French theatre company entertain pupils with theatrical comedy

Second year pupils put their linguistic skills to the test as they watched and participated in a French production this week.

French theatre company Onatti visited the school to perform Les Garçons. The production was a humorous story about a problematic evening of babysitting.

The play was performed entirely in French and pupils were amazed that they were able to understand almost everything. There was a lot of laughter and clapping from the pupils who clearly enjoyed the production greatly.

Olly Underhill, Taha Ahmed, Elliot Mills and Josh Furtado-Mendes all volunteered to take part in audience participation. They delivered lines in French and understood and followed stage directions from the actors.

Head of modern foreign languages, Ms Gibson said:

The pupils really enjoyed the production and it was a fantastic opportunity to hear the language in a new context.  We are looking forward to having the company back for another play in the new year – this time a German play for third year pupils.
