New Drama Resources at Furze Platt

This term the PTFA kindly funded a Theatre-in-a-Box for our Drama Department.  The box contains pieces such as rostra block of various size, ramps, cylinders and steps, a beautifully made working lighting rig which provides further authenticity. The Theatre in a Box has been an extremely useful resource, supporting GCSE and A Level students with their visions of their practical coursework.

The PTFA have also supplied the Drama Department with additional staging for their many performances. With the extra sections, they will be able to stage performances in different, more exciting configurations. 

Thank you to the PTFA for funding these resources.
