Performing Arts Students from Years 8, 9 and 10 took part in a musical theatre workshop facilitated by a professional actor from the Mayflower Theatre.
The work will eventually form part of a b rand new musical in 2020 about Southampton and The Mayflower’s (ship) original journey to America in the 1700s. The theatre is visiting several schools in Southampton, but our workshop was the first, of the journey towards devising the brand new show.
The group discussed the importance of the journeys we take in our lives and then they explored a song from a film linked to the theme.
The group then created a series of tableaux and scenes about leaving and the reasons behind them.
It was an excellent workshop and we look forward to the show being developed over the next two years.
