    Queensmill students spend time working with Flute Theatre

    Before the Easter break, pupils spent a week working alongside Flute Theatre as they rehearsed their production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.  Through sensory games, students encountered Shakespeare's poetic exploration of how it feels to be alive, focusing on how people see, think and feel.  Flute went on to perform their show at the Bridge Theatre the following week.  Groups of students travelled to London Bridge to perform alongside the company in this large, professional theatre.  They performed confidently, creatively and passionately in front of a very large audience!
