Every Academic Year, aside from the dozen or so Examination Productions produced at Bede's, the school stages one Senior Play or Musical involving pupils from all year groups.
A showcase of Bede's incredible acting talent, the Senior Production operates on a two-yearly cycle; one year we will stage a musical, such as Sweet Charity in 2013-14, the next a play, such as Noises Off in 2014-15, the following a musical, such as Into The Woods in 2015-16, and so on.
Our Senior Production for 2016-17 will be Great Expecations, which will be staged over four nights and a matineé at The Miles Studio Theatre.
With all of the make-up, set design, lighting and production management handled by Bede's pupils, who work in partnership with industry veterans like Bob Bryan and Stephanie Carr-Gomm as part of the Theatre Production activity in the Co-Curricular Programme, these annual events are not to be missed!
“ I relish building confidence and creativity in every individual so that they can achieve their full potential whilst at Bede’s and beyond. ”
