Wonder Boy Production at Bristol Old Vic
On the evening of Friday 25th March the English department was delighted to be able to take ninety KS3 students on two coaches to see the new production of Wonder Boy at the Bristol Old Vic. This eye-popping production is the tale of 12-year-old Sonny, who invents a superhero, to help him with his stammer. The production uses creative captioning projected onto the back wall, eye-popping, zingy neon, along with huge laugh-out-loud moments from the very first minute and also tender, tear-jerking scenes, keeping the whole audience thoroughly engaged throughout. The staff involved hope to run similar theatre trips in the future now that covid restrictions have ended.
