Careers in Theatre!

Students from the BTEC Performing Arts classes spent a whole day at the Half Moon Theatre in Limehouse working with industry professionals in varying disciplines including lighting, design, stage management, sound and performance to create a fantastic piece of theatre in just one day! This was based on an exciting extract from a script currently in development at the theatre. Students drew on their creativity and worked alongside professionals gaining knowledge and experience of the work that goes on behind the scenes to create a professional performance.

Tahsin from Year 9 said, “I would definitely consider a career in theatre after this experience, not just because of how fun it was but because I would love to do it as a job and now I can consider other things like lighting and not just acting.”
