It’s been an eventful term!
Full of performances, assemblies and workshops. The drama team completed a fantastic primary schools tour, performing their show ‘The Great Fairy Tale Mix Up’ to approximately 3,700 children 21 times in 17 different venues. This includes 4 new schools who’d never seen the drama team perform before. We received this comment from a head teacher in one of those schools:
“The performance was outstanding: engaging all children and delivering key messages based on respect for each other and British Values. Our children are still ‘buzzing’ about it and discussing the concepts – which is when you know a performance has had a true impact! Well done to the performers; who clearly have a real flair and talent.”
We are amazingly proud of the work they’ve done!
The theatre company have delivered a number of drama workshops, taught assemblies to the drama team, delivered smaller drama projects such as the story of the Prodigal Son for Shrewsbury Abbey and Solihull Catholic Schools and performed ‘Elmer’, ‘Ctrl-Alt-Delete’, ‘It’s Complicated’ and ‘Carol’ in primary and secondary schools and church venues. They have been so busy. In fact, they’re still performing! You can catch a performance of ‘Carol’ at 7.30pm on Saturday 17th December at Stirchley Baths. More information here.
We are so conscious that all this cannot be achieved without the amazing support we receive from you! We thank God for all your support, encouragement, hospitality, care, prayer and general cheerfulness. It keeps us going and there’s so much more to come in 2017!
May you have a fun-filled, festive Christmas and be blessed with all energy, creativity and grace for the year ahead!
