A Level Drama AQA Reflective Report Guidance (Component 3)

A Level Drama AQA Reflective Report Guidance (Component 3)

This is a very short guidance booklet for A level Drama students about how to produce the reflective report. My students have found this useful therefore I am uploading it, generally however, I think this is a difficult document to produce. I will release an update for next year.

Save the Talent Show - A pantomime for staff to perform to students

Save the Talent Show - A pantomime for staff to perform to students

Mrs Meanie is the evil head teacher who thinks that fun isn’t part of a school life. Will she manage to ruin the school talent show or will our heros Jack and Jill save the day? This was performed by the governors and staff of the school who wished to do something different for the children. As with traditional panto Dolly Dollop is the Dame played by a man and when it was performed the governor had made sprout earrings and really dressed up for the occasion! He hid and wasn’t seen by the children or other staff members until his appearance on stage. Due to lack of rehearsal time (we had a read through for an hour the morning of the performance!) the cast went on with scripts in hand. We felt that this didn’t impact the performance at all, if anything, added to the silliness of it! There are parts of the script which will allow you to use references to local places to add that personal comedic touch! I hope that it gives your students as much enjoyment as ours received from seeing the staff in a different light! There is no scenery, backgrounds or props required (except a clipboard) There are excerpts of some music that you will require (Macarena, YMCA and the Flower Duet) 6 x Speaking roles and as many non-speaking extras as want to take part!
