This week has certainly been busy for Year 4 with another trip to the world-famous LAMDA!

Ahead of taking part in the Primary Shakespeare Project in the summer term, we were invited to visit the LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) for a workshop on how everything in a theatre works.

Once we arrived and were settled in, our host Ella introduced us to the world-famous Sainsbury theatre and we were treated to an incredible show that demonstrated all the lights and sounds used to create the amazing theatre performance. We then got split into groups to go and learn more about the different elements that all have to work together to put on a theatre show.

We met with a sound engineer, a light engineer,  a stage manager and also the fly operator (who controls the movement of all the scenery onto the stage by pulling ropes). We made our way around the theatre on a rotation and got to have a go at selecting different lights and playing sounds in the theatre. A class favourite seemed to be the Mario theme song!  We learnt that all these different roles have to communicate together via headsets so that the show can run like clockwork!

We are looking forward to coming back and performing at LAMDA for our Primary Shakespeare Project in June!

Thank you, Ella and her team for hosting us!

Thank you to the parent volunteers who also helped us today!
