The 39 Steps
Fifty year 9 & 10 drama students visited York Opera House to watch the acclaimed west end theatre show ‘The 39 Steps’. With only 4 actors playing over 100 different characters students gained a great understanding of how to adapt acting to play a wide variety of roles. The clever use of lighting and sound alongside great use of physical theatre and slapstick moments made for great comedy. This has given students a lot to think about in preparation for writing their reviews as part of the GCSE drama course.
