National Theatre Performance
Kingsway Park High School were proud to host the prestigious National Theatre last week, who gave two performances of ‘The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time’ as part of the National Theatre schools’ tour.
The performances were amazing: quality drama which was both entertaining and thought-provoking with both the students and staff talking about it for days afterwards. Over 400 Year 8 and 10 students were able to watch the performance. It really did create a buzz around school and was an amazing experience for the students and the staff.
Guests who also attended the performance included: KPHS Chair of Governors, representatives from The Lowry Theatre in Salford and Oldham Coliseum Theatre.
After the performance, the students discussed the show during their Drama lessons with some students sharing their own personal experiences of autism, stating that they loved the humour and physical theatre.
Liz Phillips, of Kingsway Park High School, commented that she was extremely proud to host the National Theatre, ‘’students were able to experience quality Drama and their fantastic response made all the hard work worth it’.
Through Live Nation, Kingsway Park High School has a three-year partnership with the National Theatre and The Lowry, with this being Year 2. The school look forward to other exciting opportunities for their students next year.
