2016 has been a particularly busy year for the Drama Dept. To commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Jarrow Crusade we created a 30minute film which told the story of the Crusade from a persoanl perspective. It took months to create from the initial idea to the final “take” and the end result has been a very highly regarded piece of cinema. The film was premiered in Jarrow School in October 2016, it has also been shown at the Customs House n South Shields and in residential homes across the4 Borough of South Tyneside.
Other work included a specially devised piece of theatre for the Customs House Festival of Remembrance in November and also a pantomime/variety review.
In 2018 we will be presenting a new and unique film entitled “YOUR JOLLY GOOD HEALTH” to mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of the NHS.
