On Tuesday 10th October, 55 Y11 students attended a production of Blood Brothers at the new, 37 million pound Chester Storyhouse Theatre. Students are studying Blood Brothers for their GCSE Drama written exam and will answer questions about how they will practically interpret characters in selected extracts of the play.
We had a magical time, sitting on the front row was a thrilling experience; the cast interacted with Pensby students and ensured we were on the edge of our seats. Sean Jones who plays Mickey in the touring production even tweeted our @Pensbydrama Twitter!
Our students were a credit to us and their parents. So much so that the rest of this article is written by a member of the public who wrote to us detailing her experience of meeting our pupils.
"This evening my parents and I had the privilege to be sat behind and with students from Pensby High School at the Blood Brothers performance in Chester.
We had booked our tickets a long while ago as we love Blood Brothers but felt trepidation when we saw a huge group of school pupils sat in front and beside us, but we needn't have worried as the group were an absolute credit to your school. My mum talked about how lovely it was to see such impeccably behaved students thoroughly enjoy the theatre all the way home.
They were so well behaved and respectful and the teacher seemed an absolute joy. I wish I had such a fun teacher when I was at school!
I know young people get a lot of bad press so I just wanted to let you know how wonderful your pupils are"
