On Wednesday 23rd May the Drama Department took a group of GCSE and A-level Drama students to see ‘Chicago’ at the Phoenix Theatre in London. The show starred Cuba Gooding Jnr and was thoroughly enjoyed by students and staff!
On Tuesday 14th November Ms Findlay-Goddard organised to take 30 Year 10 GCSE Drama students to see the long-running ‘Woman in Black’ at the Fortune Theatre, Covent Garden. Students had a fantastic time watching the dark and thrilling play, with a number jumping at some of the most tense and scary moments!
On Tuesday 13th June, Ms Findlay had organised for a group of Year 9 Drama students to see a production of ‘DNA’ at the National Youth Theatre studios in Holloway Road. The show was performed in the round, with some very clever use of lighting and sound to create atmosphere; this has given the students a lot to think about when it comes to their own practical work in Drama lessons!
On Wednesday 26th April the Drama department took a group of A-level and GCSE students to see ‘Don Juan in Soho’ starring David Tennant. It was an incredible performance that both students and staff thoroughly enjoyed.
A level students visit The Young Vic for A Midsummer Night’s Dream:
“…there’s a deviant, mind-altering drollery running through this production that I found delicious. It’s going to divide audiences. Count me among the yea-sayers.” – The Independent.
On Wednesday 29th March Ms Findlay, Mr Wilson and Ms Truesdale took Year 10 GCSE Drama students on a matinee trip to see ‘The Miser‘ starring Griff Rhys Jones, Matthew Horne and Lee Mack. The show was hilarious and the students really enjoyed this experience!
On Tuesday 21st March Ms Findlay and Mr Wilson took the Year 13 A-Level Drama class to see a modernised version of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ at the Young Vic Theatre, London. The production included a stage floor made entirely of mud, and mirror walls at the back of the stage; this was an incredible performance and the students thoroughly enjoyed it!
Thank you on behalf of the Drama Department to the friends, family and teachers of Year 9 Drama students who attended this year’s Drama Festival. The night showcased some amazing talent from year 9 students who performed their monologue or duologue performances studied during their Drama lessons. They have made us all incredibly proud and have received glowing praise from those who came along to watch! Money raised from the event will be going to ‘Refuge’.
Congratulations to the Drama department and all of our talented young actors who entertained us all last week with the school production, A Christmas Calamity in Dimbleby. Thank you to all who attended and helped to raise £235 for Great Ormand Street Hospital.
We look forward to seeing you at the School Production of A Christmas Calamity in Dimbleby on 1st and 2nd December at 6.45pm.
