Drama and Music students, from years 7,8,9,10,11 and 12 travelled down to London very early Saturday morning ready for a day in London.
After an afternoon visiting Covent Gardens, students enjoyed an Italian meal before heading to the Shaftsbury Theatre to see the evening production of ‘Motown: the Musical’.
All students loved seeing the production and appreciated all elements involved in the performance; Acting, singing, lighting, costumes and the orchestra.
The following day the group took part in a workshop linking to the performance. They learnt part of a song from the show and learnt how to perform the number. We then had a talk from the Musical Director, Mark with a Q & A session about his experiences within the industry.
To finish the day, students visited the National History Museum; having a couple of hours exploring the variety of exhibitions taking place before heading back to school.
A fantastic time was had by all. For more details of this trip and future trips please speak to Mrs Howell.
