The project was to create a performance piece which presents the opportunities available to those wanting to take up vocational training at The Oldham College. It should be a snapshot of the type of courses available at the college, light hearted, entertaining and to capture The Oldham College atmosphere in a fun but real way. The result;
“The Only Way Is Oldham”
2Tour Theatre have been working with FrontRow Theatre ; a student led theatre group, on an intensive 4 week training and rehearsal programme at the college to produce the above stated product.
The students have gained skills in ensemble energy, physical strength and movement control, while spending lots of time on large, detailed characters. Giving the company chance to develop a walk, stance and gesture for their character gave them a clear distinction from themselves to becoming their character. Learning traits to embody over their everyday movements ensure a confident and clear transition in performance.
The show is scheduled to tour from the 19th September 2011 for 2 weeks, and the show is available with a workshop exploring vocational routes at The Oldham College. Not only is the show entertaining and informative, and we have a workshop to go with it; it’s only FREE to have at your school. Thats right FREE. Please get in touch to book.
