Drama at Anson

Anson Primary School embraces the Arts. With a large stage, 21st Century lighting rig, top quality sound, adventurous set building and HD recordings (made by the Anson Digital Leaders), the children are given every opportunity to shine. 

The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes

Class Highbury put on a stunning performance of The Highwayman by Alfred Notes.

The 2015 Annies

The 2015 Annies was launched with this video showcasing the talent of the children on the Anson stage.

Teachers as Actors

It’s not just the children who get involved, with members of staff taking to the stage. So far they have performed Aladdin, Cinderella, Jack & the Beanstalk and A Christmas Carol to packed houses.

Anson Primary School: Jack & the Beanstalk

Jack Durden is down on his luck. His mother hasn't paid the rent for weeks and now he's being forced to sell his beloved cow. What will his mum make of the deal he has made? Watch the staff of Anson in a truly hilarious version of Jack and the Beanstalk!

Class Assemblies

The children have many opportunities to be on the stage throughout their time at Anson. Every Friday a different class puts on a short assembly for the whole school. This guarantees at least two chances to be on stage for every pupil in a school year. We also work with groups like Wizard Theatre and Finding the Will to give the children experience and sessions with professional actors. Our work with the Unicorn Theatre is driving drama through the whole curriculum. 


On top of this, children perform in singing events, the Talent Quest and musical groups. We light them up and let them shine. 

Anson Primary School: War Game by Class JW

The children in Mr Waters class performed their version of War Game.

Technology on the Anson Stage

Our large screen and projection allows us to be innovative with backdrops and sets. Some classes use it as a simple Powerpoint backdrop with images and video playing. However, we've also seen flying ghosts, the mummification of Pharaohs and Gummy Bear fights on the screen as part of the shows. This video demonstrates innovative use of technology on the Anson Stage. 

Hansel and Gretel Scene

This scene was taken from Happy Even After, a play directed by Miss Snarr and written by Mr Pile. It demonstrates how we use technology to enhance productions. What you see and hear is edited and controlled independently by the children during the performance.
