‘DNA’ at the National Youth Theatre

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!

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

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.

A level theatre trip

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!

Drama Festival 2017

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’.
