As many of you know, a number of Esher High students with a keen interest in Drama are heading off to Serbia at the start of April with Mr. Allin to devise an original show with their counterparts at the Belgrade English Language Youth Theatre group. The Belgrade students will be then be coming over to the UK to finish workshopping the play and to give a performance of the final show.
The team in Serbia are doing everything they can to raise money to help fund visas, travel, tours and funds for the production (including props and costumes), and they have set-up a crowdfunding page with a target of $500 - though of course anything above and beyond this will only help to enhance the students' experience of visiting us in the UK.

Thanks to the tireless work of Mr Allin and the Drama department at Esher High, many of our children are looking forward to the upcoming Drama trip to Serbia, which runs from April 3 to 7. The trip was offered to students with a keen interest in drama in Years 8, 9 & 10, and the lucky students who signed up for the trip will have the opportunity to devise an original show in association with the Belgrade English Language Youth Theatre - click here to find out more about the group.
The two teams will work together on the original show during the trip, and then the Serbia team will visit Esher High to piece together the final performance. The play will then be performed at Esher High and live streamed back to Serbia.
