This year 25 3rd and 4th Form College pupils are working together to bring the classic children's book The Railway Children to life for a whole new audience. In this innovative new adaptation by Mike Kenny, which is currently being performed in the West End, the cast must work together as an ensemble to rise to the huge challenge of creating a working railway on stage. Other challenges for the cast have included staging a landslide and conveying the brave Bobbie averting a rail disaster, just moments before a crash. The pupils have certainly enjoyed working on such an exciting piece of theathre with one saying "When I first read the script I couldn't even imagine how we would stage the scenes, but I have lernt that with some imagination and creativitiy anything is possible on the stage".
