Polka 40 Theatre Project
This year, whilst the Polka Theatre is closed for refurbishment, 18 schools across the borough have been invited to work with the Polka Theatre to celebrate its history and to devise their own theatrical experiences culminating in a performance.
Perseid Lower School has been selected as one of the schools to benefit from the exciting project, and on Wednesday 13th March the theatre visited pupils for a very special performance called 'Property of Polka'. Actors introduced polka's long standing history to Red Pathway through the use of different items including costumes, props, puppets and the set to engage and inspire their imagination.
When they finished, Red Group received a treasure chest of gifts, which they will use to create their own show, and will continue to use these props to explore and devise a stimulus for their own performance.
We can't wait!
