Drama

Each year sees opportunities for pupils to participate in dramatic productions at The Chorister School.  The Pre-Prep and Nursery pupils present their annual Nativity Play in the Cathedral Chapter House at the end of the Michaelmas Term.  Pupils in Forms 1 and 2 present an annual Middle School Drama in the Lent Term, and pupils in the Senior Years participate in the annual Musical, which is staged in Durham’s Gala Theatre.

In addition, groups of pupils have the opportunity to participate in larger projects with external professionals.

The 3rd Form recently sang the chorus parts in a production of Benjamin Britten’s ‘The Little Sweep’ at The Withal Theatre in Barnard Castle.  The child solo roles were taken by pupils in Forms 4-6 alongside professional singers who sang the adult parts.
