On the 29th March our Year 12 Drama students performed to a large crowd, on a professional stage, at The Norwich Playhouse as part of the Springboards 2017 Drama Platform programme. For the last term, as part of their A Level course, the Attleborough students have been creating a piece of theatre, utilising techniques they have learnt from Drama technicians such as Brecht and Frantic Assembly. The students chose to focus their research and theatre performance on issues relating to the current refugee crises. Their research was further inspired by visits to the academy of experts in the field: a young doctor who has worked recently as a medic in refugee camps, and a sea rescuer for a charity aimed at saving the lives of refugees who are fleeing across dangerous waters to avoid wars.
Congratulations are due to the AAN Drama students who, gave two moving and highly engaging performances to the Norwich Playhouse audience; they presented only part of the final pieces that they will now perform for their final assessed examination pieces in April. This will take place in the AAN Drama Studio on the 21st April at 3.30 pm.
