Getting Back to Show Business

Year 9 pupils had the chance to watch a matinee performance of ‘The Lion King’ and were finally able to experience some live theatre again. All the pupils represented the school amazingly and thoroughly enjoyed the show!

On the 23rd of March we took 20 of our AMAZING Year 9 students to see ‘The Lion King’ at the Lyceum Theatre. Since the pandemic, many theatres had to close and had a horrific effect on the Creative Arts industry, it was a fantastic opportunity to allow students to finally step back into London theatres and give them a chance to watch some live theatre. Many of these students have shown a keen interest in Drama, whether it be acting or lighting/costume/set design and were really impressed with this famous musical. The pupils represented the school amazingly and it was an absolute delight to take them on this well deserved trip!
