Pupils visit local Theatre
A number of Stewards Academy drama students visited Harlow Playhouse to view the interesting and engaging Contexture Theatre production of ‘Mother Courage and her children’ on Thursday 29th September.
A thought-provoking and challenging performance gave students a real taste of Brechtian theatre and left them questioning the purpose of war and the role of the protagonist throughout.
One student said: “I really enjoyed Mother Courage because it had a tense storyline as well as excellent actors who communicated with the audience.”
Miss Johnson, Head of Performing Arts, said: “It is so important that students engage with a range of theatrical experiences and are open to different styles of performance. We are lucky to have access to high-quality performances in our local theatre.”
