College buzzing as students take to the stage after Pandemic pause

Barton Peveril Sixth Form College Students took to the stage to perform their rendition of Katzenmusik at the Rose Theatre.

Barton Peveril Sixth Form College students returned to the stage at the College’s recently £1.35 million remodelled Rose Theatre to perform their rendition of Katzenmusik.

The College’s Rose Theatre remodelling has better enabled students to perform in their numerous College productions, with this academic year having the Theatre already play host to Oklahoma!, Alice, and one in a series of Jazz and Soul Nights.

Katzenmusik is the latest play by playwright Tom Fowler: a darkly comic story about social inequality and upheaval, told in reverse.

Subject Leader for Performing Arts, Steve Wild, spoke on his students and the production’s importance:

I was so proud to finally see the students on stage and under the lights. They would normally have performed a play together last year but were obviously unable to. Performing a play as a class is so important in their development and learning and teaches them so many skills. The students worked so hard and surpassed my expectations massively.
