Academy End of Year Showcase: Within the Windrush Dream

Saturday 22 June at 11:30am - 12:30pm

About the show

Welcome to the Windrush.

This show unites five classes, Young and Talented Theatre Creators and SteelPan classes. The students adapted the original play Within the Windrush Dream by Suzann McLean, Juwon Ogunbe and Jordan Xavier, inspired by the arrival of the HMT Empire Windrush 76 years ago to this day. Our team of dedicated tutors, assistants and volunteers worked closely with our students to adapt the play to fit the dynamics of the group in choosing the cast, the costumes, and props for the show. The students worked closely with their tutors to invent new moves for the dance routines, to develop their characters and write the lyrics, all to create this spectacular show.
