Students and staff at Bishop Fox’s school have had a spooktacular start of term making and performing an immersive Theatre event, with this year’s Scary School Tours: The Zombie Apocalypse.
The sell-out event (Monday 31st October and Tuesday 1st November)was a huge hit, with audiences touring school in an interactive zombie chase where they went in search of codes and antidotes to save the day and stop the zombie outbreak!
Inspired by a number of sources, including Punchdrunk Theatre, Banksy’s Dismaland and Escape Room, Head of Drama Selina Keedwell expressed how proud she was of the student’s approach to the whole event:
“The students have been amazing – making their own costumes, applying Special FX make-up techniques and designing their own performance spaces, characters and scripts. 70+ students performed 13 times each night, with tours going every 10 minutes. We are very proud of the professional approach they took. It’s been a joy to work with such a brilliant cast and crew.”
A special thanks goes to ISPS Production Services for their technical support.
