Outside Performance of ‘At the Bridge’ by Adrian Wood

Drama in the Open

Earlier this term 21 Year 9 and 10 Gifted and Talented Drama students took part in an outside performance of ‘At the Bridge’ by Adrian Wood.   The performance took place at Gore Farm in Trent and centred around an old stone bridge. The students had spent 3 months rehearsing and composing the music for the event which then culminated in all day rehearsals and an evening performance.   Throughout the rehearsal process students developed the story using their own ideas and acting skills.  They worked closely with Adrian Wood to compose the musical accompaniment in which the students took on roles of instrumentalists and singers. The evening’s performance was a fantastic success.  The students performed extremely well and the sun came out for us! The performance was truly magical! The whole event was an excellent learning experience for the students; it enabled them to develop their dramatic skills and also gave them opportunity to perform in an exquisite location.
