Youth Theatre outing to West Norwood Cemetery

The theme for the Saturday drama classes this term is ‘spooky stories‘ and Gothic plays. To coincide with this, the Youth groups (13 to 18 year olds) were treated to a guided tour of West Norwood cemetery, run by The Friends of the Cemetery. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon as the youth theatre members were shown around the cemetery and learned about the history and famous people buried there, all while gaining inspiration for exploring the Gothic genre.

Nearly 18 months on it was necessary to recast several of the roles, definitely the hardest audition process I’ve ever had. It was lovely […]

I remember an echoey empty bedroom, and a wardrobe where a lonely wire coat hanger rocked back and forth like a metronome. My mother pulled it out and threw it in the car.  “I’m leaving nothing behind.”  We moved […]
