BTEC Acting creates a Job Fair

The BTEC Acting group laid on an Expressive Arts Job Fair for year 7 and 8’s in the Drama rooms, showcasing a variety of jobs available in Expressive Arts.

Each student had researched a particular job, ranging from Actors, Choreographers, Set and Costume designers to Musician and Sound/Lighting engineers. They then “became” the people who did those jobs, dressing up as a typical Theatre Director, for example, and handing out leaflets explaining qualifications and skills necessary to do the job, where to study, who you would work with, etc.

The creative atmosphere was wonderful and everyone had a lot of fun learning about future career option. Very well done to the Btec Acting students!

The lighting crew (Head of Lighting Mason Draper, Lighting Designer Rhianna Williams and Lighting Technician Ellie Hargreaves) demonstrate  to  year 8’s the importance of creating mood by using coloured lighting.
