Drama Workshop

On Wednesday 21 February selected Drama students from Years 7 to 11 were involved in a workshop with Dave Cartwright, a Leeds based actor, director and theatre maker.

Each workshop was specially tailored to each year group, focusing on key dramatic techniques and acting skills. Dave has worked with students at Allerton Grange before and is brilliant at inspiring young theatre makers. He engages them in storytelling, character work and fun ways into devising.

More extended performance projects are in the pipeline for the future, which will see Dave return to Allerton Grange for further opportunities to collaborate.
