The inaugural performance took place at Lewisham College to celebrate All Hallows Eve, the first of the year for the College’s performing and production art students. The show entirely created by the learners included a promenade performance where attendees heard tales of a terrifying vampire, murderous myths and grisly legends.
This showcase of work is the outcome of the UAL Level 3 performing and production arts students first main project. Led by experienced teachers, the learners operated as a professional theatre company and covered a variety of production skills related to theatrical performance and the art of shadow puppetry. From stage, lighting and costume preparation to building props and selecting the sounds, music and stories to bring their creation to live.
The students worked on-stage and behind the scenes to stage a rollicking rollercoaster ride of terror, thrills and scary treats.
Asfa Sohail, Principal at Lewisham College, attended the show along with other students and staff members. She said: “I was delighted to see our talented students on the stage, and the results of our new creative arts and performing and production arts provision so early in the academic year.
“We are very excited to be working in partnership with Rose Bruford College to deliver these courses to help our students reach their full potential and become well rounded and skilled creative professionals.”
This new creative arts provision at Lewisham College is delivered in partnership with Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance.
