In celebration of Book Week, West End in Schools theatre company, visited Archibald today and performed a fabulous musical entitled Shine a Light. They create literacy musicals to showcase the importance of children’s books in a way that teachers and children love. All of the performers are professionals from West End shows like Matilda and Chicago.
The overall theme of SHINE A LIGHT is overcoming fear of the unknown. The story highlights how unfounded some fears can be and encourages children to talk to other people about their concerns.
