Performing Arts at Sandbach is not just about the courses and curriculum but also about building a community. Over the course of the year, we stage numerous productions which give every year group the opportunity to be involved. We run a regular Year 7 Drama club to give younger students in KS3 their first experiences on the stage. Each year, the club stages a production, in the Theatre Space in front of an audience. This is usually during the Autumn Term.
In year 9, students are given the opportunity to take part in a Shakespeare production. We feel it is very important to tackle Shakespeare and to gain an understanding of the language he used as a playwright. It gives students the chance to experience Shakespeare as live action Drama rather than as a text to be read. Previous productions have included A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Macbeth, Henry V and Othello.
Year 8 are given the opportunity of performing in an original play. Each year we commission a new script especially for Year 8. Previous productions have included adaptations of Around the World in 80 Days and The Wind in the Willows.
Senior school students are given the opportunity of taking part in large scale productions, often as part of a festival such as National Connections.
In addition to extra curricular performances, students will prepare a performance for the Evenings of Dance and Physical Theatre. This is a large scale showcase of the work which students have undertaken in their Dance lessons.
We also feel it is really important for students to see live theatre. Throughout the year, our theatre club organises trips to see shows at The Lowry, The Regent Theatre, The Royal Exchange and The Palace Theatre in Manchester. Students are then able to use what they have seen to inspire their work in lessons.
