What a term! We have had a fantastic term with Growtheatre, it has been filled with fun, laughter, and most importantly adventure. This Sunday saw our Junior and Intermediate groups perform their Summer Sharing, assisted by a handful of our wonderful Seniors giving the audience a taste of what they have been working on.
Small but mighty is the best way to describe our Junior group. They have worked extremely hard this term and created a brilliant piece of work that explored the poems Ivy, Magpie and Conker from the Lost Words book. They also spent some time beautifully crafting their own costumes to wear and we think they did an amazing job!
The Intermediates put on a show stopper performance which not only allowed their audience to jump into the pages of the Lost Words, but took them on a journey as they used the woods to explore their chosen poems. The Intermediate group work so well as a group and really took their time to make sure every scene was perfect!
Last but not least a massive Thank you to the Seniors who have provided us with lots of laughter and creativeness this term. As this group performed at Easter, they were allowed to choose what we explored every week, from improvisation to stage combat and even having the honour of working on an original play by one of Growtheatre’s very own, we have had a fantastic term with them and they never fail to amaze us with their ideas and enthusiasm.
I can’t help thinking #childhoodunplugged when I think of Grow Theatre. I strongly believe you are providing something very special, and in a similar vein to The Lost Words, you are offering beautiful experiences and opportunities that are being lost – or have already disappeared – from other avenues.

We are very proud of all three groups and we can’t wait to see what next year brings! – Paige, Rachel, Sophie.
