Remove Form GCSE drama students were lucky enough to work
with Splendid Theatre Company on Monday 14
March 2016. 

Head of Academic Drama, Mrs Antoinette Keylock invited
Splendid to work with the GCSE drama students, and the company managed to
create some exciting devised material in a short space of time. Founder member of
the company, Kerry Frampton and Scott Smith met the students and were impressed
with their creative energy. The students were asked to create some ‘brechtian’
songs and the workshop enhanced their understanding of gesture and status on
stage. 

Mrs Keylock commented, “It is always a pleasure to watch
the students work with professional companies, and they develop new skills so
quickly in a short space of time. The boys benefited from seeing the actors
perform live and can also use the show in their written GCSE paper.”

Splendid then took to the stage
that evening to perform ‘The Odyssey’ to a packed audience in The Quarry
Theatre.
