It is with great pride that we congratulate our former student, Will Bradley, on winning the main character role in Shepherd Mead’s play ‘How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying’. The performance took place over three days at the Lowry Theatre in Manchester.
It is unusual that the School Award for Outstanding Achievement in Drama is awarded twice to the same student, but Will Bradley was fully deserving of this honour. Will performed in a wide range of roles as a student at St Christopher’s including the role of Davies in The Caretaker by Harold Pinter, the role of Brian in DNA by Denis Kelly, the roles of Mr Basford and Salty in Teechers by John Godber, the student in Strindberg’s The Father, a range of roles in Martin Crimp’s Attempts on her Life and the role of a student on the barricades in Les Misérables where his singing voice was first identified before assuming the lead role of Arvide Abernathy in the School production of Guys and Dolls. Will delighted his audiences at school and it is little surprise to hear of his developing an exciting career on the professional stage.
