3 Witches will be on at the Belgrade Theatre Coventry in October 2013.

It comes out of a development project in 2012 with all 3 Hoopla partners, actors, composer, digital artist, teachers and young people.

It included workshops with young people, actor rehearsals, song development with composer and associate artist Christopher Ash, work with projection and lighting designer Arnim Friess and sharing events at both the school and theatre.

Here is a short clip from our sharing event at the Belgrade Theatre.

 

Have a listen to the Witches' Song performed by Kathy Toy, Naomi Lee Schulke and Dan Willis.

 We worked with Richard Lee School in Coventry who came up with lots of ideas for the story and characters.

They also wrote their own witches' potions. We poured the ingredients together, added some music and out came a song - Despair and Doom.

The pupils performed this at their school to their own staff and pupils, staff and pupils form 3 other schools and to family and friends. They then came to the Belgrade and performed in front of an invited audience. The video just gives a flavour: they were terrific.
