A Happy Day at the Royal Exchange

On Thursday 7th June the Year 10 GCSE Drama classes attended a workshop and performance at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester. The pupils worked for 2 hours creating highly imaginative performances on the stage in the Royal Exchange’s main theatre. They explored the challenges of performing ‘in the round’ in this renowned space preparing them for their forthcoming examined work.

The pupils were lucky to explore the set of Maxine Peake’s current production of ‘Happy Days’ which they watched following the workshop. This was a fantastic opportunity for all pupils who had a real insight in to the world of the theatre enhancing their creativity beyond the classroom.
