A gifted performer has received a coveted award for his exceptional contribution to Rydal Penrhos’ Drama programme.
Joe Morrow, a Year 13 pupil at the school, scooped the Robson Cup for Best Performance in a Supporting Role at the second annual Creative and Performing Arts Dinner, which was held at the recently refurbished Sixth Form Ferguson Centre.
The Upper Sixth Former has made a lasting impression on the school’s Drama department, both during his A-level module and with the thriving Dramatic Society.
This included a notable contribution to last year’s RPS Showstoppers extravaganza which celebrated all things related to Musical Theatre, and Joe was at his brilliant best over a three-night period in March during the sensational Les Misérables production.
His extraordinary performance during the A-level examination was another impressive highlight, with Joe also leading by example during his final year as a pupil in the role of Prefect and House Captain.
He has also been a massive part of Rydal Penrhos’ rugby provision and earned representative honours for Cheshire as a result of his outstanding performances, with Joe receiving this particular award from Senior School Head Sally Ann Harding and Head of Drama Rachel Jones.
Mrs Harding, said: “Joe is a courteous, intelligent and hard-working individual who goes out of his way to help those around him, and these are traits that have ensured his time here at Rydal Penrhos has been an enormously successful one.
“His acting ability is absolutely incredible and Joe is thoroughly deserving of all the plaudits that come his way.”
