Last October, Ysgol Gyfun Emlyn’s Performing Arts Department truly surpassed itself with their production of Bye Bye Birdie, which played to packed houses each night. The dancing, singing and acting talent showcased was really something to see and the community spirit forged between pupils in Years 7-13 made the show so much more than “just a school play”. The cast and crew alike have had experiences that they’ll never forget and would like to extend their gratitude to everyone who came along to support their friends, family and fellow students. Special thanks should go to Mr Davies and Miss Keane for contributing their time and energy to make the show the best that it could be, and for enthusing the cast, even during late night practises. Bye, Bye Birdie – why d’you have to go?
