Phebe Mason international star
Phebe Mason has proved that she is not just a whiz at Shakespeare.
The three-time Auckland Central SGCNZ representative and outstanding performance winner was awarded one of only five Outstanding Scholarships in drama for 2020.
The exam is an intense practical experience that involves performing a contemporary monologue from an established playwright, a monologue that the candidate has written and an improvisation task. Phebe delivered a multi-lingual programme; a self-devised piece using the love letters of Frieda Kahlo performed in both Spanish and English, then another with a perfect Welsh accent.
Over the holidays Phebe also achieved the highest mark internationally for her Grade 7 Trinity speech and drama exam - an amazing set of results all round, especially under the restrictions of 2020. We can't wait to see what she will do this year!
