Pen, Pad, Action!
The Assembly Hall Theatre in Tunbridge Wells has willingly opened its curtains to give a Year 10 Skinners’ Kent Academy student the opportunity of a lifetime. The fifteen year old student, who must remain anonymous, will visit some of the Theatre’s main performances incognito. “I’m delighted to be given this chance, especially as I know hundreds of others would have loved to do it. It’s a brilliant theatre and it’s right on my doorstep, so I have seized the chance with both hands.”
After a successful project in October, when students helped to build the spinning wheel for the panto season, this is another welcome venture and The Academy is pleased to be working once again with The Assembly Hall Theatre.
Mrs Ahmed, Head of the Communication Faculty at The Skinners’ Kent Academy said: “This is a valuable opportunity for our Mystery Critic. They will be able to use skills learnt within the Academy and apply them to the outside world. Specifically they will develop communication skills and really learn how to write for a particular audience. We will give our full support and encouragement along the way.”
Assembly Hall Theatre Director Brian McAteer said: "The work we do with young people is really important to us and we like to support them. One of our objectives here at the Assembly Hall is to involve young people in the work of the theatre – they are, after all, tomorrow’s audience.”
The Mystery Critic will review a range of exciting shows; the first is the stage production of the No.1 greatest musical Grease on at the Assembly Hall Theatre, Monday 19 – Saturday 24 March www.assemblyhalltheatre.co.uk
