Our Performing Arts students have entertained students (and teachers!) from North Farnborough Infant School
The school visited the College to watch our students’ performance of Bedtime Tales – an exciting mix of favourite tales with music, laughter and adventure.
Our students devised, created and performed Bedtime Tales as part of their course, focusing on Children’s Theatre.
Performing Arts lecturer Dominique Simpson is incredibly proud of both cast and production teams for this creative and fun filled show. She said:
“The Performing Arts students worked together to create a devised piece of theatre. The first year students auditioned for their characters and have been working hard on transferring their skills, to ensure they are ready for the challenge of children’s theatre.
“The second year students were interviewed for jobs roles within the production team and they have worked hard to audition, create and set this amazing, devised piece of children’s theatre.”
Student Director Bradley Dry said:
“It has been a pleasure to direct a show for the first time and gain experience working behind the scenes.
“I realise now how much work goes into creative process, something which I before took for granted.
“I now have a lot more respect for the people who work behind the scenes and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience”.
North Farnborough Infant School teacher Sarah Holland said:
“What an adventure! Farnborough College of Technology students invited the whole of North Farnborough Infant School to see their production entitled ‘Bedtime Tales’.
“The children were treated to a selection of traditional tales which included lots of audience participation. The children loved the stories of the Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel not forgetting Jack and the Beanstalk.
“The singing, music, dancing, costumes and scenery were fantastic. North Farnborough Infant school had a wonderful time and would like to thank the students for making us so welcome.”
Our students also built the set in the weeks leading up to the performance, putting their teamwork and craft skills to the test:
