the new Headmaster Porter theatre in the Athlone Hall on Tuesday 14th November to see the Earl of Wessex unveil a plaque commemorating the event.
Update 26th November - Registered Members can view one of the Scenes via the associated story on Les Miserables - but only after logging in. The Earl & Countess arrived at mid-day to be greeted by flag-waving children from Brandeston, and were then entertained in the Chapel by members of the Choir and Choral Society.
They then moved down to the Athlone Hall, where Tony Lawrence introduced two carefully selected and highly entertaining scenes from Les Miserables, which will be the first production in the new theatre.
The Earl was very complimentary about the quality of the production, saying something along the lines, "if you're this good two weeks before the opening, then you're going to be brilliant by opening-night".
Also at the opening were two executors of the Stanley Porter Will Trust - without whose help the project would not have been possible.
