Drama workshop at The Royal & Derngate Theatre, Northampton

A group of Year 10 and Year 12 Drama students recently had a backstage tour and a workshop led by Drama practitioner Trudy Bell at The Royal and Derngate Theatre in Northampton, as part of their work towards "National Connections". 

The workshop focused on exploring how physical theatre techniques can be used to communicate narrative.

The group were able to feedback ideas and suggestions to the rest of the Year 10 Drama students on their return to school.

Thirty students are preparing "These Bridges" by Phoebe Eclair Powell, to be performed at Vandyke just before Easter and then it will transfer to The Royal Theatre in Northampton in early May.

This is a challenging and exciting venture for the students!
