Tutor group 8A attended Behind the Brand insight trip at the Prince Edward theatre. This consisted of a technical workshop in the theatre, whilst the preparations were taking place for the matinee performance. This included a range of technicians showing the various stages of what is involved in the production of Mary Poppins. The pupils were really engaged and asked so many incisive questions. The theatre staff were very impressed with their enthusiasm and knowledge.
This was followed by lunch in nearby Soho Gardens, before the full matinee performance of Mary Poppins which was a fantastic experience enjoyed by all and with more of an awareness of how some of the technical skills demonstrated earlier were used in this performance. All pupils behaved in an exemplary manner at all times.
