French Theatre Production
In March, all students in Y9 and 10 who study French had an opportunity to watch a French theatre production hosted by visiting theatre company, Onatti Productions.
All actors are French native speakers who are trained to perform with clear, slow delivery and effective use of mime in order to improve students’ listening skills and to provide students with a valuable and enjoyable learning opportunity beyond the classroom. This year’s play, Mon Père ne me comprend pas, was an account of a teenager who felt misunderstood by her family members and wanted them all to change. But what would be the consequences if her wish came true?
The play was an interactive experience and students from Manor High School impressed the French actors and their peers with their French skills, performing improvised scenes with the actors during the play.
Thank you to Onatti Productions for another authentic performance for our French students.
