This year we wanted to create a production that involved as many year groups across the school as possible. We found the perfect material in Grimm Tales. This production gives opportunities for performance to a large group of pupils ranging from Year 3 to Year 12. Also Year 13 A level Drama pupils have had the chance to develop their skills as Directors as they took the opportunity to work with Year 7 on Hansel and Gretel. Mr Whitfield and Mrs Asbury directed the other four short plays and the whole company came together to work on the song with the help of Mrs Maynard and Ms Kirkman.
The concept of the production is a group of punk ‘fairies’ who live in an enchanted forest and tell stories through drama. We are working in the style of physical theatre to tell our stories and this has been a challenge in rehearsal for all concerned. The physical detail needed to succeed in this style has been a steep learning curve and we hope that you will bear with us and our efforts, suspend you disbelief, and enjoy our humble but heartfelt production of GRIMM TALES!!
