Chichester Festival Theatre Playtime Project

Last month saw Year 5 and 6 pupils from Singleton and West Dean Primary Schools visit Chichester Festival Theatre as part of a 10-week playwriting project run by practitioners from the Theatre (sponsored by Sheen Stickland Chartered Accountants).

The children had a backstage tour and attended a special workshop on stage with actors from the company of Much Ado About Nothing, before watching a matinee performance of the play.  “Amazing – I didn’t realise what went on backstage” was one comment, while the scene with Edward Bennett as Benedick hiding in the Christmas tree proved a particular hit.
