Blood Brothers Trip (Wednesday 26th September 2018)

On Wednesday 26th September 2018, the Performing Arts department took 40 Year 11 GCSE drama students to watch Blood Brothers in the Grand Theatre in Swansea. Blood Brothers tells the story of twins separated at birth who both go on to lead two very different lives. They meet again as children and become life-long friends not realising that they are twin brothers.

As part of their GCSE course, pupils have to watch a live production in order to write a Live Theatre Review in Section B of their Unit 3 exam. The department selected this production due to its use of a multitude of theatrical techniques; mutli-rolling, comedy, lighting and sound, song, costume, etc. The pupils definitely had plenty to write about judging by the pages and pages of notes they took in the theatre during the performance.

It was a fantastic production enjoyed by everyone - it even had a few of the pupils and Mrs Watkins in tears! Behaviour was fantastic and the department are so pleased that pupils enjoyed the trip.

Please see the below link for some of the pictures that were taken during the trip.
