Darlington schools form partnership with the Civic Theatre
PUPILS from three schools will benefit from the expertise of stage professionals after teaming up with Darlington Civic Theatre and a theatre company.
Hummersknott Academy, Longfield Academy and Darlington School of Mathematics and Science have joined forces with the Civic and The Touring Consortium Theatre Company for a three-year partnership.
Its aim is to give the schools the chance to form a unique relationship with one of the country’s top producers of drama, as well as their local theatre venue.
It will give the students an experience beyond simply seeing Touring Consortium shows, with workshops exploring how the productions are created and the chance to get further behind-the-scenes resources online.
Other advantages for pupils will include discounted student tickets for each Touring Consortium production and an in-school workshop delivered by an industry professional before each show.
The first play in the project is To Sir, With Love which stars Matthew Kelly and is at the Civic Theatre from November 12 to 16.
