Y9 Perform at CAST Doncaster
On 28th June, students from year 9 took to the stage to perform in front of a live audience at Cast Theatre in Doncaster.
The class have been working with theatre professionals from Cast and the National Theatre to co-create performance art that addresses issues they wanted to ‘Speak Up’ about. Their performance addressed inequality, social divide, the media’s depiction of young people which they felt wasn’t always a positive, or accurate representation and highlighted how people often felt like they didn’t feel like their voices were heard.
The group have been working with a range of professionals since September, which included Samuel Elskrine from Sheffield Theatres, Sara Jackson, Lizzy Whynes & Philippa Walusimbi from Cast Theatre. We have been really privileged to be able to work with a range of professionals. The students who have been involved have been a joy to work with and should be incredibly proud of their input to the project and of their amazing final performance on stage.
