Performing Arts Enrichment
Any student interested in Performing Arts, from beginners to experienced students, can be part of Performing Arts enrichment. We create high quality shows and everyone involved feels part of something totally exciting. From mastering choreography ready for showtime to supporting with the music, sound and lighting, there are roles for everyone.
Performance enrichment is an opportunity to train and perform in Dance, Drama and Musical Theatre. You will be taught by professionals in their field, learn new skills and work in a company. You will be expected to attend all rehearsals, work well independently and as a company, and show commitment to all aspects of performing.
Stage Crafts enrichment provides all the technical needs for the College Productions, concerts, and events. We combine theoretical and practical sessions to gain a greater understanding of the technical side of theatre. There will be the opportunity to gain experience in a range of production roles such as costume design, prop making, stage management, lighting and sound.
Past productions have included, Sweeny Todd, How to Succeed in Business and Chicago. In 2019, we sold out the Brewhouse Theatre in Taunton for three nights with our production of ‘Chicago – High School Edition’.
“The stars shone brilliantly, but the smaller parts and chorus were all superb. Energetic, talented, and disciplined. All the unseen supporting crew must have been magnificent in order to deliver such a professional production. The choreography and dancing were spectacular. The whole thing was a joy.”
Chris Davies, CBE, DL, Youth Lead for Lord Lieutenant of Somerset representative.
“It was absolutely amazing and my goodness what talent they all have too. In today’s society of academia and ‘mental stress,’ it is lovely to see how the performing arts still thrive and enable students to excel and shine.”
Karen Wedlake, Headteacher of Trull Primary School.
We are very excited to announce our February 2022 show will be ‘Made in Dagenham’. Please view our events for news of when tickets are available.
Made in Dagenham is an inspiring story about the female machinists of the UK Ford factory who went on strike in 1968 to demand equal pay. Based on real events, with music by David Arnold, and lyrics by Richard Thomas, the musical premiered on the West End in 2014 at the Adelphi Theatre. In 2020 the Redwood Theatre was created at Huish giving students a professional stage to practice, perform and fall in love with Performing Arts, and we can’t wait for our students to take the stage.
