Seeing the play ‘Through the Eyes of a Child’

Gabriel

Being part of a play is a very exciting and challenging task for anyone, but even more so when you are just 9 years old. Gabriel Coyne has been involved with The Poole Passion play for the past four years, and 2014 brings her a new opportunity to play the leading role of the child.

The exciting lead sees her walking the audience through the story of the last days of Jesus Christ from the perspective of a child. After standing in for the role for a number of weeks, Gabriel was eventually cast and is now very happy to be right in the centre of the story.

We caught up with Gabriel and her head teacher, Richard Warren to talk to them about being involved with Dorset’s largest community theatre production.
