Becoming Me visits Christ the King Catholic Primary School on its tour of Coventry schools
Our Theatre in Education (TiE) project, Big School is currently touring to 46 local primary schools with a brand new show, Becoming Me this year to help Year Six pupils deal with the transition from primary to secondary school.
Performed by cast members Shereena Glean, Kim Hackleman and local actor Jon Morris (who first began acting as a member of the Belgrade Youth Theatre), Becoming Me tells the story of a group of adults who return to their primary school to talk to Year Six pupils about how to deal with the challenges ahead. Being in their old school brings back memories of their own transition to secondary school and they quickly move away from delivering a speech into the performance of their memories; from their last day of primary, through the long summer holidays to the first day of secondary school.
Some of our Communications team went to see the cast perform at Christ the King Catholic Primary School and we thought they did a fantastic job, with the pupils hooked throughout! Check out the Images & Videos gallery on the left to see some photos of the performance – and the pupils getting throughly involved in the action!
