The Artz Academy Team joined forces with the year 6 pupils from Woodland Community Primary School to produce an original play called BOOKS, Written and Directed by Mark Ashton.

The project allowed these young students to be part of something unique and exciting before they embarked on a new journey in their respective high schools. BOOKS was performed at Glenburn High School for a packed audience of friends and family.

“BOOKS is an original sketch show concept that allows students to explore many different types of theatrical performance from Musical Theatre and Dance to Scripted Comedy and Masked Work. The show is a challenge to say the least, but I was so impressed by the way the pupils handled the pressure of the big occasion and certainly brought the show to life. The audience laughed and cried in the right places which is always a sure sign that the actor has done something right.

I want to thank Mr Millar (Head Teacher) for the opportunity and the staff of Woodlands for their help and support and want to wish the year 6 pupils all the best on their journey through high school
