Arts Award TR2 Trip
Students following the Arts Award in KS4 had the exciting opportunity of visiting Plymouth’s TR2 on Monday 2nd July 2018.
The TR2 is a unique and incredible building
that is home to the Theatre Royals production, design and manufacturing centre
for the stage, as well as rehearsal studios. The building itself has won an
architectural award but inside the staff are busy making costumes and sets for
productions that tour around the world. The rehearsal spaces not only host a
whole series of events and workshops, such as the Young Company, but also provide
rehearsal spaces for shows that appear on the Theatre Royals stage.
The students were understandably ‘blown away’ by the tour, the staff at TR2 were equally impressed by our fantastic students who they said were so engaging, interested and polite.
Well done to all the staff and students who participated in this trip, it really gave the students a valuable opportunity to look through the ‘real world of work window!’
