Ten year anniversary of ‘Play in a Week’

Victoria Park Primary School celebrated its 10 year anniversary of working with the Travelling Light Theatre Company to produce a ‘Play in a week’. 

The Company works with Year 3 students and pupils pitch, rehearse and perform a play all in the space of five days. The first step is the pitch where the students share their ideas with a scriptwriter who writes up a script that attempts to cram in as many of the pupil’s ideas as possible. Creativity is very much encouraged and this year’s play features the pairing of the stone age and the modern skateboard! The pupils then choose whether they want to be actors, musicians, dancers, designers, and more, developing the play over a week before performing to a live audience at the Creswell Theatre at BCCS on the Friday.
