Frantic Assembly Drama Workshops

On Monday 27 January we were delighted to welcome Jonnie Riordan from the award-winning Frantic Assembly Theatre Company, who delivered two exhausting but exhilarating workshops on devising and physical theatre.


The 4th Year Drama GCSE pupils enjoyed two hours of pushing, pulling and lifting to VERY loud music – culminating in some fantastic performances, which demonstrated an enormous rate of progress over a very short period of time. Later in the day, the cast of The Mobile Phone Show – this term’s Senior Play – were treated to a similarly invigorating Master Class, inspiring many ideas which will be developed in rehearsals over the next few weeks before the show.


Many thanks to both Jonnie and all the participants for their infectious enthusiasm and hard work.


Johanna Egar

Director of Drama
