A-level Drama group take the stage at The Lowry

A group of A-level Drama pupils got the chance to take the stage during a high-profile performance at a nationally renowned theatre.

The Lower Sixth Formers travelled to The Lowry Theatre in Salford on Wednesday, April 25, where they The National Theatre and Chichester Festival Theatre production of This House.

The visitors were then given the chance to become involved in the play as extras, where they took their seats as Members of the House of Commons throughout the hugely successful show directed by Jeremy Herrin.

During the performance, the group got some helpful hints from the cast to help them with their contribution to the play, and also posed for pictures on set to round off their unforgettable experience.

This is the latest in a series of educational visits put on by the department throughout the academic year, which gives each pupil the opportunity to learn from some industry leaders outside of the classroom to boost their studies.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “This experience was absolutely fantastic and I am sure it will stand them in extremely good stead in the coming months during what it a critical stage of their dramatic studies.

“Department head Mrs Crimes does a fantastic job of motivating and inspiring her pupils, and without her none of this would be possible.

“For this we are extremely grateful and I am sure the Lower Sixth Form group will echo these sentiments after this opportunity.”
