Year 4 trip to Shaftsbury Theatre
For World of Work Week, Year 4’s theme was Showcase. As part of this exciting theme, Year 4 went on a visit backstage to the Shaftsbury Theatre in London’s West End. The children got to experience what life is like for the actors both on the stage and backstage in the wings. They also got to learn about the jobs of the stage manager and technicians and see how such large pieces of scenery and stage can be stored in such small areas. Additionally, Year 4 also had the opportunity to walk around the auditorium and visit a royal box whilst learning about the jobs of the box office and front of house team.
