Alex Clifton, Artistic Director of Storyhouse, said ‘We are really thrilled with our new partnership with Queen’s Park High. We hope the school’s pupils can feel part of the open air theatre, and be inspired by the work we are creating there.’
Lyndsay Watterson, Headteacher of Queen’s Park High, said ‘Working in partnership with Storyhouse is an enviable position for a school to be in, as the opportunities it affords bring the professional world of the performing arts in line with our students’ learning experiences.’
