Year 10 - A Christmas Carol @ The Old Vic

A group of Year 10 pupils enjoyed a performance of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol at The Old Vic theatre on 7th January. 

The clever adaptation was expressive and uplifting and will support the boys with their GCSE English Literature studies.  The classic story was told through a mix of actors acting out the scenes from the book and choruses of Christmas carols from the supporting cast, giving pupils the chance to explore some of the novel’s key themes by the means of theatre.

Our thanks go to The Jack Petchey Foundation for their funding support of this trip.
