The Jungle Book at CFT

On Thursday 1st February twenty Year 7’s were rewarded with a day out for their hard work on Accelerated Reader.

Mrs Mulkern and Mrs Angus took the students to Chichester Festival Theatre for a workshop and performance of The Jungle Book.

The workshop was fantastic because the students got to hear about all the work that goes into putting on a production, see the set, meet a puppet and the director.

The director told us about his career path which started out at Chichester High School!

The workshop also included a session with the production's choreographer who took us through some dance and songs.

Gosia Popek said, "She enjoyed the workshop because she found out how the animals moved and how they thought about this in the staging."

James Ward said, "He loved the dancing in the workshop."

Following a quiz and a packed lunch, our CHS students were treated to a performance of The Jungle Book, which they all really enjoyed.
