Performing Arts Enrichment
If you are creative and passionate about performing then there are opportunities open to all students to get involved. We create high quality shows and everyone involved feels part of something totally exciting. Support is provided by our Music, Sound and Lighting Departments as you master choreography ready for showtime.
Performing Arts enrichment is the coming together of students across the College, working together as a team to give a performance of a lifetime! It a great place to have fun, be creative and make new friends. It also gives you added performance opportunities for those of you looking at pursuing performing arts in the future.
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. Stage Crafts is open to all from beginners to experienced students
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’. In 2020 the Redwood Theatre was created at Huish giving students a professional stage to practice, perform and fall in love with Performing Arts. We can’t wait for our next production!
“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.
