In addition to the opportunities created as part of class Drama, children are given the opportunity to perform to an audience. All are encouraged to take part in our hugely popular productions in Year 4, 6 and 8. If a child is willing to devote time and energy then they will not be turned away, with auditions used solely to assign roles. Recent productions have involved ensemble work, choral speaking, music and dance.
For those older pupils who enjoy the technical side, there are also opportunities to play a part, operating lights, sound, prompting or screen projections.
Past productions have included:
Year 8 Musical Productions:
'The Lion King Junior'
'A Midsummer Night's Dream'
'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'
'The Monster That Ate 3B'
'The Dracula Rock Show'
Year 6 Productions:
'The Demon Headmaster' and 'The Fifty Year School Trip'
