THE SECRETS of stagecraft were revealed to pupils during the Meridian School's performing arts week. A series of performances and workshops have taken place throughout the week, culminating in a concert tomorrow (Friday) featuring students from Meridian and several other schools in Royston.
Jenny Warburton, head of Performing Arts, said: "It's been a brilliant week. We've had pupils from across the school getting involved, and drama brings out the best in them."
Members of the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) visited Meridian on Monday, while Wednesday saw pupils perform a cabaret show, Live on the Line.
Joe Daintry, from Royston-based amateur dramatic group CADS, gave workshops on stage design and lighting.

"It's good to introduce the children to all aspects of stagecraft, so they know that, even if they're not on stage, they can still be part of dramatic productions."
