Prep+ The Term So Far

Prep+ The Term So Far

We have had three fully booked outings so far this term. The term (season) kicked off as boys, staff and parents went to watch The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 ¾ -a musical of the famous book written by Sue Townsend. The staging and the musical itself were fabulous and thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Our next visit was to the Dominion Theatre for a musical recently made of the 1986 hit film with Tom Hanks, ‘Big’. Once again, a lively, fun and music filled show told the story a young boy trapped inside an adult body.

Our final visit was to the brilliantly staged ‘Witness for the Prosecution’ in the atmospheric setting of County Hall.  As an Agatha Christie play, there was of course much debate and discussion as to ‘whodunnit’? at the interval, with a superb climax to the play that did not disappoint!

One of the great things about Prep+ trips is that sometimes we arrive early and get to take a short walk around the area. Last week we walked through the amazing Leake Street tunnel, a base for many street graffiti artists who are constantly changing the art there. A nice link into the Prep + Graffiti Art Course here at the Prep last Sunday (see separate article).

Prep+ now looks forward to the sold out ‘Dining in the Dark’ experience at half-term and three more cracking events before Christmas.
