Year 10 GCSE Debut Drama Performances!
The Year 10 GCSE Drama students performed their own Theatre in Education plays about child safety to Year 6 pupils from St Peter’s Primary School and Minterne Primary School on Tuesday 20th March.
The plays were written and performed by the Year 10 students and were based on a variety of issues such as road safety, stranger danger, cyber bullying and fire safety. The students gave entertaining and memorable performances in such roles as ‘Dangerous Dan,’ ‘Naughty Norman,’ ‘Innocent Izzy’ and ‘Creepy Clyde.’
The performers interacted with the audience and encouraged the students to join in and help the characters make the right decisions in the play. At key points in the plays, the Year 6 pupils were asked to vote for what the characters should do next and offer advice or ask questions about the issues presented.
The Year 10 students worked very hard to prepare themselves for their debut public performances by doing extra rehearsals after school and at lunchtimes. They also sourced and made their own costumes and props, which looked great and really gave the pieces a professional look.
The primary school pupils were thoroughly engaged and absorbed by the performances and responsive to the messages within the plays. The event was thoroughly enjoyed by all involved and gave the Year 10 students vital experience in performing to a public audience. Well done Year 10 Drama Students!
