The Drama Department had a visit this term from Scarborough’s very own  Magic Mike!

Mike visited a number of Year 7 lessons to give students an introduction to puppetry using characters from his stage show including Oscar, Chuck and Carlos.

After taking part in the workshop, which included skills such as creating a character, working together and voice work, the students in Year 7 were able to put on their own puppet shows which were performed in class.

The puppet shows featured fantasy characters such as a dragon, a fairy, a mermaid, elves and a witch and required a lot of imagination and    creativity.

Two students, Phoebe Newham and Layal Ahmed Ali received a Director’s Commendation for their work and Miss Price described it is as “the best puppet show I have ever seen!”
