The Year 10 drama students were treated to a unique theatrical experience this week. We went to Runshaw College to watch a performance of “1984” by the college’s Professional Performance Programme students.
The play, adapted from George Orwell’s novel, was a powerful and thought-provoking production that left a lasting impression on the students. From the start, the performance had us captivated, with impressive lighting, sound effects and choreography that brought the dystopian world of “1984” to life.
The students were particularly impressed with the acting skills of the college’s Professional Performance Programme students. Their performances were nuanced and convincing, delivering the complex and thought-provoking themes of the play with precision and passion.
The trip to Runshaw College was a fantastic opportunity for the Year 10 drama students to witness professional-level theatre and gain insights into the world of theatre production. It also provided them with inspiration and motivation for their own drama studies.
The experience also highlighted the importance of exposing young people to different forms of theatre and the power of live performance to engage and challenge audiences. It is a testament to the value of partnerships between schools and colleges, which can provide students with unique educational opportunities that they might not otherwise have.
Overall, the trip was a resounding success and a memorable experience for all involved. The Year 10 drama students left Runshaw College feeling inspired and excited about the possibilities of theatre and performance, and we look forward to seeing what they will create in the future.
