Circus School provides performers for La Boheme

Seen here are our students in rehearsal for Puccini’s La Boheme performed at the Grand Theatre, Blackpool on the 12th March. Our Circus School was asked to supply some street entertainers for this Russian production. It was a great experience for our young people to work with some of the worlds greatest artistes.

The BBC heard about this event and obtained permission to record the students performance. This will be part of a new show to be screened in April called “Level up” a factual magazine show for CBBC. The programme will explore the opportunities and some of the difficulties faced by children as they grow up in 2006.  Further recording for the show will take place at Highfield School on the 18th March when they record a typical Circus workshop that leads to a performance of this standard.
