Every Child a Theatre Goer

On Wednesday, Year 6 walked to their nearest theatre, Stratford East, to see ,'A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings'. Inspired by Gabriel García Márquez’s story, this is a startling world of ruined beauty and magical reality where everyone dreams of their five minutes of fame and riches, and the extraordinary takes flight. Acted by miniature puppets, Aranaya of 6T5 said the story was about an angel who fell to earth and became an attraction for many people. 'It was an interesting play and the ending made you think.'

Going to a theatre to see a live performance is an expensive venture for many. This is why Ranelagh jumped at the chance for their Year 6 to experience it.

' I'm lucky enough to have been to the theatre before, but for others who haven't, this would inspire them to see more.'
