On Thursday 15th March GCSE and A-Level Drama students went to the Vaudeville theatre to watch ‘Lady Windemere’s Fan’; an Oscar Wilde play directed by Kathy Burke and starring Jennifer Saunders. The trip was a huge success, giving students yet another wonderful opportunity to see live, professional theatre in the West End!
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 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!
