In May 2022, RLS Productions returned after 2 years of (Covid related) absence to bring delighted audiences C.H.I.P.S. and The Sad Club.
C.H.I.P.S. (City Hall Inclusive Preservation Society), by Simon Harvey, told the tales and rumours of Truro City Hall’s rich history through the eyes of ‘Nigel’ the foreman in charge of demolition of the hall and construction of the new Hall for Cornwall.
This is a quirky, fun and humorous play, which was performed so well by our Year 7 Drama Club, who had been directed by Year 9 Drama Leaders. The audience learned of an embarrassing visit by a member of the royal family which resulted in Truro City Council being sworn to secrecy and a certain door remaining locked for 30 years; that international rock stars—Queen—actually played their first gig at Truro City Hall and that the venue also played a vital part in the suffragist fight for votes for women.
It was fantastic to see our newest students take to the stage with such confidence and skill and wonderful to welcome their families back into school to experience this rich and vital part of the culture here at Richard Lander School.
