13 Jan Theatre Trip
Year 9 drama students were treated to their first GCSE theatre trip in January. We travelled to The Apollo Victoria Theatre to see the long-running spectacular ‘Wicked’. This extravagant musical re-tells the story of the Wizard of Oz from the point of view of the ‘Wicked’ witch of the west. Having watched the film in lessons the Year 9 students could really see how clever the story is and that it really does change your perspective of the film. With life-affirming messages about racism, oppression and judging others, the students were really able to look deeper into the theatrical form.
Every single Yr 9 drama student attended the trip and all showed exemplary behaviour – so much so that members of the public commented on how wonderful it was to see the group at the theatre.
Dates for your diary: Year 13 A level drama students will be performing their Unit 3 devised piece of theatre in the studio at 6:30pm on Tuesday 7th February. It should be thought-provoking and exciting piece, please do come along. Contact Mrs Tomlinson for more details.
