Hi, I am an English teacher in a high school. Currently we have no provision for drama. For years I have wanted to run a performance, but I really have no idea where to start. I have been put-off doing this by other colleagues in the past, but having just seen an amazing performance, I am inspired and I am determined to try again. I know there are lots of colleagues from different departments who would get involved, and some of the students are desperate to perform. I think my HT would be happy to do this, but I would like to have a plan and do my research before I speak to her. I think what I am asking for help with is: Is there a production that teachers tackle as their 1st one? What are the challenges I need to be prepared for? As you can see, I really am starting from scratch. My PGCE is also in Drama, so I feel I have some skills to teach, but I am lacking in all other areas of putting on a performance! I think maybe my first step is to speak to HT, then ask if any staff would be involved, then see if there are any skills we have as a collective? Please feel free to comment! Thanks for reading.
