On 27th September 2017, Year 5 went to the Old Rep Theatre to practise their play ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ that they will be performing their on Thursday November 2nd 2017. Here are some of the thoughts and comments the children made:
When we went to The Old Rep theatre I learnt that we could ‘cheat our feet’ to look more professional on stage. This means that you can move your feet and body to look like you are looking at the other actors but also the audience. I enjoyed getting to know the other schools that we will be working with . – Mai-An
When I went on stage I learnt not to go to the ‘actor magnet’. This is the back of the stage. We must always come to the front of the stage when performing otherwise nobody in the audience can hear you. The hardest thing was interacting with the other school as I didn’t know them. It was soon fine though. -Maya
The teachers at the Rep taught me how to speak loudly and clearly. They told us this was called ‘landing your lines’. – Tyla
The Old Rep was so much fun. If you look in the slideshow you will see our top 5 tips. These will definitely help us with our performance.-Benedict
I loved the acting games we played. They were very silly and they made us laugh but also taught us how to act properly.
Top Tip number 1: Land your lines.
Top Tip number 2: Cheat your feet.
Top Tip Number 3: Avoid the actor magnet.
Top Tip number 4: The kiss or kill position
