Oracles perform Transform!

 

We're very proud of the representatives from each of our three Oracle Projects for the brilliant work they showed today for Transform!, our end of year celebration of all things Oracle at the Pleasance Theatre.

Oracle projects are for young people in years 6 and 7 and, as well as creating great theatre, help young people manage the often difficult transition to secondary school.

The three shows they produced today all included an element of transition and transformation: a group of girls creating their dream school, children abducted by aliens and a dentist who eats a magic fig that makes his dreams come true.

The pieces were vibrant, imaginative and really exciting - a fitting end to a really successful year for our youngest company members.

You can see photos from the showings here.

Beginnings rehearsal photos online

We've posted some great photos of the second rehearsal of our Beginnings Project - five brand new plays by five amazing playwrights.

It's very rare for young performers to get the chance to work on plays that they've been involved in from the very start of their development and we're lucky to have five really bright and brilliant emerging directors working with them: Kwaku Boateng (above), Tuan Ly, Emily Lim, Ola Ince and Alex Brown.

We'll be introducing the plays, and the directors, over the next few weeks.  But in the meantime, here's a taste of what's been going on in rehearsal.

Wonderful feedback for Little Miracles

Little Miracles is coming to the end of the Worcester leg of its tour, where it has been resident at the University of Worcester for the week.

The show has been seen by over 500 young people (as well as some adult audiences) in Worcester and has had some rave reviews, including this lovely message from John Newbury, Chair of the Biochemical Society's Education Committee and Head of the Institute of Science and the Environment at the University.

I just watched Little Miracles here in Worcester. I was completely blown away. I think it is superb. I spoke to the actors afterwards to pass on my congratulations and have a chat. They said that they had a slightly different approach with the adult audience I was in. They did not hold back on the emotional stuff. I’m glad they said that because I was almost in tears at a couple of points. Anyway, I think it is a triumph. The feedback from the schools is very good too and this will be passed on to you.

The show continues its tour through London and the South East next week.
