We were fortunate to have an OV visit this week: Michael Nice (W 12-19 & King’s Hawford). Michael was home for the holidays, taking a short break from his History degree at Exeter University, and popped into School to catch up with Head of Drama and Hon OV Shara Parry.
While at King’s, Michael was Head of House yet somehow managed to find time to be on the Basketball and Swimming teams and be involved with a lot of school activities from Chess Club and CCF, to Kayaking, Young Enterprise and Duke of Edinburgh. However, much of Michael’s time was spent in the Drama department, which quickly became his second home!
Shara explained, “Michael is very much part of the King’s Drama family. He was an indispensable Assistant Director on many shows both while he was at School and when he returned during his Gap Year to volunteer with us. We really do miss him so it’s lovely to see him again!”
Michael added, “It’s great to be back at King’s, even for a short while. I was determined to make it in time to see We Will Rock You, so I finished a university seminar in the morning, grabbed the first train to Worcester and just made it – and it was worth it! Although I’m not doing a Drama degree, I’m still involved with the Drama Society at uni and can’t wait until we can do some proper productions of our own once restrictions allow, and put all the skills I learned at King’s to use!”
It was great to see you, Michael!
