Drama and music to fund Rwanda trip
TO help raise funds towards the Shaftesbury 6th Form student ambassadors' visit to Rwanda in July, Jerome Swan is reprising his praised entry to the festival of one act plays held at Shaftesbury Arts Centre in March, this time with a cast entirely of students from Shaftesbury School.
An Incident at the Border is a sharp satirical look at authority and ducks; and Elinor Tolfree, well known local musician and music teacher, is co-ordinating the second half of the evening featuring local musicians including Megan Booth, Saxophony, St James Folk and George and Ed Lee.
All involved from performers to technical staff and helpers are kindly donating their time without charge.
Shaftesbury School has been developing strong links with Rwanda over the last few years, in connection with the Msaada charity founded by Fergal Keane in response to the tragedy of the genocide of the 1990s.
