Students revisit their childhoods to put on a nostalgic, and funny, play
Talented teenagers are reverting back to childhood behaviour to put on a nostalgic play full of humour and good memories.
BTEC Performing Arts students from Plumstead Manor School are set to play out their final show Kids on June 28 and June 29.
The musical is based on the premise all children are born highly intelligent, but by the time they can effectively communicate, they have either forgotten the information or had it knocked out of them.
Sarah Perry, Senior Performing Arts Administrator, said: “It’s really funny – it’s a play by adults playing children.
“There’s a baby in it and the oldest character is about six or seven.
“The students are really good and stay in character.
“It strikes up memories with you of things you did as a child like play-fighting, bullying, climbing frames and eating ice creams.
"It's suitable for children but a lot of it will go over their heads.
“It’s a nostalgic piece and thought provoking.”
Kids, which includes songs during the opening and closing, is being put on at The Space, a new performance hall at the Harding Centre, Plumstead Manor.
Shows start at 7pm and tickets are £5, available on the door.
