Drama is thriving at Ackworth School. We have a large number of students who are involved in all aspects of production, including lighting design, stage managing and back stage crew.

Throughout the academic year we provide opportunities for all students to be involved in performing whether this is in a straight Drama or a Musical. The student’s talents in the performing arts are nurtured throughout their school life at Ackworth and they are encouraged to use their talents to lead and direct other students. Sixth form students actively contribute to the roles of Director, Choreographer and Producer.

Inter-house Drama is a highlight to the year, with all four houses presenting a piece of Theatre based around a certain theme. Judges from the Performing Arts industry come in to school to provide thoughtful and detailed feedback to all the houses.

We are always striving to create original and innovative theatre.

This year we are working on 'A Christmas Carol' which will add a festive mood to the end of the Autumn Term.  At the moment the cast and crew are working very hard in rehearsals and tickets will be available after half term.
