Drama Students Learn from Talented Professionals

posted 28 Nov 2017, 02:10 by
Students from Greenfield Community College were fortunate to gain valuable tuition from working professionals. On Wednesday 8th November both year 9 and year 10 GCSE Drama groups had the chance to work alongside professional actors and directors as part of their course.

Year 9 students worked with Shelley O'Brien from the Mad Alice Theatre Company, exploring ways to create drama. The group worked really well at using physical theatre and exploring personal experiences to shape a piece of drama.

The year 10 group were lucky enough to see 'Best in the World', a theatre piece by The Unfolding Theatre company, during their T4S sessions in school. Annie, who directed the piece, came in to work alongside year 10 on their devising unit of drama. It was great to see a different approach to devising and Annie gave the group a number of ideas about creating their pieces, which will now develop further into their GCSE course. The afternoon ended with a question and answer session. Annie was fantastic at working with the group and gave our young performers a number of exciting and creative ideas to take forward in the future.
