Students cast a spell with stage performance

Young performers made their own kind of stage magic with their production of Caryl Churchill’s Vinegar Tom.

The performing arts BTec students at South Cheshire College used contemporary music, voice, rhythm and dance to bring their first full length production to life.

College staff, students and members of the public were invited to watch the students’ interpretation of this dark play which uses the death and destruction of the 17th Century Salem witch trials to explore fear, hatred and persecution in our own society.

Performing arts lecturer Caroline Fox said: “This was a fantastic opportunity for students to showcase their skills in front of a wider audience at college.

“This was the first full length assessed production for students on their course and they all enjoyed taking part.”
