From Physical Theatre to Puppetry

From Physical Theatre to Puppetry, exciting new things are happening in Forest Theatre.

Here are some of our Year 13s experimenting with making puppets out of pillowcases and giving them life! We have also been playing with the devising techniques of theatre companies Frantic Assembly, Complicite, Gecko and Rash Dash which has produced some brilliant short pieces. Keep your eyes peeled for more thrilling opportunities to get involved!

Don’t miss The Government Inspector coming to you this term, and the bizarre world of Wonderland is beginning to take shape ready for next term’s production of Laura Wade’s Alice.

Looking further ahead to next year, we will be adding a whole-school musical to the calendar with plenty of opportunities to get involved both on and off stage!

With House Drama around the corner, rehearsals are well and truly under way. This year the competition has stepped up with the introduction of the first nail-biting knockout round for the girls. We can’t wait to witness the creativity of the final performances in just a few weeks!
