On Monday 11th February, the ‘Onatti’ French theatre company came to the Borrington site to perform in French for our Year 7 students.
The play was about two friends in an Escape Room with an Egyptian / Tutankhamun theme, and it was entirely in French. That sounds very complex, but the play was written with this age group in mind and it really was a lot of fun.
The actors had our students shouting out the answers to riddles, helping them with codes, passing on messages between the actors, and all in French! The students deserve a really big well done for their positive and proactive attitude, especially the four children who went up to help and ended up performing in French in front of a whole year group!
It was a fantastic event. Onatti will be back March to perform for us in German – it should be loads of fun!
“The actor and actress included the audience very well. It was unique – I hope they come and do another play!’’
“Even though it was in French I understood what was going on and it was brilliant!’’
“The actors had a lot of expression in their speech and really emphasised their words. This made it funny.’’
“Clever and really cool!’’
“The play was outstanding and left me with a huge smile on my face and thank you!’’
