Between 2004 and 2010 Sue Casson worked on

a series of summer shows and nativities

in her local 'outstanding' OFSTED rated school, encouraging children of all primary ages

to create and perform their own work.

 

It culminated in a collaborative presentation of

5 Kent  schools celebrating the cultural Olympiad at The Stag Theatre, as part of the Sevenoaks Festival.

 'Inspirational!'
