I disagree. Probably as I wouldn't touch Blood Brothers with the proverbial poostick. Students are often limited by their teacher's willingness to try new ideas or to take real risks that challenge students and teacher alike. We are role models and as such we have great opportunities to change opinions and guide students interests. I am speaking fresh from completing the final round of practical performances for AS/A2 and GCSE where my students excelled with performances in the style of Verbatim, Frantic Assembly, Complicite and Kneehigh and Berkoff. Their excitement, creativity and enthusiasm was repaid and, once again, I was entertained and impressed beyond my expectations. We live in exciting times creatively. As a practitioner I do not look at what other schools do, I focus on delivering the best, most current curriculum to MY students.
