Bourne Grammar Sixthform students are still riding high after gaining a five star review for their production of Roald Dahl’s The Twits at this summer’s Edinburgh Fringe festival.

It was the fifth time that the school’s theatre company Incognito has performed at the Fringe giving students the chance to be part of the largest arts festival in the world.

This year’s show ran from August 10 and was a complete sell-out for all seven performances.

It received a five star and two four star reviews from the Fringe critics.

Head of drama, Nick Moxley, said: “I was very impressed by the students’ hard work and effort and proud too of what they achieved together as a company.”

The performers were all members of the school’s sixthform: Emily Kong, Imogen Barnes, Jordan McCormack, Dan Wade, Ali Brown, Oli Rushen, Pippa Atkinson, Katie Shales, Louie Parsons, Hannah Morton, Dom Bellamy and Harry Jervis.

As well as gaining valuable experience in performing, the students enjoyed immersing themselves in world-class theatre, dance, music, art and comedy that the Edinburgh Fringe offers.
