Theatre Trips this term

We are running a number of theatre trips this term to give pupils the chance to see the very best theatre available locally. So as not to interrupt lessons, these trips are generally run after school. If you would like to secure a place on one or more of these trips for your child –or possibly for yourself - please email me on john.carr@anselms.co.uk. Tickets are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

We would urge pupils considering a drama scholarship or those with imminent senior school interviews to sign up for at least one of these trips. However, we would encourage all pupils from Y5 to Y8 to consider seeing one of these productions.

    ‘The White Devil’ by John Webster at The Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, on Thursday 18th September. By popular request, and because of the play’s content, our first theatre trip this term is for parents only. This production of Webster’s Jacobean tragedy has been well reviewed by the critics:

'Maria Aberg's modern-dress revival is sharp-paced and gripping'

 'Kirsty Bushell's admirably defiant Vittoria…David Sturzaker's ardent Bracciano'
Daily Telegraph

'Striking, pacey, exuberantly debauched. A blast'
'Kirsty Bushell's knowing, riveting Vittoria…Laura Elphinstone's gutsy performance'
Sunday Times

'It is packed with strong performances and commands your attention'

The Guardian

The production starts at 7.30pm and transport to Stratford and back is available. Tickets cost £23 and we only have nine of them so please contact me as soon as possible to secure yours.

Our next trip is again to Stratford to see a new production - ‘Love’s Labours Lost’ – at the start of its run on 23rd September in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. We have fifteen tickets for pupils at the much reduced cost of £15.The performance begins at 7.15pm.

    On Thursday 9th October all Y7 pupils will be going to see ‘Twelfth Night’ at The Crucible Theatre in Sheffield. This will be the culmination of their study of this play in English lessons this half term.
    Next half term, we will be taking fifteen pupils to see ‘Love’s Labours Won’ or – as it is usually known – ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ on Thursday 6th November at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford.
    We are hoping to take fifteen pupils to see ‘Cinderella’ performed by Northern Ballet at the Lyceum Theatre in Sheffield on Thursday 27th November.
