STAGE & SCREEN

A series of 15 Minute Performing Arts projects to inspire KS2 Students.

Introduction

Cambridgeshire Music is delighted to introduce ‘Stage & Screen’, a brand new performing arts project to inspire KS2 students across Cambridgeshire to explore their creativity.

Stage & Screen is composed of two projects, 15 Minute Musical and 15 Minute Pantomime, both of which include the opportunity for students to gain Arts Award Discover through Cambridgeshire Music. Having been run as a pilot project with Gamlingay Village Primary Academy, Cambridgeshire Music is now able to offer this project to other schools who might be interested and who would like to work towards their Arts Awards.

Outcome

Within this project, KS2 students will take a piece of literature and turn it into a production, whether it be a musical or a pantomime that lasts for up to fifteen minutes. The students are in charge of writing the script, making props and costume and staging the performance.

Students will be able to enhance their skills in the different areas of Performing Arts (dance, drama, music etc) and build transferable skills through cross-curricular teaching.

Our Aims

Cambridgeshire Music aims to provide routes into Performing Arts & Theatre for young people, and provide opportunities for schools and their staff to develop their creative provisions within a new genre.

The Projects

15 Minute Musical:

Students will explore Musical Theatre, looking at the different theatrical aspects that make up a show. The students will adapt a piece of literature, curriculum based topic or cultural event and create their own Musical, lasting up to fifteen minutes.

15 Minute Pantomime:

Students will explore traditional pantomime texts, looking at the cultural and historical aspects of this genre of theatre. Using a range of Performing Arts skills, students will create their own Pantomime lasting up to fifteen minutes.

Arts Award

Participation in Stage & Screen can be used as evidence for Arts Award Discover.

All students will be able to complete Arts Award Discover during the course of the project.
