Year 10 and 11 Theatre Trip – A Christmas Carol
An after-school trip to the Altrincham Garrick to see a production of A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story turned out to be a very rewarding experience for 30 Year 10 and 11 students – along with Ms Spencer, Ms Simpson & I. We all left filled with the spirit of Christmas, and it was only mid-November.
As a set GCSE text, this was a great chance for our students to see a modern interpretation of the text and to consider its relevance for a modern audience, thereby deepening their appreciation of the text and the author’s original intention. Mark Gatiss’ adaptation was truly faithful to the heart and spirit of Charles Dickens’ much-loved festive ghost story, and a great evening at the theatre for our students.
