Drama students take trip to London

A group of drama students embarked on a theatrical trip to London.

On the itinerary was the Royal Opera House where the group had a look around inside one of the large rehearsal rooms, saw the set of La Traviata, all courtesy of the friendly fight director, Simon Johns who guided their tour.

En route, they did some quick sightseeing of Trafalgar Square, before an evening performance of Touching the Void, which is a stage adaptation of the famous true story of mountaineer Joe Simpson who survived falling down inside a glacier in the Andes with a broken leg.

Additionally there was a visit to the street used as Diagon Alley, a picture opportunity outside the Duke of York’s Theatre for an evening performance, and a visit to the world famous Pineapple Dance Studios before our dance workshop with a member of the Matilda cast, with a grand finale of watching Matilda.
