Castleford Academy

Burberry Inspire

As part of Burberry Inspire, Castleford Academy’s Drama department have been collaborating with the Leeds Playhouse on some exciting projects. Pupils have been engaging with well known stories with Jenny from the Playhouse including Blood Brothers and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Alongside our exploration, Year 7, 8 and 9 Drama pupils were entered into a competition with the playhouse: The Set Design Challenge. Pupils were tasked with creating their own ‘mock up’ of a stage set design based on their favourite play, book, film or could create a completely new world! There have been some amazing entries including sketches, Minecraft designed, shoebox stages and paintings amongst others. Well done to all involved including our winners who will be working closely with the Leads Playhouse Set Designer to design the actual set for an upcoming performance!
