Before the Christmas holiday’s pupils in year 7 experienced the delights of a British pantomime. The whole year went to see Beauty and the Beast at the Shaw Theatre. Pupils will be studying the genre of pantomime in their weekly drama lesson, Oh Yes they will! Exploring performance skills such direct address, audience participation, exaggeration, stock characters and productions elements such as lighting, sound and costume through their own pantomime script.
Having a first-hand experience of a pantomime allows all our pupils to underline their performance skills with knowledge not only of theatre studies but also of British culture.
