"Dear (super talented) Harris Girls..."

BBC Arts and Entertainment Correspondent Brenda Emmanus has written a special letter to our Year 10 GCSE Drama students as they get ready to perform Much Ado About Nothing at The Albany in Deptford next week.

Brena EmmanusDear (super talented) Harris Girls

Firstly,  let me congratulate you on getting as far as ‘performance ready’ with your cool adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing. It shows that you have worked together as a team, listened to your tutors, and are expressing your wonderful creative talents. Pat yourselves on the back for that alone. 

I hope that you will use this opportunity to shine. Whether you are on stage performing, assisting backstage, or have created the outstanding costumes - you all have something special to share with your school, your community - and soon the big exciting world. 

Art and creativity plays a huge part in our personal growth. It can inspire, entertain and transform lives.  You are about to prove this.  Be a tight team. Be sisterly - take care of each other. Drop any negativity- it hurts you as much as the person on the receiving end. Learn from every experience and respect the teachers that have dedicated THEIR lives to making you a better person. 

Much Ado will be a great production - and your version sounds innovative and exciting. Knock em out with your show. Remember when God made you - he was showing off!!

I wish I could make it to support you but I am away developing myself on a course. You too must never give up learning. 

My last demand of you - you fabulous young students - is to genuinely say a big thank you and show gratitude to Ms Osborne. I know for a fact that she genuinely respects and cares about you all. Just trust me on this. 

Good luck with the production and the rest of your school lives. Let’s all meet at the top by being our best selves.

Love and best wishes

Brenda Emmanus
