YOUNG PEOPLE IN GILBERT & SULLIVAN
Marton Operatic Society was committed to introducing G&S to young people. We visited schools all over Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre and worked with the Penwortham Youth Music Festival at schools in Preston.
We conducted workshops in primary schools, usually for 9 to 11 year olds though sometimes for a wider range of pupils. We took the children through the story of a Gilbert & Sullivan show - normally the show we were performing that year. With the help of pictures, costumes and music we aimed to give them a taste of Gilbert & Sullivan and a little bit of acting and singing experience.
A number of pupils at our workshops also took part in our shows, which always featured several under 16s.
