On Monday 9th October, a group of 24 GCSE Drama students travelled to the Floral Pavilion in New Brighton for their company workshop with industry professionals. A great day was had in which students developed their physical theatre sequences for their performance of ‘Romeo and Juliet’, which will be staged on 27th November 2017.
On Wednesday 4th October, Miss May, Miss Larkin and Miss Yates took a group of Year 11 and Year 9 students to see a performance of ‘Things I Know to be True’ by Frantic Assembly theatre company. We saw the performance at The Lowry Theatre in Manchester and I think it is safe to say that everybody loved it (even after the tears due to the emotional performances)! Students were all an absolute credit to OCA and we were proud as members of staff as they represented the school.
