Our GCSE and A Level Drama students had great fun last term taking part in our new masterclasses run by in house teachers and external practitioners working in the industry.
Students have had the chance to work with 2 professional theatre companies, Frantic Assembly and Gecko Theatre Company, on devising techniques using non naturalistic techniques. They have also worked with Caroline Swaby in a singing workshop and Urdang graduate, Kristian Cunningham on audition techniques.
The students have been able to workshop a number of musicals including Hamilton, Rent, Matilda & Sister Act with Mrs Maclaughlin & Miss Swaby, whilst also looking at other roles in the theatre by becoming lighting designers and make up artists in 2 hands on workshops with Mr Raffel and Mrs Doherty.
These masterclasses have been hugely successful and have been very well attended. They will be returning next spring with new practitioners and the students will again be able to dictate what they would like us to cover in these extra curricular sessions.
