Following an open audition earlier this year Tait Brennan Year 9 was successfully cast in ‘A Stone’s Throw’, she was the youngest in a cast that drew talent from across NI.
Rehearsals took place over the half-term break and then the final performances happened last week at Space @ SERC, Bangor. The audiences were made up of pupils from a selection of post primary schools across the province. Altogether this was an incredible experience for Tait, she learned so much from the project and gained valuable performance experience.
A Stone’s Throw was funded by CCEA and will be available as an educational resource for all post primary schools to support the delivery of Citizenship and Drama at Key Stage 3 from April 2019.
The cast then had the pleasure to perform the play again for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, when they visited Ballymena last Thursday.
