Behind The Scenes with Robert!
Robert cues The Jungle Book!
Our Performing Arts team are always promoting our nearby youth theatre to the pupils of Slindon College.
If you were lucky enough to snap up a ticket for 'The Jungle Book' at Chichester Festival Theatre over Christmas, you'd have noticed a few of our pupils (old and new) in the cast!
You may not have noticed a hard-working Robert (Year 9) behind the scenes! Robert had an incredible holiday period as part of the Technical Team for what was a magical show. His duties included helping with set changes, lighting and sound. Robert was granted a week off school to work on this professional level production, which took place at one of the UK's most famous and prestigious theatres. With 1500 audience members a night, this was an exciting opportunity to be led by a fabulous top team!
Several pupils have had transformative experiences while at Slindon College that have led to them having the confidence and bravery to tackle outside school activities in the arts. Former pupils have gone on to The Brit School and even worked in the West End on major productions such as 'The Life of Pi.'
Robert gained his experience by being a member of CFYT's technical branch who meet once a week to learn about everything behind-the-scenes! If you'd be interested in CFYT, please chat to our Head of Performing Arts for more info.
