A CLASS STORY by Jade Clarke
On Wednesday 23rd August, students from our Reception classes and our Reception/Year 1 class boarded a bus with the Hopgood Theatre in our sights. We were on our way to experience the truly imaginative theatre production of Home.
Once we arrived at Hopgood Theatre we were greeted by many flowers in the front foyer. Students explored and when pressing the buttons, they had to listen very carefully. From a knock-knock to an international welcome, these bright and vibrant flowers prepared us for the colourful ride we were about to embark on.
Once in our seats we were met by two friends, Charlie and Zoe, who took us on a wondrous and ingenious adventure. Every time the door opened, we were thrown into a portal of imagination and into a new world. We heard secret thoughts, met mythical imaginative creatures and saw drawings bought to life in a truly immersive theatre experience.
Students were welcomed on stage to participate in the performance as various elements of the show burst from the stage to our seats.
It was a visually stunning and creative performance that all who ventured on truly enjoyed.
