Happenchance Theatre Company Come to Westwood

“What a lovely Day”

Vita Fox, Performer with Happenchance Theatre Company

Just before we finished the Summer Term in July, GCSE and A Level Drama students participated in a tremendous enrichment session with visiting theatre company, Happenchance. The Year 10 and 12 students saw an extract from the company’s newest devised piece and participated in a question and answer session with the company about devising methods. Following a seminar session on careers in theatre, the students then all enthusiastically took part in a practical devising workshop with the company. It was a fabulous afternoon enjoyed by all. The company were so impressed by our students, so much that they are already planning to visit us again next year. Vita Fox from Happychance described our young performers as “exceptional” and “a credit to the school”. Of particular interest during the seminar session was a discussion ocareer opportunities in acting, through the university route and through drama school – food for thought for the future! 

A fantastic day had by all. We look forward to welcoming back the Happenchance Theatre Company in the new year. 

Mrs Hansell
