Youth theatre and partner schools

Partner Schools in action

The Crescent works with Partner Schools on a year-round basis, in school, and at The Crescent. It’s a treat to see their work presented in the Festival! Our current Partner Schools are Fane Street Primary School, Millennium Integrated Primary School and Lagan College.

Join us 11.30 - 11.45am on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to see their work: 

Educated Off-Site is inspired by Willy Russell's 1977 play Our Day Out. The play is about a group of pupils from Mrs Kays 'Progress Class', who go on a school trip to Wales, supervised by the disciplinarian principal Mr Briggs. This class-devised performance is the culmination of 6 exploratory school-based workshops with a focus on character, comedy, and image theatre performed by Year 9 pupils.
