1 week gone already!
Welcoming back the Production Arts department
Our first years have been settling in and attending all sorts of induction sessions to get to know the school. In the Stage Management department, we played some memory games with trays of props as an ice breaker.
Everyone also attended the Stage Management and Costume department meet and greet session on Wednesday evening
Red Velvet and The Wheel are both in rehearsal and the teams are busy with mark ups and propping.
A great first week back by the looks of things!
