Friendship First Theatre
It was fabulous to welcome back some familiar faces to Prep as some of our Class of 2019 leavers now in Year 9 at the senior school returned to the Soderberg Hall with their Theatre in Education group. The cast of 15 pupils have taken a mixture of devised and scripted work based on the theme of friendship on tour to us and five local primary schools during lunchtimes this week. performing their TIE piece to pupils in Years 3 and 4. With lots of audience interaction, a cute play about animals helping each other, a catchy rap, comedy, sketches about the qualities needed to be a good friend and a song and dance for the audience to join in with at the end, the Third Year pupils did an amazing job of keeping their young audiences engaged as well as educating them at the same time. They received lots of lovely feedback from pupils and staff across the schools and the Drama Department can’t wait to take a new show on the road next year. Well done TIE Crew!
