Brook Green's Panto Visit


Students from Brook Green went to see Dick Whittington at the Plymouth Theatre Royal on Wednesday 9th January!  Oh no they didn't...oh yes they did!  Everyone agreed that it was a fantastic experience and some students said it was 'hilarious', 'funny', 'great' and 'brilliant'!  It was a special 'relaxed' performance of the pantomime where the lights are on and there are no loud noises so it suits students with autism and other SEND issues.  The stars of the show Samantha Womack, John Partridge and Andy Ford even reminded the audience at the start of the show that none of the show was real and that it was make-believe just to reassure the audience!   The students and staff sang along to songs, clapped to the rhythm of the music and even danced a little! Our favourite character was 'King Rat' played by John Partridge!
