Participatory Theatre Is Always A Hit At The Crescent School
Image Musical Theatre visited the Crescent School on Tuesday 15 October to stage a production of Pinocchio to the whole school. As always, the children got to join in with the super story-telling session and clearly all enjoyed the show.
Image Musical Theatre is a company that perform participatory theatre to primary school audiences. They believe that bringing a story to life engages children and helps encourage them to read.
The actors, Bethan, Roger and Tonia, began by selecting ten children to take part in the show. They then worked with the audience teaching them a series of songs, hand actions and responses to accompany the tale.
After a short break to allow the players to get into their costumes the production started. It was an excellent performance full of comedy and wit and the children sat focused and fully engaged. The theatre company cleverly brought the classic tale to life and the children really enjoyed singing all the songs. Well done to Crescent’s budding actors who took to the stage eagerly and delivered their lines with aplomb.
It was another great morning of engaging learning and fantastic fun.
