Creative Students try to scare you silly

Creative Arts and Media students from Shrewsbury College are putting on a Fright Night to make you jump this Halloween.

The Performing Arts block at London Road Campus will be transformed into a creepy dungeon on October 31, with Performing Arts, Music and Media students combining their skills to put on a Fright Night that is sure to scare you silly.

Participants are invited to meander through a combination of entertaining scenarios on foot. Each creative subject will play their part in the spooky evening with live music, scary visual media, singing, dancing and acting. Full costumes and gruesome makeup add the final touches to the hard work the students have put in.

Performing Arts, student Chloe White, 16, from Shrewsbury, commented: “I have really enjoyed the rehearsals so far - I will be performing a dance on the night. The Fright Night is the first performance I will do since starting at Shrewsbury College. The preparation has been helpful in learning about characterisation. Also, I can’t wait to scare everybody!”

Gina Evans, Performing Arts teacher, said: “Fright Night is the first performance for our new students, so it’s a brilliant way for them to get started. It is a lot of fun to take part in, but also a part of their curriculum and it goes towards their final grades. The students get to perform in an unusual setting and there is great audience interaction. Because of the interaction you don’t know how each audience member will react, therefore the students learn improvisation skills and have to quickly think on the spot.

“We have been doing a Halloween performance for seven years and the students enjoy it every time. It is an exciting opportunity and they get to dress up and have an enjoyable night. The event is not recommended for under 7s and fancy dress is optional! Bring a torch.”

Fright Night takes place on October 31 with performances at 6.30pm, 7pm and 7.30pm. Tickets are £5 for adults and £3 concessions can be reserved by emailing boxoffice@shrewsbury.ac.uk with some available on the door on the night.
