Drama is very much a part of the life of Eagle House and we have earned a reputation for high quality performance.

The Jungle Book

In August at the Edinburgh Fringe we performed with actors from Cargilfield School in Edinburgh. This young vibrant company took Kipling's classic story into the urban jungle as we watched Mowgli battle against the fearsome Shere Kha

 

 

In a year we perform four or five productions and one of these takes place at the Wilde Theatre in Bracknell. This show has become our big spectacular, regularly featuring 120 children in the cast. This gives all children the chance to experience musical theatre in a professional setting with full band, set, costumes and make-up.

Pre-Prep and Years 3 & 4 perform their own shows once a year as well as leading assemblies and other performances.  

We also produce a studio production in our own Edleston Performing Arts Studio and this allows actors in Years 6 to 8 to take part in a dramatic show. As well as this show we perform smaller workshops and talent shows over the academic year. All Eagle House boys and girls are encouraged to take part.

Performance is very important for all children and being part of a team that tells a story on stage is central to every child's education. Children like to be involved with a production and there are always backstage opportunities as well as plenty of performance roles.
