As the name suggests it is open to students from Years 7-9. However, next term, as part of the ongoing plan to implement more drama activities at Primary level, we hope to welcome some year 6 students as well.
The club meets each week to enjoy a mixture of specific activities designed to improve the student’s drama skills, which then leads into planning a performance for the end of each half term. The students devise the performances by themselves with some oversight and support from staff.
Events happen all around the school, for example; their latest performance ‘Prepare to meet your doom ..’ which was performed on Tuesday, began on the bridge between the 2 buildings at APS, and ended in a drama room. The group sets no limits and do everything they can to make their ideas a reality. Audiences are often encouraged to participate in some way which adds to the fun for both performers and those watching.
