This term we have been working on the Ancient Greek Epic, Agamemnon. As always, this has been a two way process with the young actors bringing in their ideas and writing, combined with our direction. It’s been a great term with many discussions, games and focused rehearsals. This term’s show is very much a work in progress with extracted scenes from the story. Our aim is to be able to tell the whole story at the end of next term!

Tickets for the night are £2 for adults and £1 for children. These will go towards covering the costs of the night. Any surplus will go towards our charity fund.
