Consequences KS3 & 4
Consequences: A Humberside Soap Opera
(12 – 16 year olds)
We are working with a small number of Hull-based secondary school pupils and their teachers to produce an original soap opera called Consequences. Set in the city during lockdown, writers, actors and one of our directors will work alongside secondary school students to generate ideas, write scripts and guide the direction for Consequences, culminating in the production of a 25-minute weekly episode which will air on our YouTube channel every Friday at 5pm.
As we only had limited spaces available, this project is currently at capacity. If you would like to be added to the cancellation list, or you’re keen to discuss any future opportunities with our creative learning team, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
George Middleton of Hull has three daughters; Sophie lives in New Zealand; Rebecca shares a house with seven other people in London and Jamie lives with their mum.
Join the family as they navigate the challenges of lockdown, together but apart.
