Stage-ed Workshop

Posted on Mar 13, 2018

Year 11 Drama students took part in an all-day workshop on Thursday 8 March run by theatre company Stage-ed.  The day focussed on the musical ‘Blood Brothers’ by Willy Russell, which the students have been studying as part of their Drama GCSE.  The students spent time working through the play, understanding the historical context of the story, learning about the playwright and acting out scenes under the guidance of west end professional Mike Southern, who appeared in the show in the West End for 10 years.

The workshop gave students an opportunity to gather a deeper understanding of the play practically, which will be of great benefit in their upcoming written exam.
