We are extremely lucky and privileged at Oatlands to be able to offer a wide range of after school clubs every night of the week. Our clubs are led and delivered by qualified, experienced staff. Children apply for a club they would like to attend at the start of each term.
What a fantastic performance by members of Drama Club run by Harrogate Theatre. The children have spent this term learning scripts and acting techniques, to prepare for a performance taught by Lizzie. They spent the afternoon at Harrogate Theatre in the Studio rehearsing and preparing for the early evening performances to family, including a technical and dress rehearsal. There was a real treat and surprise for the children after all their hard work in rehearsals, when they were invited backstage to meet the cast of Beauty and the Beast. Children had the opportunity to ask questions about being an actor and pantomimes. Inspired by the actors, children then performed twice, Don’t Open The Box, a story about the tale of Pandora’s Box based on Ancient Greek Mythology to their family and friends. Our talented children delivered outstanding performances confidently and there were many inspiring moments. It was a real treat to watch these performances and a wonderful production enjoyed thoroughly by all. Chris Tulley, Chair of Governors and RKLT Trustee and Mrs McNerney who attended the performance, expressed how amazing the children were, thanking Lizzie and Harrogate Theatre for providing this opportunity for our youngsters. The children were presented with a certificate after the final performance. Thank you also to Paige and Abigail’s mums who helped and supported the visit. A joy and delight to watch: one we will always remember.
