Leeds Playhouse

We’re really pleased to be continuing our work on the Burberry Inspire project with Leeds Playhouse.  So far this year, Playhouse staff have been into school to work with the Dance, Drama and Music departments on an exciting Wizard of Oz performance! They’ve also developed oracy skills in the English department.

This half term they are working with the History department and the Royal Armouries on history re-enactment!  In December and January we had the exciting opportunity to visit the playhouse with all of Year 7, 8 and 9.  We turned it into a work place visit by finding out about all of the different jobs and careers which are available in a theatre.

Check out the list we have come up with so far:

  • Theatre attendant
