Behind the scenes at Sheffield Theatres

On Friday, some lucky Y4s visited Sheffield Theatres for the morning. We had a tour of their three theatre spaces – Crucible, Studio and Lyceum and went backstage.

We learned about the different types of stages and how important the people who work backstage are! We were let lose in the costume department, where we tried on all sorts of costumes, from fur coats to army uniforms!

We then did a workshop, where children chose from lighting, costume, acting, singing and dancing, ending with a performance.

What a morning!
