Pupils on stage at Rep

DUNDEE Rep Theatre Creative Learning is working with secondary school pupils from Tayside, Perthshire and Aberdeenshire on an exciting new drama project called Onstage.

Using the forthcoming Dundee Rep Ensemble production Further Than The Furthest Thing as a stimulus, the pupils are devising their own pieces of drama which they will perform on the main stage at the theatre in May.

With support from teachers and Dundee Rep’s Creative Learning team the pupils will develop their ideas, learn new skills and explore their creativity all within a rich and challenging learning context. Participants will be encouraged to use movement text, music and digital resources to respond to the stimulis and create their own mini pieces of contemporary Scottish theatre. the evening promises to be a vibrant and engaging portrayal of young people’s perceptions of community, belonging, leaving and arriving. If your school would like to be involved contact Gemma Nicol at Dundee Rep Theatre on 01382 342660.
