Harry scoops Director of Drama Award for Best Supporting Role

A committed pupil at Rydal Penrhos has received a special award for his overall contribution throughout the academic year.

Harry Hackman, a Year 12 pupil at the school, was presented with the Director of Drama Award for Best Supporting Role at the second annual Creative and Performing Arts dinner prior to the Easter break.

The Lower Sixth Former has been a hugely influential figure of the enormous success of Rydal Penrhos’ thriving Drama provision, which included a starring performance in numerous roles during the sensational Dramatic Society production of Les Misérables.

His dedication to the school’s Speech and Drama programme has been another standout feature of his overall success, which included a hilarious performance during their recent Comedy Night.

Harry received his distinction from Head of Drama Rachel Jones and Senior School Head Sally Ann Harding, and was also given a rousing ovation from parents, staff and pupils in attendance.

Mrs Harding, said: “Harry is such a selfless individual and this has really come to the fore this year during his adaptability to so many different roles that have showcased what a wonderful acting talent he possesses.

“He is a much-loved and valued member of the Sixth Form community here at Rydal Penrhos, and he is thoroughly deserving of an award which is a testament to his ongoing progression as part of our incredible Performing Arts provision.”
