Panto season comes early

06 October 2014

Our Art & design students felt like giants as they began designing the sets for the college’s end of year pantomime, Jack & the beanstalk!

The students were working with children from Holly Spring Infant and Nursery School to design ‘The Open Road’. The Year 2 pupils will choose their favourite images for the theme, and work together with our students to turn them into stage scenery.

 Jan Allen, Art Lecturer, said:

“When Holly Springs contacted us to ask if our students could work with the children, we saw it as an ideal opportunity for a community art project. Every year we try to make sure our students take part in at least one community project.

“The children have come up with somewonderful pictures for the college panto, and they will all be invited to see the finished production and how all their ideas have been put into practice.”

The Performing arts department will pick the best artwork to be combined into one giant set for the final production!

 Jack & the beanstalk will be the 2nd pantomime in the new Church Road building, after a week-long run of Aladdin in December 2009. Watch this space for more productions in the summer term!
