This year, 18 schools across Merton have been invited to work with the Polka Theatre to celebrate its history. The exciting project invites pupils to devise their own theatrical experiences, exploring ‘behind-the-scenes’ in theatre. The project will culminate in a performance.
Perseid Lower School has been selected as one of the lucky schools to participate in the programme, and actors from the theatre visited pupils for a very special performance called 'Property of Polka’, introducing polka's long standing history to Red Pathway through the use costumes, props, puppets and set to engage and inspire their imagination.
Red Pathway 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!
