Students from the Humanities faculty are successfully getting their voices heard and building strong links with; local businesses, the local community and media to showcase their writing talents. Through fantastic exclusive opportunities which see students receiving tickets for theatre performances in exchange for professional reviews. This is a great way for our students to get their work published and build on their writing skills.
Sam Betts-Davies and Kathryn Philpot who are both English A Level students recently reviewed Romeo and Juliet at the New Wolsey Theatre, below is an extract from their review:
‘This production of Romeo and Juliet was dynamic, intense, and incredibly diverse across many genres of theatre giving the famous tragedy a face-lift just for the 21st century young theatregoer. In a vibrant piece that seemingly brings together Shakespeare and West Side Story in an elaborate mix of dance, physical theatre and realism.’
Sam said ‘It was a really valuable experience and I enjoyed the challenging aspect of having to turn the review around in a short time frame with a strict deadline. It has opened my eyes to possibly considering a career in journalism.’
