The NLS Drama Department proudly presented a production of Arabian Nights by Dominic Cooke on Tuesday 5th December 2017 and Wednesday 6th December 2017.
 
The play celebrates the power of the imagination and storytelling, told through physical theatre.
 
It's wedding night in the palace of King Shahrayar. By morning, the new queen, Shahrazad, is to be put to death like a thousand young brides before her. She has the one gift that can save her: the gift of storytelling. With a mischievous imagination and silver tongue, Queen Shahrazad paints a dazzling array of stories and characters, summoned forth from strange and magical worlds populated by giant beasts, singing trees and crafty thieves. Can the power of storytelling save her life?
 
This performance allowed the students the opportunity to create a performance based on a text which forms a component of the GCSE in Y11 (Component 2). At the heart of this performance has been the desire to create a piece of ‘Ensemble’ theatre in which all the Drama students have a vital role throughout the creating process. The play celebrates the power of the imagination and storytelling, told through physical theatre.
 
Everyone in the cast has contributed ideas, demonstrated fantastic collaborative skills, commitment and creativity. 
 
A great team effort and community one too because, on Tuesday 5th December, over 200 KS2 Primary students had the opportunity to see a preview of the performance!
 
The company’s Commitment to making the most of this Opportunities and their mutual  Respect for one another has enable them to Excel at working collaboratively in the performance.
