YEAR 13 STUDENTS DIRECT THEIR OWN IMPRESSIVE DRAMA WORK AT THE GEORGIAN THEATRE ROYAL
As a part of their Directing unit, Year 13 students staged a showcase of their own work at the Georgian Theatre Royal. The group were challenged to direct a scene each from a Shakespeare play that features a strong female character. The students were given total creative freedom for their interpretations, and they produced an impressive array of works: some modernised the original language, while others chose to use the scene as a stimulus to explore themes important to them.
All the pieces shown were scripted, directed and performed by the group and they were also responsible for all the technical elements, including lighting, sound, set and costume.
Danni Manning, Lead Teacher for Drama, said: “The students have worked incredibly hard to pull together a polished showcase and they should be so proud of the work they have created. What a fantastic way to end their time at Richmond School & Sixth Form College.”
