Sheffield Theatres Response Project - An Accidental Death of an Anarchist

Our Y10 Performing Arts students took part in a Sheffield Theatres Response Project on 11th October. Students attended two workshops, went to The Playhouse to watch 'An Accidental Death of an Anarchist' and then were tasked to create a piece of theatre in response to this play.

Students then performed their piece on the professional set of the play to an invited audience.

'We were incredibly proud of how hard all the students worked throughout the project and the final piece they created. They were a credit to Meadowhead during both workshops and the day at the theatre' Mrs Masson-Wilson.

Students thoroughly enjoyed the project stating...

'It was an interesting experience, doing something new.' Alfie

'It was great to be put in the position of a professional actor.' Thomas

'It was an enjoyable experience, being at the theatre, especially backstage' Isla

'It gave us the opportunity to have a professional experience in theatre' Emily

'The whole was project was organised professionally' Ruby

Y10 performing arts students

'It was a great experience that gave us a good idea of what a professional working actor would do in the industry' 

'I was nervous at the start of the project, but the staff made me feel more comfortable and i enjoyed performing on a professional stage' Sharifa

'It was really fun, I enjoyed it from start to finish' Adija

'I liked the freedom of being able to create our own response piece to the play' Kaitlin
