Sweeney todd


Year 12 A Level Drama and BTEC Performing Arts students attended the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester, this week to see the fantastic 'Sweeney Todd'. A very intense story, brilliantly acted, creative and inspiring, as always.

Year 11, 12 and 13 Drama and Performing Arts students had the fantastic opportunity of taking part in a Physical Theatre workshop today, run by Frantic Assembly. The students have since been able to create other performance work, following this session. Thank you for a great workshop Frantic Assembly!

Alder Grange and AG6 students from courses such as GCSE Performing Arts, BTEC Performing Arts Level 3 and A Level Drama took part in a Musical Theatre singing workshop today. They did such a fantastic job! We have some very talented and committed pupils. Who knows? We may see them in the West End or Broadway one day!



CEPA took Year 8 -13 to see a fantastic performance of 'Wicked' at the Palace Theatre in Manchester on this week.
Lots of wonderful and inspiring moments in the show - watch this space for our next CEPA trip!
